I hope I got the correct descussion group for this.  I am trying to save an 
audio voice message to a CD WR.  When I left click the file and select the d 
drive which is my cdwr I am prompted to select where I wish to save the file. 
 I select the D drive and a folder on that CD but when I hit save it comes up 
with this

You do not have permission to save in this directory.  See the adminstrator 
to obtain permission.  

How do I set the permission to be able to save to this file.  I have saved 
to in in the past but it will no longerlet me.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Have you opened help & support and typed "save to cd" or "cd rw".  Lots of answers there.  What is your packet writing program?

1.Office XP Administrative Update Help

I am attempting apply Service Pack 2a using an 
Administrative Update for Office XP in my environment.  I 
have successfully updated my installation point using the 
msiexec (msiexec /a Admin Path\MSI File /p C:\Oxpsp2a\MSP 
File SHORTFILENAMES=1).  I checked the file versions and 
they are correct.

After running msiexec (msiexec /i Admin Path\MSI File 
REINSTALL=Feature List REINSTALLMODE=vomus) to update my 
product, the file versions are not updating.  I have 
checked both the Help, About menu and the file version of 
the EXE.  They are still retaining the old versions.  the 
log file also says that the upgrade was successful.

I have attempted un-installing Office XP and running the 
install again and I am still seeing the old file versions.

However, when I run MBSA,it reports that I do not need to 
apply Service Pack 2a and it seems to think the product is 
updated.  I just can not tell via the Help, About menu or 
the EXE's.

Is this a registry problem?

3.Administrative share (licensing question)

We have 75 licenses of Office XP Pro, and have created an administrative
share point for network installs, using the Volume License Product Key that
we got with the license.  We recently purchased an additional set of Office
licenses, which came with a seperate product key.  I'm assuming that we can
still use the same administrative share to install these new licenses, and
don't have to create a whole new share every time we obtain a few more
licenses to include the new number.

In other words, as long as we have the licenses, it really doesn't matter
which of our VLPK we use does it?

4.Office 2003 Administrative Installation Point Question

Hi All,

I'm in the process of reading about setting up an admininstrative 
installation point for Office 2003.  Do I need to install Office 2003 on a 
'baseline' machine from which to create transforms for customizations, or 
can the transforms be created from the administrative installation on the 
server?  With Office 2000, I used such a baseline machine, but I can't find 
anything that indicates that I need to do this.

Any & all help is appreciated.  Thanks.
