I have Win XP SP3 and Office 2003. Win Update tells me to download updates for Office 2007. Should I really updates for programs I don't have?

The title is my question



Windows Update and Microsoft Update offer updates for Office programs that you have not installed

What particular updates for Office 2007 are available to you? Are they updates for spectators, or compatibility packs etc.?

    I have read many topics and I can't seem to find the same problem I have.  I use Windows VISTA Home Premium (32 bit) for awhile and since June 30, 2009, I had bad download and install Windows updates.  I installed updates today, but I continue to be invited to run/install updates for Office XP and Office 2002 (currently about 9).  I used VISTA and Office 2007 for some time.  I believe that I have IE 7 and SP2.  I appreciate any help I can get to fix this.  Thanks in advance for your help.

  • Im running windows vista and office 2007. Many of my files are not open and I get the message "application not found" How can I reapir this?

    I recently had my computer repaired and Office 2007 has been reloaded. Now I get the message "not found when I try to open some files and application for a single file, «windows cannot find the file...»» ».

    If I change the name of the folder, some files were opened.

    In one case, the file opened under the new name [I added a letter], then later not open again - got the same message "application not found" and the Red Cross of death.

    Hi Martin,

    How you try to open the file? You are double clicking on the icon of the file to open or by using the menu file-> the option open in the application to open the file?

  • Installation___ Office 2003 and Office 2007

    I bought the edition of Office 2007 and installed, replacing the previous office 2003 pro that was on my desktop.  Office 2007 was purchased in a Home and Student edition full; not a upgreade to Office Pro 2003.

    Here's the problem:
    I decided that I want to install Office 2003 Pro on my netbook, but since it was purchased as an upgrade to the Office 2003 standard, which was never installed on the netbook, it will not be installed.  If I'm stuck?  I owned the Office 2003 legally and legally updated to the Office Pro 2003.  The problem is that I can't find the original disks of Office 2003 or product keys.

  • Reinstall VALID of COPIES of Vista Ultimate and Office 2007 without disc?

    I bought a PC with Vista Ultimate 64-bit online and valid valid Office 2007.  Both have been released online and accept updates.  My problem is that I don't have the original disks for the Vista or Office Enterprise 2007.

    I want to reformat the drive to clean it and reinstall Windows and Office.  How can I do this without disks?


    I gave you license rules that everything you said was: '-a copy of Vista Home Premium 64-bit for a different PC.

    you never said what type of license, it was: OEM or retail

    If it belongs to an another pre-installed vista PC and that he was NOT in the detail that you can NOT use

    as I've already advised

    "borrow a vista microsoft dvd.

    Make sure that you borrow the correct 32-bit or 64-bit microsoft dvd to your computer

    they contain all versions of vista

    It's the product key that determines which version of vista is installed.

  • Can I reinstall Windows XP and Office 2007 with just the numbers, product keys, and no disc.

    I have three old computers in my house.  All three begin to show serious signs of just getting old.  I was recommended to clean my computers.  I would like to reinstall my Windows OS and reinstall the software of my office.  I've lost my records over the years and moving, but still have my product key numbers that I kept in my office files.  Is it possible to reinstall it without a disk?


    I suggest you call the computer manufacturer and request for an XP CD will be sent to you. It should be for only a few dollars, like $10 or more because it is an OEM copy.

    For the Office CD, if it came with the computer you could probably try to ask them to send a copy as well, although I do not know if your computer manufacturer did.

    See you soon ~!
