    Office 2000 SP Update Problem (Win 98SE)

    A friend had run out of space in his 2 GB HD so I added a 8GB HD and unistalled Office 2000 Pro then re-installed to the new HD. Then installed SP1 with no problems. But when I tried to install SP3 the update window showed updatinng Microsoft Office Professional SP1 Disk 2 and at the authentication step asked for a file called "data2.msi" . Of course the normal authentication request is for "data1.msi" - and the original CD does not include any file "data2.msi" . Soo the upgrade was rejected.

    Please would someone tell me what has happened and how to install the Office 2000 SP3.

    A quick google search suggests that this file was on the second Office 2000 Professional disk - does your original Office 2000 Pro kit contain two disks? Have you looked on both?

    Errr! Never thought of that! Yes - his kit does include two disks (mine does not so that threw me I guess) - I will go back and try again.

    Thank you very much.
