WSUS Admins: New Revision of Office 2003 SP2 to be published this eve.

Discussion in 'Update Services' started by Bobbie Harder \(MSFT\), Oct 21, 2005.

  1. WSUS Admin update - A new (2nd) revision will be published for the Office
    2003 SP2. In the previous update release of Office 2003 SP2, some
    AutoUpdate and Microsoft Update customers experienced installation failures,
    in most cases due to a damaged Local Installation Source, which in some
    cases is required for the SP2 installation. Because user interaction is
    necessary to resolve this problem, we have decided not to distribute Office
    2003 SP2 to users whose AutoUpdate client connects to Microsoft Update. We
    have also attempted to mitigate the problem on Microsoft Update by changing
    the manner in which updates are delivered. While these revisions will
    appear to WSUS Administrators, the SP2 update content in this revision has
    not changed. There is no need to retest this SP2 update revision, or
    reinstall this revision if the previous version was successfully installed.
    This information will also appear in the revision notes of the update.
