...Is this also your thread http://www.techist.com/showthread.ph...hreadid=121440 :freak: ?

Disable antivirus software and try again. Also try installing the updates in Safe Mode (With networking).

Disable Caps Lock.


If it's a bootleg copy of Office, or an incorrect CD Key, it won't apply updates.

...Well, with my 'legal' Microsoft Office 2003 installed on my system, I install Microsoft Office Updates at the Microsoft Office Downloads page...

http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/of...e/default.aspx

...Seems as though it doesn't check the product key of Microsoft Office, however through Windows Update, you wouldn't be able to download Office updates deployed there - but only if your copy of Windows XP is illegitimate and fails authentication.

oh they check all right. they just don't tell you. if you have a blacklisted key you can't update. you can have a key from somebody else and it's possible you can update
