Office 2000



Has anyone encountered the Office 2000 SR-1 upgrade problem.
Here is what I mean: If you have a copy office 2000 and you try to use the new nifty to update your office suite to SR-1, it will actually check your cd-key and if it is not valid, it will actually make your office inoperable, it won’t work.
there might be something that can be done to the registry, I do not know

Any suggestions


Don’t use their update site, but download the “standalone”-updater.
Try the links for administators.
Microsoft (almost?) always provides downloadable updaters because companies just can’t download it for every single computer.
