Problems updating office 2003 SP3 with WSUS 3.0

I am trying to install Office 2003 SP3 using WSUS 3.0 and am receiving the errors listed below in the update log. The problem does not occur with all the PCs but for most of them.  The workstations are XP, SP2 and the server is Server 2003 R2 SP2. The 2003 Office was an admin install. I have tried replacing the ose.exe file and removing the local installation source. The computers are part of a workgroup, we are not using active directory. I am on a network with more than 100 computers.

Forced install timer expired for scheduled install

Does it work when started manually?

The patch does install sucessfully by manually using the download off of Microsoft. Does that mean that there may be a problem with the WSUS copy of the patch? The log above is a sample of the errors that I received in windowsupdate.log.

I have searched the the client, and have not found any Ohotfix files.  Our installation source does not have the servcie pack. I have tried the link listed above and the problem still occurs.

I did try replacing the OSE files, and verified that it was running as listed in the above link.  I also tried the steps listed in the Microsoft link that explains how to use the LISTool to delete the local installation files.

Thanks.
