RE: instal failed
Found it!

There is a log file C:\WINDOWS\WindowsUpdate.log that hints at the errors.

In addition, the Event Viewer "Application" view clearly states the exact
file/directory that had the problem. Look for Errors from source
MsiInstaller.

In my case it was a file/directory permissions problem. I added Everyone
FullControl to
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11
and all subdirectories & files, and all 4 failed Office updates installed
fine.
OF COURSE I THEN REMOVED Everyone PERMISSIONS !!!
