    Problem with the new MS Patch (2000 SP2)

    I'm running Office 2000 SP2 and I'm trying to apply the new Excel/Powerpoint patches.

    I'm getting Error 1328: Error applying patch to C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeEXCEL.EXE. It has probably been updated by other means, and can no longer be modified by this patch. For more information, contact your patch vendor.

    The PowerPoint patch gives me the same error except it says POWERPNT.EXE - obviously.

    Anyone else having problems with this patch?

    Found the problem.

    2 problems:

    1. If you install from an administrative install, you need the administrative update.

    2. To use the administrative update you need to be using a higher version of Windows Installer. After 50 minutes on the phone to Microsoft, I suggested they update the page in their ORK to say that it requires at least installer 1.11, because I was on the 1.10 that comes with SR-1 until I upgraded (to 2.00 - may as well get the latest)
