Office XP Installer Patch

I am unable to install any Office XP updates due to an error message that states an installer patch cannot be found. Does anyone know a remedy for this problem?

I am running XP pro with all available patches and critical updates.

Thanks for your contribution Chegs. Unfortunately I still get the same problem. Just to clarify an error also occurs when I search for updates. I am using all genuine Microsft software and I have no problems updating the operating system. The same Office XP software is loaded onto my laptop and that updates wih no problems.

Thanks for that link, I am sure this is my problem. Any ideas how I can apply the update to Windows XP pro as all the advice deals with applying the installer patch to earlier versions of Windows.

Yes you are correct - XP should already have that installer!

No luck with the registry changes and at this stage I do not fancy an installation of the OS over my current one.
Thanks again for your help I will now close the thread.
