  • 1. Error 1406 Installation Problem
    Hi there, I originally posted this to the office.setup newsgroup, with no reply yet. I've also posted to the WinXP Help and Support group (no reply yet there either). In addition to the information below I tried running the Office Update. It downloads, but the installation fails, perhaps due to the 1406 error below. Using Windows XP Pro SP2 and trying to install Upgrade version of Office Pro 2003. Get Error 1406 relating to registry permissions. The upgrade was from Office Pro SR1 2000 (note: all Windows XP updates applied, and Office 2000 had all updates applied also). Checked KB but couldn't find anything specific to the WinXP Pro and Office 20003 Pro scenario. Any suggestions as to why this is happening and how I can get around it? Also, my 2nd disk Business Contact Manager refuses to install. It gets to approx 95% the way through the installation and then rolls back. Would this have anything to do with the problems experienced with error 1406 on Disk 1? Believe Excel and Word were problems, but there may have been a third app that I missed. The Office 2000 install was complete and when I Upgraded I followed the Upgrade choice and system selected Run All from My Computer. Hoping for assistance to solve these to glitches. Thanks so much!!

    I've tried multiple toimes to download Microsoft Office Service Pack 3. I can't get the download to complete. Has anyone else had this problem?
  • 3. Error Message: Unable to check for updates
    when I try to check for updates I get this error message: The Office Update site is unable to check for updates on this computer. This may be happening because of one of the following reasons: You do not have administrative privileges for this computer. There is a network problem and the detection catalog used by the Office Update site failed to download. Go back to the Downloads home page and try running detection again. Windows Installer patch files (.MSP files) from previously applied Office updates are missing from the \Windows\Installer hidden directory on your computer. MSP files are stored on your computer after update installation completes because they need to be referenced for future update operations. If the files are missing you will not be able to apply Office updates. You may also be unable to uninstall Office products as a result of the same problem. Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services for assistance. You installed Office updates in the past and then upgraded from Windows Installer version 1.0 to Windows Installer version 1.1. For more information see the KB article Windows Installer May Prompt for Install Source if Unavailable. Search for Office updates in the Download Catalog Report the error to Microsoft I dont know what it means to have administrative privledges. This is my own laptop. thanks so much

Office 2003 update wants to download Outlook updates when Outlook isn't installed

I've installed Office 2003 Basic on my wife's machine. (She only really 
needs Word but I've installed Excel too just in case.) I did the update 
thing (SP etc) and I noticed that the updates for Outlook are flagged even 
though Outlook's not installed--and never will be.

Why are the Outlook updates flagged and can I keep them from being?

Hi Bob,

The Office update site offers updates based on the product installed, rather than just the selected features of that product.  The
updates are saved on the PC and 'kick in' when you do change features.

If you're using MS Update (Windows and Office update service) you can choose the 'do not show me this update again' option when
updates are offered or downloaded.

1.After Installing Office 2003 without Outlook Getting Updates for Outlook

I an in the process of installing Office 2000, XP, 2003 and Office 2007.  I am up to 2003 and have
been very careful not to install Outlook.  Why when I use Windows Update do I get updates for

	Update for Outlook 2003 (KB943649)
	Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 (KB953432)

I also have one for Outlook's junk mail filter and some for Outlook 2002.

I do not have any version of Outlook installed on this machine -- not even Outlook Express.  Why am
I getting hot fixes for Outlook?
