    Office Web Components Update not available (XP)

    Following the excellent advice in WOW, I am trying to upgrade my Office XP installation to SP-1. However, when I try to download the OWC Update, I get "This download is temporarily unavailable. Thank you for your patience. "

    Is this new, or is it something known?

    It works - click Office XP Update: Service Pack 1 (SP-1)
    or download now from http://download.microsoft.com/download/off...n-us/oxpsp1.exe

    I would recommend save it to the disk and burn onto CD for possible use in the future.

    He's talking about the Office Web Controls not SP1.
    http://office.microsoft.com/downloads/2002/owc10.aspx i believe they were removed for security reasons and should be back shortly. One of the more recent exploits used the OWC.

    Muchas gracias. I'll labor on sans SP-1 until the OWC update is available again.
