While installing office on a streamlined XP pro install on my laptop i came accros this problem.

“I tried to install office 2007 enterprise on xp sp3 with all updates
and ie7 installed. i had office 2007 working fine on my Desktop.
durling the install i got theĀ  ==

The windows installer service cannot update one or more
protected windows files ==

error and office 2007 rolled back.
then i tried again to install office 2007. again it did not work.

i tried it several times and sometimes it just said installation error
without the The windows installer service cannot update one or more
protected windows files error message

from other posts i see The windows installer service cannot update one
or more protected windows files is a common error with people installing office 2000 on ‘certain oem versions of xp’ the fix is supposedly copying a bunch of files from the office cd to
c:\program files\common files\ms shared\web server extensions\40\bin
now i observe that i have NO FILES in
\40\bin at all

is the solution as simple as this???

i note that some other people have successfully installed this same
version of office 2007 as i have on their computers so i don’t think
there is a problem with it any thoughts? “”

Well the answer is yes…

you download the file from
http://www.dlldump.com/cgi-bin/testwrap/downloadcounts.cgi?rt=count&path=dllfiles/F/fp4autl.dll
you deom the dll in to the correct folder on your desktop and your good to go
just restart the office install….

I tried to install office 2007 enterprise on xp sp2 with all updates
and ie7 installed. i had office 2003 working fine.
got the ==The windows installer service cannot update one or more
protected windows
files ==error and office 2007 rolled back.
naturally this totally screwed outlook 2003. i had to reinstall office
2003 to fix the mapi32.dll error everybody gets when this happens. that
worked.
then i uninstalled office 2003 completely and tried again to install
office 2007. again it did not work.
i tried it several times and sometimes it just said installation error
without the The windows installer service cannot update one or more
protected windows files error message

it looked to me like the computer was trying to access the internet, or
my network, since the icons of two computers in the system tray was
flashing, so i disconnected from my LAN. that did not help either.
