I've got a Windows XP machine on which I installed Office 2000. I then accidentally installed the Office Compatibility Pack for 2007 files before installing all the critical patches for Office 2000. Now obviously it doesn't detect that it needs the patches for Office 2000 when I run windows update.
The removal instruction on the Microsoft site say to go into "Add/Remove Programs", and remove the entry "Compatibility Pack for the 2007 Office System", but I can't see this entry in my Add/Remove Programs.
So I uninstalled Office 2000, then reinstalled it again, but it still won't detect that it needs patches.
Does anyone know a way to manually remove the Office Compatibility Pack so that Office 2000 patches will be detected and installed? (I don't want to have to rebuild the machine from scratch).
