  • Office Update problem. MS mentioning MAC???

    I have MS Office 2003 (Win) installed and have earlier used MS Office update without problem but last week I had som computer problem (not virus) and since then I'm getting the error message "Sorry, the Office Update site does not support Office for Mac" at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/FX010380881033.aspx when tryning to use the Office update.

    I don't have a Mac version, what's wrong, do you have any solution?

    Thanks in advance.

    How are you reaching that URL? Did you bookmark it? The URL I reach when clicking through the 'check for updates' link on the office update page is: http://office.microsoft.com/officeup....aspx?lc=en-us

    The other reason might be your browser. I tried going to the site using firefox and MS sends me to a similar FX#############.aspx file only it complains about needing IE 5 or higher. Perhaps the browser you're using isn't supported by MS.

      LincFu

      When using your link http://office.microsoft.com/officeup....aspx?lc=en-us I'm redirected to the link i mentioned earlier and with the same error message.

      About the browser, I'm usin MSIE Version 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158 and i "belive" that browser is supported by MS.

      But anyhow, thanks for your effort.

        Well if it's any consolation, when I go there it tells me there's one update available. I'm still using Office 2000. However, when I try to download and install it it just fails. It looks like it doesn't even download the update.

        It might be a drive space issue. I'm seriously low on space on my C: drive. However, it says the update is 1096K and I know I have more space than that free. Silly automated MS updaters. Gimme a download link any day. I'll spend the extra 2ms it takes to double-click a setup.exe.
