Office 2003 latest service pack

Q: Office 2003 latest service pack

I have office 2003 installed in PC. If I try to open an office file created in Office 2007 in another PC, system failed to recognize it. Is there any service pack available for office 2003 for upgrading it?

Preferred Solution: Office 2003 latest service pack

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

You can always manually install the update...no one has to use Microsoft update for such, MS update is just a convenience.http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=enLouis

Automatic updated keeps badgering me to install Office 2003 Service Pack 2

Numerous attempts to install fails. All previous updates to MS Office and Windows have been install successfully. It's only SP2 that has caused a problem.

Here is the description:

Operating System: Windows XP Professional
Office: MS Office 2003 Basic (Word, Excel, Outlook)
MS FrontPage 2003
MS Access 2000
MS PowerPoint 2000

(I have the original CDs and product keys - so that is not the problem.)

I did the following:

Attempts to install from Auto Update fails.

Downloaded and installed Windows Installer (3.1.4000.2435) and attempted to install SP2 again. It failed.

Downloaded the following file from the Microsoft Web site: Office2003SP2-KB887616-Client-ENU.exe (50,536KB)and again attempted to install. The install proceedes and asks for the Office 2003 Basic CD and after a time bubbling away asks for the FrontPage 2003 CD. Shortly afterwords the message: "The Update Cannot Be Installed" is displayed.

Downloaded the following file from the Microsoft Web site: Office2003SP2-KB887616-FullFile-ENU.exe (104,293KB) and again attempted to install. This install bombs out very quickly with the message: "The Update Cannot Be Installed".

Don't know what to do next.

I've never had this problem before with updates, and I'm sure other forum users have or are experiencing the same problem.

Many thanks,

Could this be a firewall issue?

Do you have SP2 installed in Windows? (Windows SP2 includes a firewall). To check: Start > right click on My Computer > Properties

Under Microsoft Windows Professional and version number it will say SP2 if you do have it installed. If so:

Disable your firewall and try again.

Start > Control Panel > Security Center

Scroll down and click on Windows Firewall. Turn off.

Funny, I just downloaded and installed this very update this morning and had no problems. I even did it without the using the original Office 2003 disks. And I did it with my firewall enabled. So, perhaps the firewall is not the issue, but it worth a try.

That reminds me: When I was downloading the Office Update, I noticed a note on the right side of the webpage that said a certain update had to be installed BEFORE the Office SP2 update will install. Perhaps this is the issue? Go back to the update page and look at the right hand column for that link for more info.

Hope these ideas help.

I was wondering if anyone knew when the Office 2003 Service Pack 3 will be available on CD? I found one page at Microsoft downloads that implied that the CD was available, but when I followed the link to this page it only says that the CD will be available soon.

The 117 mb download is too big for my slow dial up connection. I need the CD.

OK Friends, bear with me as I try to explain the issues I'm having with my Windows Automatic Update.

I'm running an eMachine purchased in 2003 and have a cable modem.

I have Office XP installed, at least that's what I see when I launch Word, Excel, Publisher, etc. however when I click ABOUT, all the programs in office say 2003, is this normal?

Whenever Word launches, I get the following error:
The little blue box says: MICROSOFT VISUAL BASIC
The message says: Compile Error in Hidden Module: AutoExec
I click OK and the program seems to perform as expected. When I close Word, I get exact same error message. I click OK and Word closes.

If I run Excel:
The little blue box says: MICROSOFT VISUAL BASIC
The message says: Compile Error in Hidden Module: AutoExecNew
I click OK and the program seems to perform as expected. When I close Excel:
The little blue box says: MICROSOFT VISUAL BASIC
The message says: Compile Error in Hidden Module: DistMon. I click OK and Word closes.

And periodically Windows automatically checks for Updates as I recall choosing that option, however, the only item it seems to find to tell me to download is the Office 2003 Service Pack (1 or 2) after it tries to go through the install process I always get an error message stating the TASK WAS NOT COMPLETED.

I'm sure there's a simple solution that one of your Gurus already knows and can talk me through it. Just let me know and as always, you're help is greatly appre... Read more

A:Office 2003 Service Pack Issues

The error is usually solved by following the MS link instructions below

But its odd, as Office XP is Office 2002, not Office 2003.

Cannot explain that one...
What did you actually buy (as Office is not part of Windows, is purchased separately but could have been purchased at the same time as the PC)?

You can read about and download it from here.

If you're still using Windows Installer 3.0, you'll need to upgrade to Windows Installer 3.1 first. You can download it from here.

(If I recall correctly, you'll need to insert the Office 2003 CD during the upgrade process, unless you're fortunate to still have the "Office setup files" saved in the Disk Cleanup list and haven't deleted them. If you don't have either, I don't believe the upgrade process will complete successfully)

I've been trying for at least a month to get the Office 2003 service pack 2 to install, and it keeps reporting failure over and over again, with the same code: 0x80070663

HOWEVER, a search on the Microsoft site and Google shows nothing but a lot of other people with my same error code - and nothing else! I can't even find an explanation at the Microsoft site for what this means (though I do find other error code explanations).

Does anyone have any idea what this code means, and how to get the service pack to finally install?

I just purchased a new Lenovo laptop. Because I wanted MS Office Picture Manager I purchased a MS Office Professional Edition 2003 that had never been used. I loaded the 2003 version but every time I use it I'm asked to accept the end-user license. How do I get the software to recognize that I have done that and do not need to do it again.
I also have a problem when I attempt to open MS Office 2003 as it gives me a popup relating to Office 365 which I do not want. I checked the programs that are listed and it appears there is an Office 365 Icon. Can I safely do an uninstall for that and would that then allow me to open 2003 without that annoying 365 popup?

A:MS Office 2003 v Latest Version

Yes chances are that your new machine has an evaluation copy of Office 365. You can choose to uninstall it, but Office 2003 has no official support on Windows 8 or 8.1 so you are gambling if you choose to stay with it. Also all support of Office 2003 ended last April along with Windows XP. You may be able to use it for a bit, but if an update breaks it Microsoft will not help you in any way (just a friendly warning)
Frankly there are way better programs these days than the old MS Picture Manager.

I'm trying to update Ofc XP, SP1...

It updated fine on one of my home PCs, asking for the CD, and for an .msi, specifically "proplus.msi". All went well... loaded just fine.

Unfortunately though, I cannot get it to install properly on my other PCs in the house. They are all networked together, all running the same version of Win XP/Ofc XP, loaded from the same CD. But, the others not only ask for the Proplus.msi, they also require a Proret.msi. I cannot locate the Proret.msi file on the CD or any PC in the house, including the one were the svc pack ran with no problem.

Does anyone know what this .msi does, why I don't have it, and where can I get it? Or at least, how can I get my updates to work?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I've got three workstation all the same build that are running Win2k SP3/Office2K SP3 that have developed the habit of launching the print dialog box in the background of some word doc's. So a user launches a word doc, click's print and the dialog box to select a printer is in the background. Then Word starts flashing because it knows the user can't see the printer box. The user has to click Word down in the taskbar to minimize and click OK to print the doc. For the most part things are cool but every once in a while Word generated a gpf (with no other info) and closes but the next launch works fine. Again this all started with the install of Office SP3.

Hi All,

I have a user who is using Win 7 and office 2003. She wishes to be able to open .xlsx files that are sent to her, so I installed the office compatibility pack.

However this does not seem to solve her problem, the machine in connected to a domain and the conversion process works fine on my account but on hers it does not ( even if I give her the same rights as me on the network and the PC)

I am assuming there must be some small security setting somewhere on the PC what would mean the conversion process works for me but not for her, but for the life of me I cannot find anything that would cause such an issue.

Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

I own a Dell that has Microsoft Office standard for XP. I go to college, so naturally after I installed office, I don't remember where I put the box with the installation CD in it. After updating my system, it said that it was recommended also to update office. I checked for updates, and it said I should install service pack 3. The Microsoft web site said there would be a possibility that I would need the CD, unless I downloaded the fullfile, which I did. When I tried to install it, it still needed the CD, so I cancelled. Now whenever i try to open excel, it wants to finish the instillation which it can't do without the CD. Can I fix this without my CD? any help would be appreciated.

A:Service pack 3 for Microsoft Office XP

This happened to me and kept asking for a the file Proplus.msi. Every time I put my CD in and pointed straight to the file and every time it refused to go any further. Then one day for no good or apparently good reason, Excel opened good as gold. I went to MS Help and they suggested my CD was damaged but I couldn't see any so I cleaned it with a gentle wipe and a little toothpaste (their recommendation) and while everything was running, I copied Proplus.msi to my hard disk in case it happened again. Service Pack 3 went through OK and I've had no problems since.

Keep trying to open Excel - it may do to you what it did to me but to could go in to Start>Help & Support>Tools>My Computer Information>Microsoft Software information and take a note of your Product Identification Number. Telephone or write to MS with that and so long as it's a legally held product, they'll ship you a replacement CD.

This morning when I booted up my old PC running Windows XP and MS Word 2003, I received an automatic update alert for: Security Update for Office 2003 (KB3203484).

Since this update alert arrived in the wake of the news of the Petya virus, and is for a really old program, I was suspicious, so I checked the MS website and found this:

Note To apply this security update, you must have the release version of Service Pack 3 for Microsoft Word Viewer 2003 installed on the computer.​
So I'm guessing that the update is legit. But I don't know if I have Service Pack 3 for Microsoft Word Viewer 2003 installed on my PC. I looked in the Windows Add/Remove Programs list, and don't see it listed there. But I'm wondering if it might be part of the Word 2003 installation, and if so, where would I look to see if I have it installed?

For those of you who use a legacy version of Microsoft Office (97-2003) either because you are happy with the version you have, can't afford an upgrade to a modern version of MS Office (2007+) or find the new modern MS Office too confusing to use, you should install the free MS Compatibility Converter from MS Office. This allows you to open up files created with newer versions of MS Office.

What is excellent is that MS is still releasing updates to Office as long as you have the converter installed along with a legacy version of Office installed. I have Office 2003 with the compatibility converter, and last month got an update for Office 2010. (Running Windows 7.)

Before you install the MS Compatibility Converter:

Go to Microsoft Update to get all patches for your computer marked "Critical" or "Important"
You will than need to manually install the latest service packs for your version of legacy office through Office updates. Only Office 2007-2010 updates will come through automatically through Windows Update.

I have let it run for hours and have tried several times. What could be causing this problem?

A:Can Update Windows Office Xp Service Pack 3

The service pack 3 for XP is a Beta version and is comprised of a collection of hotfixes that are all from Microsoft but some of them have not been tested and there is concern for this causing instability issues. Microsoft has a bad reputation for their Beta versions being left to the public to de-bug, in short if you use a Beta version you get what ever surprises comes with it.

Microsoft has quietly released the first service pack for Office 2013 and you can find the download links at the bottom of this post. The update comes in both x86 and x64 flavors and range in size from 643 or 774 MB depending on your install option.

This is the first major update to the Office platform since it has been released and should be a welcomed update for those who use the platform. With SP1 now released, we will be curious to see if more IT shops move to the platform as many large corporations have adopted the unofficial policy of ?wait until SP1? before deployment.

Like all service packs before it, the package contains a roll-up of all the previously released updates. Along with all of the previous updates, SP1 includes update to improve security, performance and stability.

A:Office 2013 service pack one released

"Microsoft has quietly released the first service pack for Office 2013" - I guess there's cause for concern when there is a service pack released. Gone are the days of looking forward to a service pack or much less an update for some added functionality... not when they're having trouble keeping up with fixing the holes they released it with.

I am running Windows 7. For some reason the list of updates includes an update for Office XP Service Pack 3. However, this update always fails. Why does Windows 7 include an update for Office XP. All the other updates install fine.

A:Office XP Service Pack 3 Update Failed

Thats because your computer is likely set up for Microsoft update rather than plain windows updates.

While Windows Update provides you with updates specifically for Windows, Microsoft Update expands the service to download and install updates for other Microsoft software, such as Microsoft Office and Windows Live. Automatic updating is a feature that allows you to set your PC to automatically download and install updates using either service, making it easy and convenient for you to keep your Windows PC current.

You can turn off office update listings by clicking on "Change settings" in the left panel on the Windows update page, then unchecking the box under the heading "Microsoft updates". Alternatively, you can just right click on the offered office update and hide it so it wont show up in the future.

My current laptop was purchased new last October, loaded with 8.1. I upgraded to 10 on the first day of its release, and ever since then I've been getting notifications for Office XP Service Pack 3. It has failed each time I try it. Windows suggests doing a web search for "Office XP Service Pack 3 - Error 0x80096004" for possible help, and I do find some results that MIGHT be helpful. But I can't understand why Windows 10 is trying to install an XP update on a machine that has never has XP on it.

Has anyone come across this issue?

We had one machine in a 2-machine cluster get a stop error last friday. The app support people helped me to shift all services over to the other server, but then I wanted to load balance again.

They told me I would have to install SP2 and all the updates on both before we could. So I did, and we restarted.

Then once he tried to activate the other server in the cluster, the failed one would not cooperate. They kept reporting duplicate IP addresses, and thus would not work.

So we put it back the way it was, and looked at the failed one. I could not access the network connections to config the interfaces and I could not uninstall programs. I booted into safe mode, and I can see the adapters, but I still cannot roll back the SP2 or uninstall programs. When I try to uninstall SP2 in safe mode, it tells me that there is a file missing. It doesn't specify which one. When I try to re-install SP2, it tells me there is a file missing. It doesn't specify which one.

When I try to uninstall SP2 in normal windows, it just hangs at inspecting configuration. Same w/re-install. I have tried uninstalling through the command prompt also. Same thing. If I stick my thumb drive in there, it hangs at installing that.

So there is something terribly wrong with this machine. Reinstalling windows from scratch is NOT an option right now because there is Oracle software and settings on here that the vendor will charge out the a$$ to reinstall.

Any ideas of what I can try? Besides wipi... Read more

Hi all.
I really need some help from you guys.
I've just re installed win XP and i have done all the automatic updates except SP2...(i didn't installed it on the 1st version of XP too). Now when I try to run an office 2003 application (Office was already installed when i re installed XP) it tells me an error message : "The apllication failed to initialize properly (0xc0150002). Click on OK to terminate the application". And when to try to uninstall it it gives me this : "Setup has detected an incomplete windows XP service pack installation on your comuter. Office will not run properly until this update has been completed". I have the same error message when I try to install Office 2003 from the CD...what can I do???

There are certian P/Gs that I can'tload from M/S because this P/g is (Quote) not fully installed. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

A:Solved: Office XP Service Pack 3--failure in installation

Go to the Microsoft office site http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/officeupdate/default.aspx and start the process over, somewhere along the way it should give you the choice of downloading additional files so that you do not have to have your office CD.
