Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

Update could not be installed

Msg said following update could not be installed: ''Security update for Microsoft Office PowerPoint version 2003 (KB956500)''
I run Windows XP Media Center Edition, version 5.1 w/ Service Pack 3 connecting with Verizon FIOS at their 2nd highest speed.
I have not been able to find a way to clear this annoying message from the computer, or install the update. Also, any eMail attachment with .pps extension will not open, although the computer says I do have PowerPoint, and File Options shows PPS as a valid extension. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you and Merry Christmas! Frank

Hi kasibual

MS OFFICE POWERPOINT HOME AND STUDENT 2007 ACADEMIC LICENSE

You do not say where you obtained your MS Office PowerPoint Home & Student 2007 Academic Version. If this program originally came from a Microsoft Authorized or other legitimate source with the original installation disc and Product ID and was, when new, an unused, unregistered, unactivated, genuine version but you have either mislaid or damaged the original disc, then you could beg, borrow or buy any MS Office Home & Student 2007 Academic Version disc with which to re-install the program, using your original Product ID when a code is requested during the installation process. You could borrow a disc from a friend or an educational institution. You could go to a local repair centre with a comprehensive software library. You could buy a replacement disc on eBay.

http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/installation-and-activation-information-for-2007-microsoft-office-programs-HA010173340.aspx

If you obtained MS Office PowerPoint Home & Student 2007 Academic Version from a third party, you will have difficulty knowing whether it is genuine, unused, unactivated and unregistered.

If you were hoping to be able to download MS Office PowerPoint Home & Student 2007 Academic Version, then you should be aware that Product Full, genuine, licensed versions of Microsoft Products cannot usually be downloaded. Microsoft have withdrawn downloads and direct sales of MS Office 2007 applications, the only remaining support services being updates and security patches during Automatic Updates. If there is some obstacle to your installing , here are some constructive, useful, helpful, practical alternative options to consider instead. One option is to download MS Office 2010 Pro 60-Day Trial and install it, carefully following each step:

Go to: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/try


If you do not want to buy or cannot afford a full, licensed copy of MS Office PowerPoint Home & Student 2007 Academic Version and/or prefer to pursue the downloading option, consider the latest version of genuine, similar free comprehensive Office Suite applications - OpenOffice and LibreOffice- downloadable free, from their original source, at:

www.openoffice.org

http://www.libreoffice.org/

You can use OpenOffice and LibreOffice simultaneously with MS Office 2010 Pro 60-DayTrial. If you delete MS Office 2010 Pro 60-Day Trial, well before the 60 day expiry date, and Remove all components of it from Add or Remove Programs (or its equivalent in your Operating System) and Restart before downloading and installing it again, it is usually possible to enter into further 60 Day trial periods. If you are determined to continue using it but there is some insurmountable obstacle to your installing MS Office 2007, then you might have to purchase a full, genuine, unused and licensed copy of the software from a reputable, reliable supplier, such as Amazon:


http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_2_13?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=ms+publisher+2007&sprefix=MS+Publisher+#/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_18?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=ms+powerpoint+2007&sprefix=ms+powerpoint+2007&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Ams+powerpoint+2007

Online offers of Free Licences, Product keys or Downloads of MS Office products are probably almost universally either not genuine, illegal, unlicensed or pre-used licence versions, downloadable only from illicit download sites or sites that are masquerading non-existent MS Office products as camouflage for the marketing of other (often unrelated) software, products or services. Even if you do succeed in finding a Product ID or download site that seems to work for MS Office PowerPoint Home & Student 2007 Academic Version, you will still have to purchase a separate, genuine, unused Activation Code for the product before you can successfully install it, use it with confidence, register it, activate it and download and benefit from Updates and Security Patches for it from Microsoft.

I hope this helps.

OK, sounds like the problem is that the computer cannot get a valid IP address. In fact it sounds like you might have a IP address conflict on your network. Each IP address on a network segment must be unique.

Check if you are using DHCP.

  • Go to
  • Control Panel
  • Network connections
  • Locate the network connection you are using e.g. 'Local area connection' or perhaps 'Wireless connection'
  • Right click on the relevant network connection
  • Select 'Properties'
  • Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
  • Select Properties
Is your machine set to "Obtain an IP address automatically" (DHCP) or "Use the following IP address".
If its "Use the following IP address" then make sure no other machines are also using this IP address. You can try setting to 'automatic' but if you do, make sure that you note all details first, so you can revert back to the settings you currently have if you need to.
if its "Obtain an IP address automatically" then make sure no other machines have been manually set.

With regards to the microsoft update, then your best bet is to only select a small number of updates at a time, until you determine which update(s) is causing the failure. Once you know which update is the problem then you can troubleshoot the specific update.

Hope this helps

Hi! I don't know about your previous usage versions of MS Office on your system. I don't know about "genuine" concept over your present MS office 2003.

Mostly, for new system, office would available under trail version only, later it blocks.

Suppose if you tried to update present version to 2003, then there may be chances to loss of some files. At this point, you may get errors while accessing and at the same time, it may show you errors or starts for install process.

try to update your package with online update and with genuine key and have fine with office package
