Need help with SP1 for Office XP

soemeone wrote this months ago, it works..follow it carefully:
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:


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!


Question is why I would apply SP1 or SP2 if original version works without single glitch.
I guess it's just an expectation.
Thanks everybody for such a fast respond.
