    Exactly the same Pb on 1 of my computers, others don't bring any error. What
    to do?

  3. Have you tried the fullfile method? Download the full 104 mb file and use
    that to install.

  4. You receive an "Installation Error: File not Found" or "Error 0x51F" error message
    when you try to update Office 2003 programs from the Office Update Web site or the
    Office Download Center

    You may receive error 0x51F when you try to install an Office Updates. Applicable
    Office versions: Office 2003

    Error code 0x51F – Apparently this occurs when Office Setup cannot locate the
    installation source because it’s either corrupted or deleted.
    Downloading the full update for Office 2003 may fix this problem.


    Some have reported that placing the Office 2003 CD in the drive before trying to
    install the update also fixes the problem.

    Otherwise try repairing your installation of Office 2003

    Method 1 – Open Word, go to Help – Select Detect and Repair

    or use Method 2 -

    1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
    2. Click Add or Remove Programs.
    3. Click the Office 2003 program that you want to repair, and then click Change.
    4. In the Maintenance Mode Options dialog box, click Reinstall or Repair, and then
    click Next.
    5. In the Reinstall or Repair Office dialog box, click Detect and Repair errors in my
    Office installation, and then click Install.
    6. When the repair process is finished, run the update again.

    Most likely you will need to have your Office 2003 CD handy.
