Security Update For Office Excel 2003

Security update for microsoft office excel 2003 (kb973475) and previously_security update for microsoft office excel 2003 (kb969681) and previously_security update for microsoft office excel 2003 (kb958436) and previously_. Said updates repeatedly attempt to install, which creates a restore point and stalls out the hp6663us running vista ultimate 64 version 6 sp 1 and norton 360 version 3. 8 until the update fails, which frees the laptop until the next time, usually the next day.

I spent hours with hp chat trying to resolve the issue but with no success. Update history shows this has been happening since at least 12/23/08. Other than for turning off microsoft update, how do i keep un-installable updates from wasting my time?

I have tried a few times now but keep getting the same result. Upon checking what version of microsoft office home and student 2007 i have it is the original version. I have also tried to download manually from microsoft's website but that didn't work either - the download failed with 6 minutes left (havn't tried to download that way again yet as new zealand internet very slow and was going to take another couple of hours) - was wondering if anyone can help me in this situation.

Error Code 646 - Problem Installing Security Update For Microsoft Office

Problems installing security updates for microsoft office system and all related programs within the microsoft office system (error code 646). I have a laptop that runs windows 7 for x64 bit. Every time i try to install a security update for the microsoft office 2007 system or any of the programs therein, i get the error code 646.

Everything else seems to successfully update. This is truly aggravating because when i go to shut down my computer, i have to wait until the updates are installed before it shuts down, but then when i turn it back on and shut it off again, it still says i have to install the same updates from when i last shut down and therefore have to wait again until they are installed.

It's a never ending cycle. What the heck is wrong with microsoft office that makes it to where everyone seems to be having the same issues? Don't you think this problem needs to be corrected instead of just suggesting to download manually? Downloading manually takes too much time and honestly makes no sense. What's the point of having windows update if everyone seems to have to do the microsoft office updates manually?

Office 2003 Issue - Microsoft Office End User License Agreement

Windows 7 pro, get "microsoft office end-user license agreement. " From office 2003 programs. I purchased a new hp computer with windows 7 pro, then loaded all of the software i'd been using on my old xp system. Every time i start any office 2003 app, i get a dialog box labeled "microsoft office end-user license agreement. " I must click on "accept" before continuing. I use an old vista solution of 'running as admin' and now i receive a box asking if it is alright to modify this program(registry i think). How can i stop this box from appearing?

Unable To Install Security Updates For Office 2003

I have been receiving continual unable to install error messages for windows update for security updates for my ms office 2003 components beginning 04/17/2010. On 04/15/2010, an update for 2007 ms office system was auto-installed - kb981715 - as were 9 other updates. After that, all office 2003 security updates have failed. Should i uninstall the 2007 ms office system update & reattempt to install the office 2003 updates? 

Failing to have updated security for my office components is quite concerning. Update provides links for the 646 error code, but the "fix" doesn't help. Since 06/08/2010, microsoft .net framework 1. 1 sp1 security update for windows vista and windows server 2008 (kb979906) has also failed to install - error code 643. Same deal - troubleshooting process fails. How can these be problems be corrected?

Microsoft Office Outlook 2003

Running windows xp media center edition 2005. I have office 2003 professional. Today, 7 june 09, apparently there were a lot of updates not only to xp but office as well. The .net and silverlight was just a couple of them. Anyway, after that, i rebooted as instructed but now i get an error when i try and reply to someone that has sent me an email. It states :  "the message interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists try restarting outlook. "

I have restarted outlook 2003 several times and i get the same error. I haven't changed my email account or anything (it seems) that would cause it not to operate properly as it had for the last year. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Microsoft Works 9 Security Update

I have been trying for the past 3 days now to install the microsoft works 9 security update onto my computer. I have tried through windows update and i have tried manually on the website (even where it lists that the new update is not recognizing office 2007 on computers). Still nothing! I need to update my computer fully! What do i do since it's not recognizing the folder on my computer for being installed already and not updating it? It tells me that once the folder is not recognized i have to cancel the installation and i need to be the administrator to give permission (which i am already). Help?

Installer Has Been Corrupted After Failed To Install Office Update

My windows installer has been corrupted since a failed to install office update (kb981715). Now i cannot install adobe reader. I have vista home premium, 32 bit on my dell inspiron 518 (purchased march 2009) last, april (2010) i had a failed to install update (kb981715) for microsoft office  2007 and after many , many hours working with a microsoft tech support, i finally was told to just hide that update because my "windows works plus" didn't need this update.

However, i believe that this "failed to install update" removed part of the windows installer and i have been unable to get updates for adobe reader and after i uninstalled that software, i could not install that new download at all.microsoft support page will not accept my correct product id, so now i can't even get that help. What will happen if i try to download a new windows installer?

Microsoft Security Essential (mse) Fail To Update

I have problems with my mse. I cannot update the virus definition automatically. So far i always update it manually (download the virus def then run it to my computer) i connect to internet through wireless network available in my apartment. The network is stable and quite fast. The first time i tried to update, it worked, but not anymore after.

It always give me the message :
Error code: 0x8024402c

Error description: microsoft security essentials couldn't install the definition updates because the proxy server or target server names can't be resolved. I searched on the microsoft website about the error code and had executed all the advices given but unfortunately it didn't work, at least for my computer. I'm not a knowledgeable person in computer, but i don't think it is the problem of internet connection, since i still able use my internet very well.

I turned-off my windows firewall and tried to update, but still didn't work. I didn't use any other antivirus or firewall software other than microsoft and i'm quite satisfied, at least until now.
However, to download the virus def 2 - 3 times a week (for manual update) is not a good thing, since i know the mse has auto update feature. Can any of you find the solution for this problem? I really appreciate your feedback.

My copies of office and windows 7 are completely legitimate and bought at the best buy. I had this problem also with vista. I don't understand what is going on.

Cannot Get Updates For Office 2003

After hours of talking on the phone i turn to these forums for help. I have windows 7 x64 professional with all the current updates. I also have ms office 2003. While i'm able to receive and update the os, i get no prompt or suggested updates for office 2003. Starting office 2003 and then clicking on "help/check for updates" does nothing. Interesting going to "control panel/system and security/windows update" and then clicking "get updates for other microsoft products. Find out more" also does nothing. My question: i exclusively use firefox and i'm wondering if ie is required to enable these functions? Currently i have ie disabled and not installed.

Downgrade To Office 2003

I still have 2003 office and professional software, i bought a new computer hp (my old one died - toshiba w/xp). It came with windows 7 home premium. Not knowing, i installed my 2003 office, but it didn't take the professional. Now it is not compatible with software and or hardware, now what. I don't have the money to upgrade everything, i just want my new computer to work. Now i can not open pdfs even though i installed my adobe professional 8. & Reader.

I am starting to immediately not like windows 7 and i want out! I have my disk to make my computer work with 2003 office professional but not with windows 7 installed. I can't use my hp printer that is working great with my other xp computer going through apple airport express as a print server so i don't want to change everything for windows 7.

What are my options that won't cost me any money. I do not want to pay to upgrade to windows 7 professional so i can download something else to make my other things work.

Here are some items that pop up: adobe acrobat: cannot use adobe reader to view pdf in your web browser. Reader will now exit. Please exit your browser and try again.
 
Microsoft office xp professional: the feature you are trying to use is on a cd-rom or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the microsoft office xp professional disk and click ok, and when i do, it basically says it won't except because there is a higher version.

Also pops up: the office assistant requires microsoft agent 2. 0 or later. This product is available on the office system pack.

Office 2003 Installation Issue

I am running ms vista with sp2 and when i try to use office 2003 office 2007 tries to install, the computer came with a trial addition for office 2007 i have uninstalled 2007, i have office 2003 installed and when i try to update it i get a response to update 2007 instead. And every time i go to ms update it gives me updates for office 2007.

This is getting very frustrating to say the least, i feel if ms is tying to cram office 2007 down my through they should give it to me at no charge or quit the! With all the problems the ms operating systems cause i am seriously thinking about changing to mac, another plus with mac is i won't have to worry about viruses. I am an advanced computer user and i have never had so much trouble an operating system as i have with windows, even linux responds better, for all the money windows costs it should be perfect by now!

Install Different Office Assistants In 2003

I lost my choice of office assistants (office 2003) when i got my new computer with windows 7. The same thing happened when i got vista. I found a knowledgeable tech at hp and it was a simple matter of installing the correct command prompts which were easily downloaded from microsoft agent and it worked great. I could choose my office assistant, instead of just having "clip-it" and nothing else. I made a copy of the correct prompts; unfortunately, may old laptop with vista crashed and the hard drive was replaced. I lost my notes.

Does anybody know how to get the command prompts from microsoft agent to install the different office assistants in '03.

Install Office 2003 Pro

I just upgraded (got a new) laptop with win7 home premium 64bit, pre-installed. No e-mail. I do have a license for office pro 2003. I installed said office product, mostly it works. But when i try to set up my e-mail accounts i get an error message "the operation failed due to a registry or installation problem. Restart outlook and try again. If the problem persists, please reinstall"
I had read in one of these forums that office 2003 does work in win 7, but i failed to mark that spot.

Office 2003 Application Crashes

All, we're rolling out numerous desktop and laptop pcs /w win7 enterprise x74 (mostly new dell stuff) and with office 2003. (Upgrade is not an option at this time as we're a >5000 employees company)we're experiencing some strange appcrashes lately like in word 2003 when using it as e-mail editor in outlook. As soon as we close outlook, word crashes . This happens every time, so it's predictably. Starting outlook in safe mode w/o extensions didn't help. When word is open /w another document (from local disk or server share) then outlook can be started and stopped w/o any issues - so word only crashes if it's started with and stopped with outlook.

Another strange thing is excel dying in an appcrash randomly especially when using the clipboard to paste stuff into a cell. This is not predictable because we don't exactly know which action actually causes the behavior. This happens to fresh installations which are patched to the maximum available level (sp3 including all following patches).

Unable To Reinstall Office 2003

Unable to (re)install office 2003 after repeated failure of security updates to office 2003. The security updates to office 2003 on my xp (sp3) kept failing all of last week. I contacted ms pc security support by phone and i was transferred from office setup dept to security update dept to customer service. And none of them had any idea of what the problem is. I lost patience with ms support. I followed others' technique posted on the web for same issue and tried to uninstall office 2003 and re-install. However my new office 2003 installation encounters the following error (same error i got when i tried to apply the security updates)

"Error 2932: an internal error occured.

(C:windowsinstaller{91e30409-6000-11d3-8cfe-0150048383c9)graph. Ico 131 )
Contact microsoft product support services (pss) for assistance. "

After the installer rolls-back all installs. Now i am left with no office 2003 (i tried office 2007 install with the same result). I would really appreciate if ms support engineer or other users can help with a fix for this. My desktop is hp pavilion pc running xp (sp3).

Office 2003 Programs Flicker After Upgrade

Since upgrading to windows 7 home premium from vista home premium, excel 2003, word 2003, and access 2003 from office 2003 professional sp3 have what i would call a refresh flicker. I'm running a dell intel core 2 duo with a samsung syncmaster monitor and had no "flicker" problems prior to upgrade. I tried the compatibility troubleshooter with no success. Other non-office programs work fine. Any suggestions?
