Hi,

Most likely you has Office 2003 Web Components which are updated by Office
2007 SP1.

See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/937961/en-us



The Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack Service Pack 1 (SP1) is a separate
update and is covered in KB 940289.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/940289/en-us



Please let us know if one of the above is not the cause of the SP1 prompt
from MU.



Thank you



Eric

[Drat, replied to Eric instead of the group - sorry]

Don't want to repeat myself in yet another thread (I've posted in two other
threads on this topic if you want more of my details)...but this is a new
suggestion. Thanks!

I see that the "Office XP Web Components" are indeed a line item that can be
chosen during the manual (i.e. not automatic) setup of both Office XP and
FrontPage XP. I just double-checked both setups in Add/Remove Programs - I
did not select "Web Components" during the initial installation and the
choice remains X'd out today. I must conclude that the Office XP Web
Components are NOT installed on my system. I don't have any of the files
referred to in the KB 940289 article other than MSO.DLL (mine is a 10.x
version, the update refers to a 12.x version).

As for the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack - it seems to be related to
Office 2007. I never ran such a thing - never heard of it, never downloaded
it, never installed it. I did find three of the files referred to in the KB
937961 article (MSVCM80.DLL, MSVCP80.DLL, and MSVCR80.DLL) - mine are all
v8.0.50727.163 and the KB article refers to v8.0.50727.762.

I'm still being offered the Office 2007 SP1 high-priority update on my
all-XP installation; I've hidden it for now. If no further information
comes to light (anyone?), I will eventually back up my system and apply the
update to see what changes (and if it's not one of the above files I
probably won't be able to tell).
