Methods for installing the update on a computer that is running Visio 2002 SR-1 (for administrators only)

If you are an administrator, and you want to install this update on Visio 2002 SR-1, use one of the following methods, depending on your situation.

Method 1: Modify the OHotfix.ini file


Use this method if you are an administrator, and you use the Ohotfix.exe program to install updates. Manually modify the OHotfix.ini file to change the RequireAllProductsAtMinVersion=1 setting to RequireAllProductsAtMinVersion=0 and to change the MinProductVersion=10.2.5110 setting to MinProductVersion=. To use this method, you have to extract the .msp files from the executable (.exe) file of the update. For more information about how to extract the .msp files from the .exe file, see the "Administrative update" section.

To modify the OHotfix.ini file, follow these steps:
  1. Start Notepad, and then open the OHotfix.ini file.
  2. Locate the following line:
    RequireAllProductsAtMinVersion=1
  3. Change the line to the following:
    RequireAllProductsAtMinVersion=0
  4. Locate the following line:
    MinProductVersion=10.2.5110
  5. Change the line to the following:
    MinProductVersion=
  6. Save the OHotfix.ini file.
For more information about how to install updates by using the OHotfix.exe program, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ork2003/default.aspx


Method 2: Use the Msiexec.exe /p command line to install the update


Use this following method if you are an administrator, and you use the Msiexec.exe command to install updates. Do not use this method if you are updating an administrative image or if you are updating an administrative installation point.

Use the Msiexec.exe /p command line to install the .msp files that are required for Visio 2002. To use this method, you have to extract the .msp files from the executable (.exe) file of the update. For more information about how to extract the .msp files from the .exe file, see the "Administrative update" section.

The following is an example of the command lines that you can use to install this update by using the Msiexec.exe /p command:
Msiexec.exe /p Path\Visio2002-KB831932-GDI-FullFile-ENU.msp /qb- /L*v c:\GDILog.txt

Msiexec.exe /p Path\Visio2002-KB831932-MSO-FullFile-ENU.msp /qb- /L*v c:\MSOLog.txt
