Cannot install 2007 Microsoft Officer Service Pack 3 on two machines

I am attempting to run my monthly updates via WSUS this month and am getting two failures pursuant to the 2007 Microsoft Office Service Pack 3 (SP3).

Interestingly enough, one PC is running XP while the other is running Windows 7.  The log for the XP machine reads "Windows failed to installthe following update with error 0x8024002d".  The Windows 7 machine produces the same log entry with the only difference being the error is 0x80070643.

Is there a known issue regarding this type of failure?  Please let me know if there is.

Thank you.

There could be a variety of reasons why a large update such as this might fail. Since it is two machines, consider downloading SP3 and installing it manually. I put it on Office 2007 on a Vista machine. It took a long while to install, but it did install properly. ... Thinkpads_User
i tried the same directions on my office 2007 machines.

I needed to completely uninstall/reinstall Office 2007 on the affected machines to get the updates to go.  They were failing even after trying to install the service pack manually from optical disk.
