Can Windows Me Lock-up Office XP Updates?

ot at all!!
Have you run Belarc to check on your patch status??

I still have problems seeing how you missed the clear instruction
"In the left pane, look under the 'See Also header - is 'Windows Update
Catalog' listed? If not, see below. "
- especially as 'below' is a hyperlink to the instructions to enable the
Catalog in Windows Update.

If after all patches are properly installed, office update refuses to work
properly, then your best bet is to post your problem in the appropriate
Office newsgroup - to which I'm copying this post.

oel, the See Below Hyperlink only moved me 2 inches down the same
instruction page, didn't take me to any Instructions at another link site (
as I found via the "If Help & Support is Not Working" link) -
329115 Shows OK in Win Me in Belarc.
Per your line "your best bet is to post your problem in the appropriate
Office newsgroup - to which I'm copying this post." - Presume that is
"Office Update" Chat Group? Thanks again.

raig
You really *must* begin to answer questions as presented, rather than go
off on tangents.....

FWIW - when you clicked on the 'below' link, it moved the focus of the
screen so that the relevant informational @Note@ was at the top of the
screen....
to quote
"Note - to enable the Windows Update Catalog , you need to go to Windows
Update, and scan for updates - when the scan is complete, in the left pane,
you'll see a link to 'Personalize Windows Update' - click on that, and then
put a checkmark in the 'Display the link to the Windows Update Catalog under
See Also' box - save the settings, and the link should appear on the left."

Can Windows Me Lock-up Office XP Updates?

use Windows 98SE, but I have been repeatedly prompted to download the
Outlook update kb837009. The update program does not allow for any other
updates. How can I get around this? I looked in add/remove programs, and
the file is not listed. I downloaded it, but it is for Windows XP only. Any
help? Thanks.

On the contrary - the KB837009 update is relevant to most varieties of
Windows -
