    Installer v2 Problem w/Office ? (W2K; O2K SR1)

    I recently updated the microsoft installer to v2 so I could install Office 2K clip_gallery/word/excel patches.

    The clip gallery patch went OK.

    The excel and word patches fail. For excel the error message is:

    Error 1321: The Installer has insufficient privileges to
    modify this file: D:PFilesMSOfficeOfficeEXCEL.EXE

    (D: is my CD-ROM drive)

    Anyone have any ideas as to what's wrong ?

    (I've poked around using Google; there's at least one post of the exact same problem but I don't
    see any posts with a solution/workaround/...)

    Re: Installer v2 Problem w/Office ? (W2K; O2K SR1)

    Have you tried doing a reinstall of Office before you try to apply the hot patch? The error may be because the original install of Office was done under a different version of the Windows installer. A reinstall should fix that, but please let us know either way.
