Office ProPlus 2007 Failed Updates

On a Windows 7 Pro with SP1 installed, Windows updates fails 2 updates, both Security Updates for Microsoft Office 2007 Suites.

I had Microsoft Office ProPlus 2007 installed.
After doing all the troubleshooting in the Microsoft KB's relating to the problem, I totally uninstalled the Office 2007 using both the CP removal and Revo Uninstaller.
I did about 7 or 8 different Fixits relating to the subject and some close.

The Update still fails.
Attached and imbedded are snips.

Updates Failed
Also, when I tried to reinstall the Office 2007, it wouldn't install, no explanation.

Thanks,
Pete

Hi,

Softwaredistribution should be emtied, not necesarelly deleted, the DataStore should be renamed (if i remember correctly).

Did you also try to download the 2 KBxxxx manually and install them locally (run as administrator possibly?)

Hi Pete,

Did you also try the cleanup for Softwaredistribution?
Stop WU service, delete everything from windows\softwaredistribution\*
Rename datastore to something else start WU service and try again?

Hi Patrick, fast answer.
Yes I did.
Named the "software......old"
Restarted WU which created a new "soft...."

Same thing.
Should have mentioned this but I'm getting other Updates.

Ok, tried renaming, then emptying, then deleting
In all cases it reinstalled itself but still failed.

Downloaded both KB's to desktop and ran.
Both failed.

Hi,
I tried a different approach and attempted to do the reinstall of the whole Office 2007 Proplus.
Came up with a Registry string with error 1935
There's a Fixit for it which I ran.
Went to try the Updates again so I could reference a time to look at the Events Log.

Here's what happened:
I'm trying to go back to where I found the fix but it had something to do with a corrupt registry entry.
Now I'll try to do the reinstall of the Office.
If that fails, its another issue.
Thank you for your prompt help
Pete.
