Operating System Vista Home Premium SP1
I have recently reinstalled MS Office 2003 after a total system wipeout.
The installation went fine and it works.
I have down loaded Office 2003 SP3 and each time I attempt to install the update it fails giving the error code 51E.
I have tried to follow other instructions for fixing this error but to no avail. For example locate file config.MSI and change the attributes to R/W. I can not find this file.
I have a similar problem with an update for Adobe Acrobat reader 7. Because Vista has compatibility problems with this version I have down loaded version 9 (as recommended by Vista) but its installation also fails with the internal error code 2203.
Previously (before the wipeout) the updates from both these programs installed well.
Even though I have been operating computers for some years now I am still a novice when it comes to fixing problems such as these. Any step by step help would be appreciated.
