Installing Office Service Packs and Updates
Posted 2008-10-27 09:27

How does one go about installing service packs and updates?  I tried downloading the SP1 .exe and installing it as an "unsupported" application but this didn't work.  Same if I just run the .exe.  I get a dialog "The installation of this package failed."

And along a similar vein, I would like to simply be able to install updates via rather than needing to download/install individual patches.  However, my IE menubar is black so I can't enable cookies or install any sort of ActiveX controls (insalled directly rather than downloading IE6 from is apparently a registry hack to resolve this but you've got me as to how to edit registry in Wine...)

The SP1 update for Office 2007 doesn't install yet, we're working on that.

The black bar is caused by IE6 running from a non-win98 bottle. Install IE6 in a win98 bottle to get it going.

I've just "succeeded" installing the update to save a document as PDF. The installation went smoothly, but it doesn't work. The procedure works fine, but when you press the Save button, a message pops up saying "The file wasn't saved." But maybe this is because I did a mistake installing it?

I've used the same bottle -----(XP) I used to install the Office Enterprise 2007 in CrossOver Professional Linux 7.1

I've had the same results (failure) installing SP 1 & SP 2, even under CrossOver 8.0.0.  There's a separate app entry for Office 2007 SP 1.  I've posted there as well -- no explanation yet, but perhaps one will come.
