Error message from the MS Office updater
Authored by: hayne on Aug 13, '08 07:37:03PM
By the way, the error message from the MS Office updater that I got was the following:
You cannot install Office 2008 12.1.2 Update on this volume. A version of the software required to install this update was not found on this volume.
The above error message can be taken as a sign that the procedure I outlined in the hint above might be useful - especially if you know that you have previously removed some language-specific files using Monolingual or similar utilities.

Be sure that you have installed the previous updater

I ought to have said that you should only apply this procedure if you are sure that (as explained by Microsoft's instructions) you have previously applied the 12.1.1 update to your MS Office install.
