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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
