Does anyone have a copy of the downloadable version of the MS Office 2000 SR-1A updater? The on-line version no longer works.

Thanks for the link.

The program at the link runs, but when it tries to download the actual content of the update, it generates an error. It appears that this content has been removed from the Microsoft site. This might be as a result of a legal settlement.

Looking into it, I found that there is a file called O2ksr1adl.exe which is a fully downloadable, independently running version of the Office 2000 SR-1 update. I couldn't find references to this file or the file itself on the Microsoft site.

I found a copy of O2ksr1adl.exe on a mirror site using a simple search of the file name. I downloaded it and it worked flawlessly. Since the file was still signed by Microsoft, I wasn't concerned about its validity.

Thanks again.
