I can't get it to install but I have read that many people that have had no trouble. I have the corporate Office XP and it won't upgrade?

Can someone tell me or give me a like to the procedure to doing this please?

I didn't write this, found it on some forum, just make sure you copy all the files on your office xp corp version disk to your hard drive. good luck!

SP1 Update:

firstly it will be easier to just uninstall your current office xp
installation.

Ok run this in the command box (start/run)
D:\setup /a
this will copy the stuff from the office cd to the hard disk
this creates a administration installation point on your HD (c:\office)

then download the service pack from this place (40megs)
http://download.microsoft.com/download/officexpstandard/sp/oxpsp1/w98nt42kme
xp/en-us/oxpsp1a.exe

open the exe and extract the to files to c:\config.msi
create a "temp" dir in C drive

then run these 2 commands in the run box again (separately 1 after the
other)

msiexec /p C:\Config.Msi\MAINSP1_Admin.msp /a C:\Office\PROPLUS.MSI
SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb /L* c:\temp\1.log

msiexec /p C:\Config.Msi\OWC10SP1_Admin.msp /a C:\Office\OWC10.MSI
SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb /L* c:\temp\2.log

it will seem like a quick operation but open the log files created to see if
the msi patch updates were successful (right at the end)

then reinstall office xp from the c:\office location like normal

and now you have a office XP installation which is fully updated

update: this works for enterprise/corporate version (possibly only)
