  • 2. Download of o2ksr1a
    My office 2000 crashes too often. I am prompted by Microsoft to download/install the file o2ksr1a.exe to my hard disk. It then says this file is already on my hard disk, do I wish to overwrite it? Now what? If the file is already there and is supposed to help the problem, why is MS suggesting I download it again?
  • 3. Office Download Review
    My Office XP/Pro download review no longer completes the scan and identifies the needed updates, whereas my Windows scan works. Any help would be appreciated.
  • 4. SP1 for Office 2003
    When I install Office 2003 SP1 I get an error during the install where it is tying to find a file called ZF561407.CAB. This file does not exit on any Office CD that I have 97,2000, or 2003. This error during the install will not allow me to open Excel now. Eveytime I try to open Excel it tries to reinstall Office SP1. I have posted before and havbe not gottena response. My Outlook keeps closing and Microsoft says the patch (SP) will fix this. The file again is ZF561407.CAB. I have checked all of the Office 2003 Pro CD's (I am the network admin so I keep all of the copies that we get) and none of them have this file on it. I have checked Office XP and that does not have it. Where do I get this file? Help please. Joe Kearney
  • 5. OLE stopped working after installing Office SP3
    I'm using Office 2000 and I use Object Linking and Embedding (OLE - I embed Excel spreadsheets into Outlook's task reminder) by going to Outlook's menu (Insert, Object, Microsoft Excel Worksheet) and embedding an Excel worksheet into a task reminder. Now that I've installed Office Service Pack 3, it no longer works. I can see the object's I've already created, but I can't edit them. If I right click the object and click edit, nothing happens, and double clicking the object doesn't let me edit it either - it does nothing. So I uninstalled Office, reinstalled Office, installed SP1a and it was working again. Then I installed SP3, and it's not working. I can create more OLE spreadsheets, but as soon as I click out of it and then try to go back to it to edit it, I can't. Is there a registry setting I can tweak that will allow me to continue using OLE? THANKS!

Office update failed

I have MS Office 2000 and I tried to update from SR-1 to 
SR-1 Professional and I was asked to insert my CD's. I 
purchased my computer second hand from a school and as 
such I do not have the CDs in my possession (and I am in 
Europe now!). The error message I am getting is "MS Office 
2000 SR-1 Professional Setup Failed."

Now, everytime I try to launch Excel, it goes into Windows 
Installer mode, and then asks for the CD again in order to 
install MS Office 2000 SR-1 Professional. 

How do I undo this update? I really don't need it, and I 
can't access my CDs.

1.Office Updates Fail on Office and MS update sites

I had trouble installing the updates from the MS site and then went to the 
Office update site. They downloaded , but failed to install. It had to do 
with Office not being activated, but it was. After research, I found a link 
to delete the Office activation file(opa11). After reactivating all my 
installed Office products, I tried again to install the updates. Needless to 
say they failed again. I've searched the knowledge base, but can't find 
anything that offers a solution. Any help would be appreciated.

2.Office 2K Office Update fails

Using Win XP Pro SP2, Office 2K SP3 and IE 7. Trying to use Office 
Update and the Active X control is installed. Checking gets to between 
91 - 97 percent and then system freezes. I mean HARD freezes! I have 
checked the MS KB and there is a troubleshooting article that is sort 
of relative( KB 304498). One of the steps is removing the 
OfficeUpdate11 folder in C:\Program Files. I don't have this folder 
but I do have a OfficeUpdate12 folder under my name folder\Appication 
Data in Docs and Settings. It has several cabs.

Can I remove this folder (per the KB) and any thoughts whether it will 
help my problem?

3.After reinstallation of Office 2000, Office Update fails

I was forced to reinstall XP, then to reinstall Office -- each to the same 

Trying to bring Office up to speed, some of the files are still in place and 
detected by Office, but not by Update.

Update insists that SP3 be installed, but About shows it is installed.


4.Office Update Fails (Office 2000)

I have Windows XP SP2 and Office 2000.  All software is legitimate and I 
have all the CD-ROMs with serial codes.

When I launch Office Update, the progress bar reaches 84% and then it gives 
me a message that Office Update is unable to check for updates.

I have a standalone PC, so it is not a matter of having administrative 
privileges.  I have always been able to run Office Update in the past.

What can I do to fix the problem?

tb update failed

I just got a new pc. I installed Office 2003 from a CD. I then did one round 
of updates successfully. I started a second round of updates, they downloaded 
successfully, then half way through the installation everything came to a 
halt. I tried to cancel the installation and that didn't work so I had to use 
"end task." Then I tried to download the second round of updates again and 
they failed. I tried to use "detect and repair" and get the message that 
another installation is already running. I tried to remove Office from my pc 
and start over, but again I get the message that I must complete the first 
installation before I can delete it.
