Word and Excel security updates (Office 2000)
I downloaded the security updates for the (Flaw in Word Fields and Excel External Updates Could
Lead to Information Disclosure (Q330008)) for both Office 2000 and Office XP.
I am running Office XP Service Pack 2.
I downloaded the administrative installs for both Word, Excel 2000 and Word, and Excel 2002(XP).
When I first attempted to install the Office XP admin update to a Novell 5.1 server running this from a XP workstation I received this error.
"The installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and you can access it, or contact
the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package.".
I found out that Office XP comes with Windows Installer 1.10. Windows XP comes with Windows Installer 2.0. Ok version conflict right?
So I looked for the all the Installer exes that didn't have the same version number on both my hard drive and my network install.
I deleted and replaced them with the 2.0 version. Viola it worked...at least for Office XP.
Now I try to run this on another Novell server and get the same error. I did download the Installer patch from Install Shield (see post 188560) but this did not resolve the issue.
Any gems to help me in my goose chase would be helpful.
