    When I´m applying Office updates in PC´s with Windows
    2000 and XP, the files STD.MSI and DATA1.MSI are
    requested. Where can I download these files so I can
    install the updates.

    Thanks for your help.

    You need to have the source disk of each original Office
    2000/XP in your CD-ROm drive(s). When applying ANY update
    to Office 2000/XP you MUST have the orginal CD that you
    used to first install Office 2000/XP onto your computer.
    Otherwise, the updates simply will NOT WORK and FAIL to
    UPDATE your PC configuration.

    Make sure Office CD 1 is in your CD-ROM drive when
    applying update. When it asks for the source disk....point
    the setup program to your CD-ROM drive..... the CD-ROM
    will start accessing files and then the update your
    downloaded will be applied to your system.

    It's kind of a great way to protect mass copying and
    pirated copies being ditributed. But it needs the original
    source files to preform the updates.

    drive before updating!!! Otherwise they will NEVER be
