Thread: office xp sp1 crashes




  1. #1

    Default

    At the office update website there is about 4 updates that I am capable of downloading. However, I can't use any of them without sp1. When I go to install sp1 its all fine and dandy until it gets to like the last square then it will give me an error message. When I hit cancel cause retry doesn't do anything. THe progress bar will proceed to count down back to 0 I guess its undoing what it already did. Does anyone else have this problem? Or is it just me.

    I cant say i have ever had any problems with it, sometime it wants a mapped drive (think it's u:), but it does not use it for anything. (all my use is in schools, so...)

    could be.......but that would mean that every version that I downloaded was corrupted, or the version my dad downloaded was corrupted. Or the one on microsoft's office update website itself! was corrupted. Then again I'm not sure.

    nah.......cd is fine.....what else do you think it could be? Where was the place that you got your file from? Can you possible give me the link to the exact mirror that you got yours from? I guess that'll show if its corupted or not :(

    Sorry, my network manager gave me my copy of the sp1, i can ask him, but he probably got it off the corprate download site.

    grrrrr...........I don't think I'll notice anything improvement anyway. I have no problems with office. However it did mention something about performance flaws. I can use some performance improvements. Sometimes it does take a good 10 seconds to load up word. Then again sometimes it takes 10 seconds to open up IE. Is this with all comps?
