Office 2003 SP3 failing while using auto-updates

By jamesisin ·
I am willing to deploy this service pack out across the various networks I support, but I have machines failing the auto-update process left and right.

Even if I manually visit the update will tend to fail.

However, if I manually download the SP3 installer and then manually run that installer on each local machine the update succeeds.

Is anyone else seeing this kind of behaviour? Is there a forum out there where this is being discussed?

Since it is auto-updates which fails, there is no error dialog which appears. Even when you manually run auto-updates it merely shows you a list of the updates which failed.

I'm seeing this same issue with a number of the current service packs (Office 2003 sp3, Visio 2003 sp3, and Project 2003 sp3).

As I said, I am able to manually download the installer(s) and then run that installer just fine.
