    Where is Office XP SP1 file?

    I downloaded Office XP SP1 with Win ME but it was not installed. I know that SP1 is still on my hard drive, but where? I have installed Windows XP (clean) and I would like to manually install SP1 as suggested in WOW #7.03.

    Well, the obvious question is where did you download it to?
    (How do you know it's there if you can't find it?)
    Did you download it using ME then upgrade to XP?
    If it was a 'clean' install, did you reformat your hard drive?
    Have you tried searching for oxpsp1*.exe on your hard drive?

    1. I used the MS Office Update which didn't indicate where it was loading, then when it started to install it failed.
    2. After installing XP I went to MS Update again and tried to download SP1 and was informed that I already had it (under Win ME).
    3. I did reformat but I have saved all my old files. I have both ME and XP available.
    4. No, but I will look for it.
    Thanks Leif

    It sounds like your system believes SP1 has been installed, so I can't believe it was a totally clean install.
    You say you saved all your old files - have you restored any of them? Or were they already on your hard disk somewhere?

    From your answer to #1, it sounds like you were trying to install from the MS site, as opposed to downloading the file and running it locally.
    Go to OFFXP: Overview of the Office XP Service Pack 1 (Q307843) and download (save) oxpsp1.exe from the supplied link, then try running it from Add/Remove Programs in your Control Panel.
    If that doesn't work, I would suggest uninstalling Office XP completely, re-installing then trying again.
