I agree. Its a mess. You'll need to open them in notepad.

This just looks like all the installation stuff such as all the error/installation messages you could get, not the actual one for an installation I have tried, but then I haven't got a clue what I'm looking for

Perhaps you could try this update location:
Update Center - Office, Office Servers, Related Products TechNet

Do you have automatic updates enabled?

If auto updates are enabled and should this not work for you, I think I would be tempted to contact the supplier for their advice.

Edit: also, more information here:
Apply Office 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

To be honest I am at a complete loss, everything else I have updates, but this 2010...no chance.

I am UK based and the software was purchased for my daughter while she was at Uni from Software4Students, it does say not to be sold outside Europe.

I am running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Thanks

There are no regional restrictions in Office 2010, though pricing can vary among regions hence the label not to be sold outside etc. If that were the case, OP couldnt have installed and activated Office.

Thanks for posting back, Paulks.

It would be interesting to hear what they eventually say, if you would share it with us.
