Installing updates to Microsoft Word

I downloaded update 11.2.4 and get a message that it can't find the
necessary files to do the upgrade. I tried to trash all the
preferences, and repaired permissions. Any other suggestions?

*11.2.4* ? - I don't even remember that one, and it isn't on the downloads
site (although 11.2.3 isn't either).

None the less, bypass it altogether. Download the 11.2.5 updater form here:

http://www.microsoft.com/mac/downloads.aspx

It will catch you up on prior updates, then d/l 11.2.6 from the same site.

BTW - what are you updating *from*? I ask because some have attempted to use
the v.11 _updates_ in order to *upgrade* from Office v.X - that just won't
work.

I tried to update from 11.2.5 first, when it said it couldn't find the
necessary files I read the "readme" and it said 11.2.4 was needed
first. I have 11.2.3 installed,and it is Office 2004.

First, try downloading the 11.2.5 update from the site I gave you the link 
for & see if that makes a difference. make sure *no* Office programs are 
running when you attempt the install.

What version of OS X?

How do I export WORD or PUBLISHER files to AOL instead of Outlook
I would like to imbed docs and pubs in AOL, not OUTLOOK, but I can't figure out how to do it. It can't be done. Your only option would be to use Outlook Express with your AOL (assuming that can still be done) and send them that way. And to be honest with you, I'm not 100% certain that will work.

How to tell what Updates have been Installed?
I just tried the Microsoft AutoUpdate and it says there are no updates for your software at this time. I then clicked on the "View Installed Update" button and shows no history. Just blank page. My Entourage version is 12.0.1 and I think this is the current version. Should the 12.0.0 to 12.0.1 update be displayed on the installed updates page? How can this update be added to the blank installed updates page? There were some issues with 12.0.1, obviously--it doesn't show on my machine either. I don't know for sure, but I would expect that 12.1 will be a combo updater...

We checked and the APS service is not started and will not start no matter what we try. Also there is three tables missing from the Crystal database: APS_IdNumbers2, APS_InfoObjects2 and APS_VersionInfo.
