  • 1. Outlook Pro 2003 SP2 update legal issues
    I recently received My Service Pack 2 update CD's, The paperwork that came with it states " If you are using Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 or Microsoft Office Access 2003, installation of SP2 is required for legal reasons." What are these reasons? Where can I find a copy of these?
  • 2. Updating 2003. Asked for CD 2000. Update unsuccessful
    Have upgraded from Office 2000 Premium to Office 2003 Pro. Installed from CD OK. Now updating on MS web site. Have got to part which requires Service Pack 3 for Office 2000 (yes, really) to be installed. Installation requires disc of Office 2000 Premium to be inserted in drive. Have done that. But still get Update Unsuccessful message, and info that update was unable to find file data1.msi - but it's right there, on the 2000 premium CD-ROM! Any advice very welcome!

    How do I load a registered copy of Office 2000 Premium upgrade onto a new computer with no previous Office installation? To comply with the license, I understand I must delete the Office programs from the old machine.

I have downloaded this update (SR-1a), but intallation asks for the Office 
2000 Premium disk. I have the install disks (update from previous Office 
version) but nothing indicates "premium". I am running Office 2000 
Professional on an XP Pro OS. I would like to install this update if 
possible. The message from the installer asks me to look for data1.msi. Data1 
is the install disk, but no msi. Any suggestions? Can't find this info on MS

Hi, maduce,

Use the Windows Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs applet to see what
programs are installed.  You may have multiple versions of Office installed.
Uninstall what you don't need and run setup again.

If all else fails, run the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility to remove all
registry entries related to Office, then re-install from the CDs you have.
If your CD was an upgrade, you may need to provide proof of the previous
version before re-installing, so make sure you have all your CDs before
doing any removal.

Thanks Susan,
I am in contact with MS Tech support on this as well and they have suggested 
a particular method of installing SR-1a. I am going to update Outlook 2000 
(within Office 2000) to Outlook 2002 from the disk I received with the HP 
iPAQ pocket PC I just acquired. I thought it was a good idea to update Office 
2000 before installing this software - which synqs with the iPAQ. In 
addition. I am probably going to install XP SP2 in the near future.

1.Office 2K Service Release 1a (SR-1a) does not install for Office Standard

Went to the MS Office Web site and requested a scan of my 
computer for needed Office updates.  
The scan reported that there are a bunch of updates

Downloaded this file, ran the installation, and at one

The installer then fails.
