    Right before the holidays, there was a link posted to explain how to update OfficeXP to SP1 from an "administrative" install. The link I had saved is no longer vaild, can someone please re-post it?

    Office Service Pack Install

    I just happened to cut and paste for future use..................


    Follow all of these instructions to the letter and you can apply SP1.



    If you tried to apply the Office XP SP1 patch to your copy of the Corporate
    version and keep getting an error message like "Error applying patch to
    C:\config.msi\PT121A.tmp" here is what you need to do to successfully apply the
    patch.

    NOTE: I assume your boot drive is C:. Change drive letter if necessary.

    First of all you need to download this file:

    http://download.microsoft.com/downl...-us/oxpsp1a.exe

    NOT OXPSP1.EXE !!!!!!!!!!!!! You need the Administrative version of the patch.


    1. Put your Office XP cd in your cd-rom drive

    2. Click start

    3. Click Run

    4. Type "D:setup /a" (This will install a VALID ADMINISTRATIVE POINT
    INSTALLATION)
    I assume your CD-ROM is D:. If not use the correct CD-ROM drive letter.

    5. Specify the Organization/CD-Key/And location (make location C:Office)

    6. Let it install

    7. Extract the oxpsp1a.exe to (C:adminupdate)

    8. Click Start

    9. Click Run

    10. Type "msiexec /p C:\adminupdate\MAINSP1_Admin.msp /a C:\Office\proplus.msi"

    11. DON'T specify Organization/CD-Key/ or change the location

    12. Let it install

    13. Click Start

    14. Click Run

    15. Type "msiexec /p C:\adminupdate\OWC10SP1_Admin.msp /a C:\Office\owc10.msi"

    16. DON'T specify Organization/CD-Key/ or change the location

    17. Let it install

    18. Click Start

    19. Click Run

    20. Type "msiexec /i C:\Office\proplus.msi REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=vomus"

    21. YOU SHOULD HAVE OFFICE XP SP-1! V.10.3416.3501

    22. You may delete the C:adminupdate and C:Office directory now...

    23. I made a back-up of the C:Office before deleting!



    I can't remember who posted it before, and I hope they won't mind me putting up.............Also this is my first Post
