  • Office XP

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new here and not sure where I should post this message. I have an administrative install point setup for Office XP Pro and have run into a problem with having to reinstall Office for every user that logs on to an individual machine after office has been installed I was wondering if anyone has had this happen and knows a way around it? It's a real pain when you have many users logging onto one system. Any help would really be appreciated.

      The problem is that I need office to be available to every user by installing it once. But I think I have since figured it out. The install point is published under our Staff accounts container and probably should be published under our Staff computer accounts folder, to make it available to everyone instead of per user. I'm in the process of testing that now. Thanks for your help!

        Office XP Pro was updated by CD with SP1, then SP2. When they came out with SP3 I attempted to update from update site. Either version would not install. I ordered the SP3 Cd and subsequently installed it and went back to the update site and downloaded and installed the next update. All appeared to be installed successfully. A month later I went back into office updates and it started to check for updates, @ 40% it kicked back that it couldn't check for updates because of a engine problem. I then attempted to have it check for already installed office updates and it once again halted saying that it couldn't check.
        "The Office Update site is unable to check for updates on this computer. This may be happening because of one of the following reasons:"
        All office applications are showing SP3 installed, but as stated I can no longer do any further updating from their site. I don't know if the problem was from the very last update installed, because I can't get in to see what number it was or what it fixed.
        Microsoft has been non responsive to my problem and requests for assistance. Any help or ideas would be appreciated, if you need any additional info please don't hesitate to contact me.
        Thank you in advance.

          also use the /a switch for an administrative install.
