    Office 2000 SR1 (2000)

    What is the word on SR1 for Office 2000?

    I have had several program with Office after installation and have reverted to Office 2000 fresh installation.

    Should SR1 be avoided or are there some hints or secrets?

    Thanks - Calvin

    SR1 (or SR1a) is highly recommended. Avoid SP2 because of draconian "Outlook e-Mail Security Update". Install separate updates instead (from http://office.microsoft.com). Here there are:
    SR-1a Security Update
    Access 2000: Updated Version of Microsoft Jet 4.0
    Access 2000 SR-1 and SQL Server 2000 Readiness Update
    Excel/PowerPoint 2000 SR-1 Update: HTML Script Vulnerability
    Clip Art Buffer Overrun Vulnerability Patch for Office 2000
    Outlook 2000 Collaboration Data Objects (CDO) Update: Security
    Office 2000 SR-1 Update: Web Client Security
    HTML Help Version 1.3 Update
    Word 2000 Update: Proofing Tools Hyphenation
    Office 2000 ODBC Driver Vulnerability Security Update (08-Mar-2000)
    Outlook 2000 SR-1 Update: Java Permissions Security
    Office 2000 Speller Update
    Office 2000 SR-1/Windows 2000 Utility: Registry Repair
    Office 2000 Security Update: HTML Data
    Updated 128-Bit Encryption Provider for Outlook 2000 SR-1
    The Outlook 2000 SR-1 Update: View Control Security
    PowerPoint 2000 SR-1 Update: Parsing Vulnerability

    Office 2000 Security Update: UA Control Vulnerability
    Word 2000 Security Update: Macro Vulnerability
    Word 2000 SR-1 Mail Command Security Update
    Word 2000 Update: Mail Merge Security
    XL2000 Update for the Excel 2000 SR-1 REGISTER.ID Function Vulnerability

    Are these all updates to SR1 or just 2000? If 2000, which ones do I need if I already have SR1? I find this totally confusing. Thanks for your clarifications.

    Sorry about this mess - sometimes it's a puzzle for me also. I'll try to make it straight.

    1. Install Office 2000 (non-SR1) and/or Office 2000 Disc 2
    2. If necessary, install Front Page, PhotoDraw, Project 2000, Visio 2000.
    3. Apply SR-1 (SR-1a) patch for Office 2000 and separate SR1 patches for Project and Visio (if applicable). I encountered problems patching PhotoDraw (it also depends is it version 1 or 2).
    4. If you don't want to install "draconian" Outlook e-Mail Security patch, install ALL patches from the list in my previous post. You can also use Office Update website (http://office.microsoft.com and click Product Updates or Update Your Software, then choose everything from the list except SP-2 and Outlook e-Mail Security Update). If it is not a case, or you don't use Outlook 2000, apply SP-2 Patch instead.
    5. After SP-2, install updates:
    Access 2000 and SQL Server 2000 Readiness Update (ACCSQL.EXE)
    Web Client Security Update (FPWEC.EXE)
    HTML Help Version 1.3 Update (HHUPD.EXE)
    Parsing Vulnerability Update: 1/26/2001 (PPT2KSEC.EXE)
    UA Control Vulnerability Update (UACTLSEC.EXE)
    Word 2000 Security Update: Macro Vulnerability (WD2KMSEC.EXE)

    Who can say keep Office up to date isn't easy?

    Re: Office 2000 SR1 (2000)

    I didn't mean to imply that YOUR post was confusing, but since Microsoft makes it so difficult to keep things straight, it is easy to see why I was confused. Thanks for your clarifying notes. After installing Word SR1, I did use the office update feature to install the applicable security updates. That was pretty simple since I don't have the rest of Office 2000. But if I did, I certainly would NOT have applied SP2 with the Outlook email limitations.

    Thanks again,

    John
