    Excel/Power Point Patch (Office XP)

    I am trying to find a way to run the Excel/Power Point patch dated 10-4 for Macro security without having to send an Office CD to each user. We did not use a server based image to load and we could use a shared CD-ROM but we are trying to avoid the network traffic. Thanks for your help.

    What that patches really look for is .mci file(s). Copy it from CD root to the server and point each workstation to it (I usually create a guest profile on the server with permission to read this folder only). You can keep it on the server - on the next update each workstation will look for this folder once again. Apply patches during off-hours to reduce traffic.
