Many times ms office service packs require files from the original cd. If that is the case you must have the original cd to install the service pack.

    if you have the original cd, you may have to re-install office xp first.

The link below will take you to Microsoft's website which will allow you to download service pack 3. Remind you that this is the full install for service pack 3 and will require service pack 2 already installed.

How can I download the update software


Hi there,

Yes, there is now a Service Pack 3 available.

Click on your START menu, and you should see a "Windows Update" icon (within the Start Menu).

Click the Windows Update icon and this will open a new browser, taking you to the Microsoft Update website.

From there, you will be able to follow the instructions and the site will search your pc for the appropriate updates. Click on the 'recommended' updates, which should install SP3 for you.

Good luck...

How to install microsoft office 2007???


First, you need to upgrade your XP Pro to Service Pack 3. XP with Service pack 2 is an end-of-life product which Microsoft no longer actively supports. After you install SP3, there will be about 90-100 more Windows updates to install. They should do so automatically.
Then once you have updated Windows and scanned for viruses (since you have only SP2, there is a good change that some malware may have made it onto the system.

Now all you have to do is insert the Office 2007 DVD into your computer and the installation process should begin.

Install windows xp3


I hope you mean SP3(Service Pack 3) on XP. Please follow these steps

Do one of the following:

  • If you downloaded SP3 from the website, to install it immediately, click Open or Run and follow the instructions on your screen. To install the program later, click Save and download the installation file to your computer. When you're ready to install the service pack, double-click the file.


  • If you're installing SP3 from the Service Pack 3 CD, insert the disc into your computer with your current version of Windows XP running, and the Software Update Installation Wizard should automatically appear. If this wizard doesn't appear, click Start, double-click My Computer, right-click your CD or DVD drive, and then click AutoPlay.


  1. On the Windows XP Service Pack 3 page, click Next.

  2. Follow the instructions that appear on your screen.

  3. After the installation is complete, click Finish to restart your computer.

  4. If you disabled your antivirus software, enable it again.

for more information check the Microsoft website..

I HAVE A 6 YEAR OLD DELL WITH SP 2. IS THAT THE LATEST UPGRADE?


Hi,

The latest service pake for XP is SP3, you can download and install it by performing a Microsoft Update by clicking on the the start menu and above where it says "All Programs" look for Windows/Microsoft Update.

Once SP3 is installed i recommend you perform another MS update to update SP3.

Ordinal 266 missing


Download Windows XP Service Pack 3 on another computer,
and burn to a CD, or copy to a USB memory-stick.

Take the CD or memory-stick to your computer, and Install SP3 on your computer.
Then, access http://windowsUpdate.microsoft.com to get all the post-SP3 updates.

This will install the newest DLL files, with all the correct ordinal-points (including #266).
