Office XP Service Pack 3 Install Failure
error code 0x8024002D
Auto update informed me of an update downloaded - but failed to install,
asking for a Office XP Business CD it required. I don't have Business Office
software on my computer, so wondering why it's trying to update it.
Also, even with install failure of this update, now my long standing excel
spreadsheet files won't open; seem to be looking for this update.....
Help?

What products (Microsoft Office related) do you have installed?

RE: Office XP Service Pack 3 Install Failure
I had the same problem, and it turned out I had Word Viewer 2003 installed,
which was part of the updates. I uninstalled it, checked again at the Windows
update website, and instead of seven updates it said I was updated. Perhaps
you're having a similar problem?
