I seem to be unable to download an update "Office XP Serv Pack 3". I get the following "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Enter an alternative path to a folder containing the installation package PUBMSI "
I am using Win 7 and have Office 2007 installed but that does not include Publisher so I installed Publisher 2002 from an old Office disk.
I can't get past the error message even if I put the old Office disk in the drive.
I cannot answer your question as to why the service pack won't install but if you look down the list on this page click here I can see nothing in it that addresses Publisher 2002 problems. Reference is made to just about every other module but not Publisher - so are you sure that you need it? The link does give some guidance on installing the service pack without the original Office disk - even though you have it. Have you tried running Publisher without the service pack installed? Is there a problem with Publisher without it?
