In Windows Explorer, open Control Panel under My Computer, and then double-click Add/Remove Programs.
Double-click the System Files Update entry in the Add/Remove Program Properties dialog box.NOTE: If the System Files Update has been uninstalled or is not listed in the Add/Remove Program Properties dialog box, you must install the System Files Update before you continue with these steps. To install the System Files Update, follow these steps:

Open the \Files\OSP\1033 folder from the root of the Office source files location.
Right-click OSP.msi, and then click Install.
When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Yes. After the System Files Update is installed, go back to step 5 and continue.
In the Maintenance Mode Options dialog box, click Repair System Files Update, and then click Next.

When the repair of the System Files Update finishes, repair your Office installation by using either the Repair Office button in Maintenance Mode Setup or Detect and Repair on the Help menu in any Office program.
