I also tried running Office update. It said I needed four updates, and they
also failed. I tried installing each individually, without success. I tried
downloading and installing the larger versions individual, without success.
I followed the instructions. When I went to the Office Update site,
different updates were available than previously. I updated, and it worked.
So, I don't know if the above article was the cure, or if the new updates
were, or both.
I had same problems with installing KB907417 and KB907492.
In that case the discribed procedure postet by bigking was succesful. Thanks.
This method helped me as well after weeks of failing attempts. Thanks for
the information bigking.
The conditions with 0x52F occur especially when you did install office from
network path, or something like network path. This procedure worked for me.
