Is there anything I can do to help?
EDIT: I did some closer looking (inside the SP1 file and in the registry location that the APM file pointed to) ... and the SP1 update is listed as it should be. It is detected by the AP installer, but there's no listing SP2 or SP3, or any of the more current updates...
Is anyone else seeing stuff like this?
My first post (below) still stands. When SP3 is installed and SP1 is not, then AP still thinks that I need to install SP1.
I've been having issues getting Office 2007 SP1 to be detected by AP. I checked the APM file and it points to the following location:
Current location in APM: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Installer\Patches\1CCE4AC44DBD1954F8C4AA21DAD2E395\SourceList
but I found it here:
Alternate Location: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Products\00002109030000000000000000F01FEC\Patches\10E57EEBF3DDF5D49BC606E956834D91
Actually, the "alternate location" was one of 21 finds in the registry. They all say the same thing -- Office 2007 SP1.
The location where all 21 can be found (in my registry) is:
The pattern to find all 21 of them seems to be:
The first of the 21 results is "00002109030000000000000000F01FEC"
Within this one is 15 sub keys, only one of which is for Office 2007 SP1. The rest is for a bunch of other office updates.
Lastly, I checked the registry location in the APM, there are definitely references to office patches there, but Office 2007 SP1 isn't one of them.
Is this normal? Is any of this stuff automatically generated and therefore hard to track?
I first noticed this when checking for updates with AP when I already had Office 2007 SP3 installed (on a different machine). It showed SP1 as not being installed (which it wasn't, only SP3 was).
Is this normal? Or is Office 2007 giving you guys a run for you money?
In the meantime, I'm gonna do some testing on my end to see if I can find definite registry paths for these updates that are consistent across all my machines.
