    Which Windows OS and which Office version?
    Office 2000 usually includes SP1 already.

    Is your software legit and registered?
    M$ have peculiar ways to prevent updates in certain cases.
    If you don't specifically need this SP1, leave it for the moment.
    Maybe someone else ?

    This is what M$ says:
    Installation instructions
    To install this update, do one of the following:

    * Use Office Update on the Office Online Web site (recommended). Office Update automatically detects Office and prompts you to install updates and service packs that bring Office programs up-to-date.

    * Install only Office 2003 SP1. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Download one of the two .exe files by using the links at the bottom of the page, and then save the file to your hard disk drive.
    o Office2003SP1-kb842532-client-enu.exe: You should download this file if you have access to your original product CD-ROM. You might need to provide the installation source during patch installation if you have previously updated your product.
    o Office2003SP1-kb842532-fullfile-enu.exe: Download this file if you do not have access to your original product CD-ROM or if you have experienced problems installing the Office2003SP1-kb842532-client-enu.exe file.
    2. It is recommended that you quit any programs you are running.

    3. In Windows Explorer, double-click the .exe file that you saved to your hard disk drive, and follow the instructions on the screen.

    Did you get the small web-update that needs to go online, or the full install?
