    Office 2007 update failed

    We have Office 2007 SP2 on Windows Server 2003. When Windows update attempts to install Office 2007 service pack SP3, it keeps failing, with error code 0x686, but we cannot find information on this. Can anyone help with information on the cause and cure?

    Have you tried downloading the full SP from Office 2007 SP3?

    Thanks for your reply. I tried looking for a stand-alone update file but couldn't find it.
