office1.cab

By aelara ·
I am trying to install SP1 for Microsoft Office XP and I seem to be getting an error message informing me that setup was unable to locate the office1.cab file. Setup subsequently exits. I've tried copying the contents of the installation C.D onto the HD and repeating the process but to no avail. I'am now at my wits end and still no closer to installing the service pack!

Im not sure why this is happening, perhaps you are attempting to apply the SP1 on a system that originally installed Office from the CD copied to the drive first.

But you can solve this problem 2 ways.
1. COmpletely remove Office XP |Restart|Re-install Office XP from the CD Rom |Apply service pack. (Be sure you have the correct SP1. MS released 2 versions; one for the client, and one for Administrative Office install source files on a server)
2. Create an Administrative Installation point (PRO.msi /a...follow prompts)| Apply the SP1 for Admin install points| run "msiexec /i=\\server\share\pro.msi /REINSTALL=ALL /REINSTALLMODE=VOMUS"

I hope this helps. I dont know if you are doing this in a corporate environment, or at home, and with which flavor of the product ie Professional, Professional Plus, etc. If not the info I listed may come in handy for another project. Good Luck
