Hi,

On my XP machine I was able to use the Office Update tool to download Office 2000 updates. However, Microsoft don't allow you to do this with Windows Vista (for some reason), so I have to download them manually.

My question is - as there are 2 pages of updates I could download, do I have any way of identifying the ones I need?

For example, there's a SP2 download, but also a SP3 download. Can I assume that the SP3 download includes all the fixes that were in SP2?

This is such a pain, as I will never know if I have installed them correctly as they will always appear in the "Manual Download" list!, unlike when I could use the Office update tool!

Office 2000 Service Packs are not cumulative. Therefore install SP1, then SP2, then SP3.

Hi,

This is the problem I am having - Office 2000 updates are not automatically installed with Windows Update when you're using Vista. They were in XP though.

Thanks for the advice about the service packs, I will give it a try.
