    Problem with New Template Security Patch

    I tried to install the new Word97 RTF Template Macro Patch -- this one: <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS01-028.asp>http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...in/MS01-028.asp</A>

    ... and I could not! I have installed every patch to Word97 possible, so I tried this one as well. It stops installing and tells me to look at C:/Windows/Temp for a file called offqfe.log. That file contains the following message:
    __________________________

    Office 97 Hotfix Installer: version 1.0.0.9.
    Running from C:WINDOWSTEMPIXP000.TMPOHFINST.EXE.

    wrd6ex32.cnv: not properly installed in this computer.
    Restoring initial state.
    _________________________

    That file *is* on my computer. It is in this folder:
    C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedTEXTCONV. It is the "Word 6.0/95 Export Converter" (file version 98060200) from "Microsoft Document Converters" version 8.0. It is about 1.04MB.

    What is wrong? Do I need to replace that file? Am I the only one with this problem? Thanks.

    Have you tried renaming (or deleting if you feel brave) the .cnv file and reinstalling the patch. If the file won't delete check it's file attributes -- make sure it's not set to read/only.
