How to Use Command-Line Switches When Installing Office 2000 SP-2The switches for Sp2upd.exe are the standard IExpress package switches. However, Ohotfix9.exe, contained in the Sp2upd.exe download, also has its own switches, which can be passed to Ohotfix9.exe through the IExpress package command line.
To create a verbose Windows Installer log file (with the default hotfix file name in the default OfficeHotfix folder), use the following command line:
SP2UPD.EXE /C:"OHOTFIX9.EXE /v"Note The Ohotfix9.exe detection log file, "OFFICE 2000 SR-1 HOTFIX(####).LOG", is created as well.
To apply the SP2 update in completely silent mode, use the following command line:
path\sp2upd.exe /q /c:"ohotfix9.exe /q /c"This command line is useful in circumstances where an administrator is pushing out the update by using a technology such as Systems Management Server or does not want users to have the ability to cancel the application of the update.
The other command-line switches for the Office 2000 SP-2 update include the following.
Switch Function ---------------------------------------------------------------------- /t Sets the title in the dialog box displayed when the SP-2 update is finished or when it is canceled. If you pass a title with spaces on the command line with Sp2upd.exe, use double quotation marks around the string. For example: <PATH>\SP2UPD.EXE /C:"OHOTFIX9.EXE /T ""MY NEW TITLE""" /q Quiet UI mode. Silent, with no user interface. If you want a completely silent installation, you must include /q for Sp2upd.exe, as in the following: <PATH>\SP2UPD.EXE /Q /C:"OHOTFIX9.EXE /Q" /r Reduced UI mode. You see the final "success" dialog box and any error messages. /c Extracts and copies the files in the IExpress package to the OfficeHotfix folder. This can be used in situations where the files are needed after a restart to complete patching. This must be passed through the IExpress command line. For example: SP2UPD.EXE /C:"OHOTFIX9.EXE /C /V"
How to Verify That the Update Is SuccessfulTo verify that the installation of the update was successful, view the version number displayed in the About dialog box in any of the Office programs. To do this, click About <program name> on the Help menu in any of the Office programs.
The following table lists the different version numbers for each of the Office programs.
Note The version numbers displayed in the About dialog box always contain SR-1 after Office 2000 SP-2 has been successfully applied.

Log Files Created During Office 2000 SP-2 InstallationAs with any post SR-1/SR-1a update, Office 2000 SP-2 creates log files in the \Temp\OfficeHotfix folder. The log files have names similar to the following:
OFFICE 2000 SR-1 HOTFIX(####).LOGwhere #### is a four-digit number starting at 0001. These numbers are incremented by 1 each time that you run a post-SR-1 update. The first log file is created by OHOTFIX9.EXE, and the second log file is created by the Windows Installer. These matching pairs of Setup and Windows Installer log files have the same number (####) in the log file names, so you can quickly pair them up.
OFFICE 2000 SR-1 HOTFIX(####)_MSIEXEC.LOG
Because Office 2000 SP-2 log file names are just like any post SR-1 update log file, it will not be readily apparent which log files belong to your SP-2 update installation. The most logical way to identify Office 2000 SP-2 log files is the number (####) in the log file names. The highest numbered pair belongs to the latest post SR-1 update installation, so if you run only Office 2000 SP-2, these are the correct log files. However, the definitive way to identify the SP-2 log files is to open the OHOTFIX9.EXE log file, OFFICE 2000 SR-1 HOTFIX(####).LOG, and look at the second line in the log file. By default, the OHOTFIX9.EXE log file contains the following string on the second line:
Command line: /c /t "Microsoft Office SP-2"
