Unable to apply MS03-037 to the administrative installation point

Hello All,

We are trying to apply the XP Administrative of patch MS03-037 to XP
Administrative Installation Point, but are unable to. We d/l the patch from
http://www.microsoft.com/office/ork/xp/journ/oxp1001a.htm and following the
exact instruction.

The update runs successfully using the :

msiexec /a q:\path\to\xp.msi /p patch.msi SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE

And we also see the new vbe6.dll file on the Administrative Installation

But when we try to install the MSI package using "REINSTALL=ALL
REINSTALLMODE=vomus" msiexec switch, we get the Office XP installation but
NOT the updated vbe6.dll.

Note: The Administrative patch for Visio 2k2 pro/std works just fine. We are
just having issues with XP.

Anyone else experiencing the same issue? Any ideas on how to fix this

Administrator not administrator
5 replies , 10/23/2003, 4:07:33 PM
I am currently setting up a new SBS 2000 box remotely before I deploy it on our current SBS 2000 Domain. The new SBS 2000 box is identical in it;s functionality, but it has the all important RAID5 redundancy and has a better spec. I have installed SBS 2000, and I am now patching up the whole machine using Windows Update. I will also run SP1a for SBS 2000. What I want to do now is make the Administrator user not Administrator, but to set up a new user that will be Administrator. This is for security, as I know that a lot of people do this, as Administrator as a Username is 50% of the way of cracking the password anyway. How is this done? Do I make a new user in AD on the new SBS and assign the same "Member Of" components to this user and then disable the user "Administrator"? I can then log the server on as this new Administrator knowing that the Username is not Administrator. Am I going along the right tracks...I need advice!! Thanks.

Office 11.5 Update Require Administrator Privileges
5 replies , 7/30/2008, 12:54:13 PM
Version: 2004 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel Whenever I try to install the latest Office 2004 update, the application says it needs administrator or higher privileges; BEFORE even asking me to put in a password. I have tried all of the following: - Using Microsoft AutoUpdate (this doesn't even present an error dialogue; I click Install Update, and the program does...nothing) - Installing from two different updates downloaded manually (English and Italian). - Installing using two different preexisting administrator users. - Installing using a brand new administrator - Installing using the root user. When a program says that root doesn't have permission to do something, we know there is a problem here. This was a brand new install of Office 2004 also; I'm not certain which version but I doubt it would be much newer than 11.3. Thanks.

After many days of trial and error I have successfully updated my AIP to SP1 and applied the Outllok Junk Email Filters. I am posting some general guidelines and a copy of my batch file that I created to get the job done. 1) You will need to extract the MSP files from the EXE. To accomplish this open a command prompt and cd to the directory containing the update.exe, then execute this command : office2003-kb873362-fullfile-enu.exe /t:C:\TEMPDIR /c (If your update happens to be different change the name of the exe) You'll be prompted to accept the license agreement. After clicking yes the MSPs will be unpacked to the specified directory, in this case C:\TEMPDIR. From that point you can either use C:\TEMPDIR as your location for the updates or move them elsewhere. Now you can use my batch file as a template to begin the update. Make sure you back up your current AIP (I just copied it to a new directory on the computer we use for the AIP). Start of adminupdate.bat below: : ---- Created By Norman V. Bauer : ---- : ---- This batch file is designed to be as reusable as possible when updating an : ---- Administrative Installation Point. I also add the update of : ---- Outlook Junk email filters to each MSI after it is updated. Of course you will : ---- need to change the variables to your situation, and update the MSI (PRO11, STD11) : ---- to suite your Office version. Feel free to modify and redistribute this file as : ---- you see fit.

User As Local Administrator on Laptop
2 replies , 9/8/2004, 3:48:18 PM
Hello, SBS2K, WinXP. I have a user that I set up with a domain profile on the SBS. He logs into his laptop both in the office and on the road. He is not able to do some things on the laptop, such as defrag, because he does not have the privileges. I wanted to allow him to be part of the Administrators group on his local PC, but when I went into the Local Users and Groups on the laptop, his profile is not there. I assume it is because he has a domain account and logs into it, not the local PC. That said, how can I make him part of the Administrators group only on his PC. I looked in Member Of tab of his domain account via Active Directory, but didn't see anything. Is this something that has to be set via Group Policy? Also, after I make these changes, how can I get his profile to update? He is currently out of the office and will be for a few more days. He does have the VPN connection to the network set up. Can I do something like with GPO where you connect through the VPN and run GPUpdate? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Chris

Hello, When installing OfficeXP from CD, it seems you have to apply SP1 and then SP2, and than 3 more fixes. It is time consuming. I am trying to create an administrative installation point for Office XP w/ Frontpage with SP1, SP2, and other patches. At following site, MS outlined the procedures of creating an administrative installation point and how to apply SP1 to it. http://www.microsoft.com/office/ork/xp/journ/Oxpsp1.htm#Oxp sp1_4 At the second link listed below, is the procedure of applying SP2 to a administrative installaion point. My questions are: Does this SP2 include all the fixes of SP1? If not, can I apply this SP2 to the previous administrative installation point (which is OfficeXP with SP1 applied)? Will this screw up the installation point? How do I apply addtional fixed to the second installation point? http://www.microsoft.com/office/ork/xp/journ/Oxpsp2a.htm#Ox psp2a_4 THanks!

Administrative Updates
1 replies , 2/23/2004, 11:45:53 PM
In Office XP, do I need to install Service Pack 1 to an administrative installation point before I install Service Pack 2 or does Service Pack 2 include all the updates? I know on the regular update you have to install both but I'm not sure about the Administrative update. Service Pack 2 is a bigger file than Service Pack 1 so I am thinking it includes both. In Office 2000, when I try to install Service Pack 3 to an administrative installation, it wants me to enter the product key. This doesn't seem right. Can anyone who has installed this shed any light on it? I have an administrative install of Office SR-1 with no service packs applied and trying to apply Service Pack 3. Here is the command line I used: msiexec /a D:\Off09Std\data1.msi /p D:\Off09-Upd\MAINSP3ff.msp SHORTFILENAMES=1 If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Unable to connect with SQL Web Data Administrator

Win XP Pro SP1 Cassini web server I'm attempting to connect to a web host's db server from my home computer. After putting in the log in credentials and clicking the log in button, sql web admin will attempt to connect, and nothing else happens. No errors, no timeouts or anything, it will just sit there trying to connect. I've verified the user/pass I'm using is correct. I've tried both the server host name and by IP address. I can ping the server and get a reply. I'm also behind a firewall, so I tried to forward a port through the firewall, and that didn't work either. Any thoughts?

Administrative install of office to SBS
4 replies , 8/4/2003, 9:59:19 AM
I am considering doing an administrative install of Office Professional to our SBS, to make deployment of Office easier. Am I right in thinking that to do this I should run setup with the /a switch on the SBS? I am assuming I do this for both disks. I know that it is not recommended to install Outlook on SBS. Presumably the administrative installation doesn't actually install the applications on the server, so this is OK? What is the benefit of using the administrative install, rather than simply creating a shared folder on SBS and copying the full contents of the 2 disks into the folder? Thanks for your help. Best regards, Andrew Stevens.

Office Administrative Installation Patching
6 replies , 3/16/2006, 9:44:27 PM
I went to the Windows and Office Update Websites and it showed that there were a couple of patches I needed. So I applied the patches to the Administrative installation point for Office XP and then redeployed Office. Afterwards I went back to the Office Update Website and saw that all of the updated had been successfully applied. However when I went to the Windows update website it still said that I was still missing the same updates for Office XP. Any ideas why the Office Update Website would say that I was current and the Windows Update Website would say that I am still missing those updates? Thank you,
