Can't install latest Excel 2003 security update on Vista

Postby Nick Payne » Thu, 12 Oct 2006 12:47:30 GMT

I can't get the latest security update for Excel 2003 (KB923088) to install 
on Vista RC2. All the other patches that were just released for Office 2003 
install fine, but not this one. After it failed the first time I rebooted 
and tried again as the first action after logging in, but got the same 
error. An XP/Office2003 workstation getting its updates off the same WSUS 
server can install the same update without any problem.

WindowsUpdate.log shows the following:

I'm having  a similar problem, but on XP.  It installed fine on a different 
XP Pro machine on my domain, but not on another.  Strange and arbitrary.  No 
matter how many times I try, it won't install.  Some weird MSI installer 
error.  From the App log, I get:

Product: Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 - Update 'Security 
Update for Excel 2003 (KB923088): EXCEL' could not be installed. Error code 
1603.

ore information: I expanded the excel.msp file from the update CAB
downloaded by the automatic updates client and tried running it from a
command prompt run as administrator. The update fails part way through with
an error msg saying that it can't update c:\windows\system32\mapisvc.inf.

If from the same administrator command prompt I run notepad and open
mapisvc.inf and try to save a change, I get an error msg saying that I need
permission from SYSTEM to modify the file. So it looks like something in the
Vista security setup is screwing up the installation of this Excel security
update...
