  • 1. Office 2003 SP1 Installation Error
    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. Any ideas about the file or how to remove the installation process so I can use Excel agian? Thanks! Gary
  • 2. Office 2003 SP1 Instal Failure
    After downloading the full version of Office 2003 SP1, and olso the online download/instal, all I get is a dialogiue that tells me "The update cannot be installed." Typical uninformative MS dialogue - not even an error number to make searching for the error easier! Anyone got any ideas the reason for this failure, or on how to over come it? If it will help I can e-mail the "OHotfix(0000x).log" and "OHotfix(0000x)_msi.log" of my various attempts at installing SP1. -- Tweet tweet Byg Byrd

Bad news, after file extraction i now get a mesg telling me: Office 2003 Service pack 1 (SP1) The Update cannot be applied OK On hitting OK, the SP terminates... TIA Paul

What update(s) is this happening with?
This could be happening for a variety of reasons, your previous patches may 
have become corrupted, your installation may be additionally damaged, etc. To 
give me some detailed debugging information you can try downloading the 
update(s) individually from the Microsoft Download Center 
 http://www.**--****.com/ , try installing 
them manually (just double click). See which fail and what error message they 
give you.
Another option, in case your previous patch information has become 
corrupted, is to try the Windows Installer Cleanup utility, 
 http://www.**--****.com/ ;en-us;290301, but I 
recommend this as a final step before considering uninstalling and 
reinstalling Office.
