    Recent Office updates (the last couple at least) have come in two forms,
    one fairly trimmed down, and a full one that removes need for access to
    the Office install media during the update process.
    Perhaps you are sending out the wrong one ??

    The patches i am attempting to install are not released as office updates an
    example is ms05-009, which is for buffer over runs. other examples include
    most of this months patches for win2k sp4 (esxcept 25 and 26).

    Cheers
