  • 1. Can no longer update Office 2000
    My Office 2000 under ME will no longer allow the updates/downloads to function. This is very recent and out of the blue problem. The search for updates stops at 40% and redirects to a MS web page that is nonsensical. I have tried System Restore and this does't work, nor does "Detect and Repair". Short of a reinstall which I'm tired of doing and may or may not work, what can be done to fix this Microsoft problem so that my business records are not put at risk due to backdated software.
  • 2. How can I complete an unsuccessful download of Office 2000 servic.
    After a Blue Screen of Death experience, I had to reinstall my operating system (Windows 2000), and then one by one, install various programs that were no longer functioning. Office 2000 got messed up, and each time I attempt to launch Word, a window appears, looking for a Windows Installer to launch it with. It eventually opens and looks/works fine, but won't launch normally. The Windows Office update scan recommended downloading the Service Pack 3. When I get to the last step in the process, it fails to completely download and install. How do I get around this? I inserted the original Office 2000 disc when prompted during the update, but to no avail. I'm unable to update with the Service Pack 3.
  • 3. Silient Install of Office Service Packs
    I am configuring a script to install Office 2k3 Prof, Visio 2k3, Project 2k3, and all SPs in a onetime login script. I use the /q argument for the service pack and it does not prompt the user for any entry until it finishes. I get a screen, of that says "Successful install, Push OK to continue". Well this is the problem, because I want the OK to be automatically be assumed so the script can continue with the next SP install. With 3 Office suite apps, I need to install 3 seperate service packs. Any special argument that I am missing? This will help me roll out office to 150 desktops, without having to instruct users to push ok, when the screen comes up. Thanks for any assistance. Jason

Online Office Update checks Office XP SP-1 for Office 2000 products

When I go to the Office Online Office Update it checks off that I should 
install Office XP Service Pack 1 (SP-1) for Office 2000 programs. 
The OS is XP Home.  When I open the individual programs (Excel, 
Powerpoint, Word, etc.) they all indicate that they are Office 2000 
programs.  When I check them in System Information, Office 10 
Applications, they are listed at Office 2002 programs.  Should I 
download the Office XP Service Pack 1 or the updates for Office 2000 
products?   TIA.  SJ

Do you have any Office XP programs on your computer?  Look under Control
Panel, Add/Remove programs to check. Sometimes Publisher or Visio is the
later version.

It is asking to update the Publisher installation. Go ahead and install the
Office XP patches.

Thank you.  Will this also update the Office 2000 programs or will I 
still have to update them with the Office 2000 updates?  Did installing 
Publisher 2002 cause the Office 2000 programs to 'become' Office 2002 
programs?  Sorry for all the questions, but I just finished a complete 
restore of my computer!  Thanks again.  SJ

Hi S.J.,

The Office 2000 and Office XP/2002 app updates are
separate.  Office 2000 may be using some updated
versions from the 2002 app that are common to both
but no, adding Publisher 2002 did not upgrade
your Office 2000 apps, it just means you have versions
from two different Office product generations installed.

Would it make any sense to install the update to Publisher 2002 
separately?  It's available on the Microsoft website.  But, if I install 
the Office XP Service Pack 1, will it only update Publisher 2002?  Then 
will I be able to install the Office 2000 updates?  I find this a bit 
confusing as you can tell.  Thank you for your help.  SJ

Hi S.J.,

Yes, it can get confusing.  The Publisher 2002
update and the Office XP Service Pack have different
content.  The Publisher 2002 update adds the ability
to create web pages using Filtered (leaner) HTML.
The Service Pack updates the Core Office files that
are common to each of the 2002 series apps, including
MS Publisher 2002.

5.Unable to update Word 2000 SR-1 using Office 2000 SP-3

I get the following error message when I try to apply the Office 2000 SP-3

"Error 1305: error reading from Word 2000 CD file D: 
MSWord\PFiles|MSOffice\Office\Graph9.exe. Verify the file exists and that you

does exist on my hardrive in the folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft 
Office\Office. However, the install program will not let try to access the 
file in any other location than on my MS Word 2000 CD. 
Can anyone solve this problem for me?
