How to update a modified Microsoft Office package
Authored by: wschnaer on Aug 13, '08 10:36:49AM

I tried your method and it didn't work on Office 12.1.2. However, what did work was:

Open the file "office_updatable" in a text editor
Find the two lines reading:

if (status!=0):
sys.exit(-1)

put the pound sign (#) at the beginning of each line, thus transforming them into non-executing comments.

Save the file, pressing the "Overwrite" button when you are informed the file is protected.


Now, when I ran the installer, there were no problems.

Thanks! This extra step fixed it for me. I have Macaroni set to periodically remove extra language localizations.
