Windows 7: Cannot install Office 2007 update

Cannot install Office 2007 update

I purchased and have Office 2007 ultimate installed on my new windows 7 laptop and it runs fine.

Windows updates tells me there is an important "2007 Microsoft Office Suite Pack 2 (SP2)" to download. But 8 attempts to download and install fail with Error Code 8020000E.

How do I get around this?

Thanks. Jeff

My error again. Let me start again.
What I purchased and installed is indeed *Office 2007 ultimate* (not 2010 which does not exist!) I was confused because I purchased it online on Jan 16 2010 and the registration email I received started with something about 2010, but actually referred to my purchase of Office 2007 ultimate. I feel really stupid.

I installed it fine and it accepted the registration text I entered and it works fine. This is Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on a new laptop.

But: Windows Update tells me there is an important important update it calls:
"The 2007 Microsoft Office Suite Service Pack 2 (SP2)" and other W 7 updates. All updates install fine except for the 2007 Office Suite. It fails with an Error Code 8020000E.

UrbanBounca asked if I had installed any other updates. I checked my update history and see that I had previously installed many other Office 7 updates including "2007 MS Office Suite Pack 1 (SP1). All were successful except for this one that keeps failing and I do not know why or what to do about it.

Is there a phone number at Microsoft I can call ask why this is happening?

Thanks.

Have you tried restarting since install Office 2007 SP1? Also, you aren't wrong Office 2010 does exist. Its still in the beta stages though. I'm trying it out myself.

You might want to try un-installing Office 2007 run CCleaner clean out your reg and then do a fresh install and apply the updates after.

Yes, I have rebooted many times since then.

I finally found the Microsoft support site and sent them an email explaining the problem. It's apparently free and they say they will respond within 1 day. I'll wait for them to reply before trying uninstalling and re-installing the Office suite.

Hallo Anderson2; If your update download is corrupted this workaround will create a new (clean) download folder in Distibution Software and download the update from scratch again.

Note; this will clear your update history and windows update will search your computer for missing updates but it will not affect your already installed updates

You will still be able to still see installed updates by selecting Installed Updates in the bottom LH corner of windows upate control panel

update error 8020000E

Hope this is of some help

This error will occur if your volume name or guide is changed. have you recently changed volume label?..

renaming the software distribution folder will solve the issue.

Click Start, Choose Run.
In the Run box, type services.msc.
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
Click Stop.

Rename the "SoftwareDistribution" folder: a. Click Start, click Run, type
%systemroot%, and then click OK.
b. Right-click the SoftwareDistribution folder, and then click Rename.
c. Type SoftwareDistribution.old, and then press ENTER to rename this folder.

Click Start. Choose Run.
In the Run box, type services.msc.
Click OK.
Right-click the Automatic Updates service.
Click Start.

Let us know the result

(Below is what Microsoft support advised. I did Steps 1-4 with no results).

I appreciate your advice Delphin. I did not rename any volumes that I recall.

I ran services.msc but found no service named Automatic Updates service. This is W7. Could it have another name in W 7 64 bit?

I did find the SoftwareDistribution folder but did not do anything with it till I hear back from you. In case it makes an y difference, Windows updates has successfully installed many other updates as recently as earlier today. It is just the Office SP2 update that refuses to install even though many other earlier Office 2007 updates installed fine.

Thanks.
