How do you install Office SR-1 Administr

By seth.bokelman ·
I've got an Administration Install Point for Office 2000, I've downloaded the 143MB update for it, when I run the .exe file, It gives me a big .msp file, when I double click it, it tells me it can only update an administrative install, then exits. I've tried running it in the folder where the install point is. I've found no directions for this anywhere, and I'm starting to get really peeved. Can anyone tell me how you do this?

Go to the Microsoft site on downloads and search for SR1 Download and proceed from there it will take approximately 1 hour

Seth,

You cannot double click on the .msp file it is an Windows Installer file that has to be run from the command line with switches. I found the information at the following address, good luck.

How do you install Office SR-1 Administr

The link above is no longer current, but I recently did an O2K SR-1 upgrade on an admin installation point, and the commandline was:

msiexec /a <path_to_CD1>\data1.msi /p <path_to_new_msp_file>\data1.msp /ShortFileNames

* msiexec.exe is the windows installer,
* the /a switch gives path and file name of the office admin point main file (data1.msi)
* the /p switch gives path and file name of the upgrade msp file (data1.msp, IIRC)
* the -ShortFileNames is necessary because this is being done in a DOS-like environ.

Hope that helps.
