Updating Office Web Components

Typically, the Microsoft Office 2003 Web Components and the Microsoft Office XP Web Components are installed when Office 2003 is installed. If you installed the Web Components in this manner, they are updated by Office 2003 SP1 (MainSP1.msp), and no additional updates are required for the Web Components that are related to SP1.

If you installed the Web Components separately by using one of the following methods, the Web Components will not be updated by installing MainSP1.msp. You must take additional steps to update the Web Components.
  • If you ran ...\FILES\OWC10\Setup.exe from the Office 2003 installation CD, you must update the Web Components by applying OWC102003SP1.msp. This file is included with SP1.
  • If you ran ...\FILES\OWC11\Setup.exe from the Office 2003 installation CD, you must update the Web Components by applying OWC11SP1.msp. This file is included with SP1.
  • If you created an administrative installation point for the Web Components by running "Setup /a" from the OWC folder, and then you installed the Web Components from the administrative installation point, you must update the Web Components by applying the appropriate Windows Installer Package that is included with SP1 (OWC11SP1.msp or OWC102003SP1.msp).
  • If you downloaded and installed the Web Components from the following Office Update Web site, you must update the Web Components by downloading the latest version of the Web Components.
    http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/maincatalog.aspx
  • If you installed the Web Components while visiting a Web site, you must update the Web Components by downloading the latest version of the Web Components.

    Note When you visit a Web site that uses the Web Components, you may be prompted to install the Web Components on your computer.
