  • Problem with Office 2003 SP1 installation

    Hello, i'm trying to install Service Pack 1 for Office 2003 on a Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition (Evaluation copy).

    But the installation is interrupted and i get the following message:
    The expected version of this product was not found on your system.

    I already have office 2003 installed and i dont know why i'm getting this message.

    Please help.

    Thanks in advance.

    I may be wrong but don't think you are able to install Service Packs on the MS Office Evaluation versions.

      Only the OS (Windows 2003 Enterprise) is an evaluation copy, the office 2003 is a full version.

        How are you updating Office? A downloaded Service Pack or through the Check for updates under help?

          I have downloaded the sp1 from the microsoft site (abt 70 mb). I tried to install it the same office installation on a different machine using Windows XP, and it works perfectly.

          Thanks again for any help.

            I'm not certain either, but I don't believe a SP will install on evaluation copies of any software. Especially if the OS is an eval edition.

            That may be the answer, since you were able to install the Office SP on an XP box.
