How to update a modified Microsoft Office package
Authored by: DavidB2 on Aug 16, '08 10:10:16AM

Sorry for my obtuseness--I hadn't read the original post carefully. I hadn't copied the Office 2008 12.1.2 Update.mpkg to the Desktop before trying to modifying it. When I did so, I had no problem.

The original hint, to modify <package_updatable> worked fine. When I tried modifying <office_updatable>, though, Word would open and then immediately close. (Excel and PowerPoint opened okay though.)

So, thank you to the original poster for this time-saving hint.
