and all critical fixes.

Have installed Office 2000, gone to Office Update site and 
when i try to install Office 2000 SP1 it hangs half way 
through the process. Reboot, try again, and this time the 
update reboots my machine (crash) halfway through the

2.Office update detects update for Office XP and I have office 2000

Office update detects update for Office XP and I have office 2000 as well as 
XP as the OS.

What Office XP components might it be detecting?  I updated Outlook from the 
distribution CD as part of installation of ActiveSynch 3.7.1 for my Dell AXIM 
X50v PDA.

Are there any problems applying the Office XP updates in this circumstance 
as I have only Offfice 2000 components installed and in use?

3.Word v.X With embeded Excel charts from Win Office 2000/XP crashes every time

I have a cross platform office. I am running diffrent versions of MS
Office, Including v.X, 2004 mac, Office 2000 and XP for PC. Whenever
my users get a file from the PC side with embded Excel charts it just
shuts down office. In 2004 it opens with no problem. i have re created
this with multiple files over diffrent machines and every time it is
the same. I have opened the file in 2004 and deleted the Excel data
resaved it but when opened in v.X it stil lcrashes. when i jsut copy
all the info minus the excel charts to a new doc it opens. Once i  re
add any Excel data back comes the crashes.

4.Office Update failure, fresh Office 2000 install on XP Home

I just installed Office 2000 Small Business on a brand new Win XP Home 
machine, and then I ran Office Update.  It successfully installed SR-3 along 
with a number of other updates, but there are eight updates which download 
but fail when they try to install.  They do not call for a CD, which in any 
case I have should I need them.  I've tried restarting, turning off 
anti-virus software, and installing each update individually, all to no 
avail.  Any ideas on what to try next?  I remember a problem like this years 
ago, and the solution was to get hold of the update file directly and install 
it via another mechanism, but I don't recall what that was.

The offending updates are:


5.Is it necessary to install Office 2000 update if I have Office XP.

After I download all the updates, the Install program asks for something from 
the Office 2000 CD.  Since I don't have that (I only have the XP Version) I 
get stuck.  If I manually download the full version of the program, it asks 
where I want to INSTALL the file.  I have no idea where to put it.  Can 
anyone help?
Thank you!
