    I tried this with sp1 and sp2 and it worked fine. You need to rename some of the files to do it on sp2 upgrade.

    Worked great for me for sp1, but what files did you rename for sp2 to work?

    Thanks!

    After you downloaded the sp2 and unpacked it, then rename these files:

    msiexec /p c:\office\MAINSP1_Admin.msp /a c:\office\proplus.msi SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb /L* c:\office\sp1Log.log

    to:

    msiexec /p c:\office\MAINSP2ff.msp /a c:\office\proplus.msi SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb /L* c:\office\sp2Log.log

    and

    msiexec /p c:\office\OWC10SP1_Admin.msp /a c:\office\owc10.msi SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb /L* c:\office\owc10.log

    msiexec /p c:\office\Owc10SP2ff.msp /a c:\office\owc10.msi SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb /L* c:\office\owc10.log

    remember to change to the directory to where you uninstalled sp1/sp2

    that's it! :laugh:
