latest Office XP updates stop downloading

Microsoft OFFICE


  • 1. How to reapply updates?
    I installed office 2007 Pro on a new Windows 7 64 bit PC. I then got sp2 and a screen full of other updates. Long story, but I ended up uninstalling office and then putting it back on. Now Windows thinks I have done all the updates, and they probably are already downloaded. How do I get Update to detect which updates the office-as-installed actually needs, and get it to apply them? Alternatively, how do I reset Office's update status so it will go get them again? thanks, Allan
  • 2. Error 1402 when trying to install Office sp2
    I get an error 1402 setup cannot open HKEY_local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\Run\optionalcomponets\MSFS when trying to install Office Service Pack 2. Tried reinstalling and repairing software. I get the same error when trying to do this. What do I need to do?
  • 3. Office 2007 Updates Fail w/error #80070663
    I have Vista Home Basic and Office 2007 Enterprise. Vista Updates work OK, but the same group of Updates for the Office Suite fail daily with error 80070663 (not in error database)and sometimes other numbers that may be in the list but no help. I need to find out why and fix it or turn off updates. I'm tired of the daily update fail. If anybody has a clue, please let me know. Thanks...
  • 4. Installing Office 2007 (Keeping previous versions at the same time
    I have Office 97/2000 both installed on my lap top. The company that I curently work for has all its reports in 2007 so I have downloaded an upgrade, but before I install it, is there a procedure available to install 2007, but keep all the previous vesions on the lap top. I am currently running Win XP Pro operating system when the 2007 is installed.

latest Office XP updates stop downloading

Postby THVkd2ln » Sat, 12 Feb 2005 19:35:02 GMT

I'm trying to get the latest Office XP updates downloaded - KB873352 and 
KB890829.  However whether I try to download & apply both or just one at a 
time, the download transfer hangs anywhere - e.g. after 64KB, 685KB (extreme 
numbers seen so far).

Once this happens I tend to have to use Task Manager to force IE6 to close. 
I have all latest patches on my Win2000 Prof machine, and am trying to do all 
this on an administrator account.

Anyone else having this, or might know what the cause is?

This sounds like a general network error.  I would make sure you have a 
solid connection and don't run any other downloads in the background to give 
Office Update your full bandwidth.  You can also try downloading one update 
at a time to ensure one finishes and installs.  If you are behind a proxy 
you may want to play with those settings as well.

Thanks for the reply.

I kept trying, and managed to get them to apply individually as you suggest. 
It did take a few ries though (maybe lots of other people downloading them 
too?). I'm on a 256K connection so with little to no other traffic on my link 
I wouldn't expect my end to be an issue.

2.823372 fix and latest office XP update

The latest bunch of office XP updates (I think specifically KB824934) appear

Anyone else had this experience and can confirm?

By the way, I am on the phone to MS support at the moment listening to hold

3.After downloading the latest office updates, my outbox won't s

Hi Susan, 
	Whatever the problem was, it working alright now. To answer your 
questions, I using Office 2003 and have an ISP that uses POP. The mail was 
just sitting in the Outbox. I wasn getting any error messages. Maybe the 
problem was with the ISP and I only noticed it after installing the updates 
for Office. Anyway, thanks for responding. I appreciate your trying to help.

4.Download latest Office 2003 updates

I cannot download the latest two Office 2003 updates. The first is a security 
update, the second a French spellcheck & Thesaurus. I have tried the normal 
file size, the fullfile, with & without my installation CD. I have sufficient 
available disk space.
Any ideas?

5.Downloading latest updates for Office 2007

There are 5 new updates for office 2007 that will not update for me.  I keep

but I cannot find any other reason it won't update.  Can anyone help?
