OUTRET.MSI not found error on install of Office XP SP3

OK...My desktop will not allow the Office XP SP3 update to install because it
is searching for the Microsoft Outlook 2002 file "OUTRET.MSI" and it is not
on my MS Office XP Pro w/Publisher CDs nor on the XP CD. My laptop ran
fine...what can I do?

Thanks!

Re: OUTRET.MSI not found error on install of Office XP SP3

Outret.msi is from a standalone Outlook retail CD. So, you would need to
insert the Outlook CD and not the Office CD.

Alternatively, there are reports that ActiveSync from HP also has this
file - if you have that handy, you could try that.

Yes, I did it!!! ActiveSync from HP had the OUTRET.MSI file.

Thanks, Mr. Paton, you made my day.

Re: OUTRET.MSI not found error on install of Office XP SP3

Check in Add/Remove Programs in the Windows control
panel to see if you have a standalone copy of
Microsoft Office Outlook listed there. If so,
it's on that CD. If you're also running the same
edition (i.e. XP(2002) or 2003) of Microsoft Office
you may be able to uninstall the standalone Outlook
then use the one from the Microsoft Office install.

Re: OUTRET.MSI not found error on install of Office XP SP3

Hi there,

You can either put in your office installation cd or download the full
version Sp3 which does not need the office cd to install.

Best regards,
Michel Denie

RE: OUTRET.MSI not found error on install of Office XP SP3

This is more for others to read, if you sync a PDA or phone to the computer
look on the setup disk for that. That's where I found outret.msi, it's used
for the outlook setup for the sync.

Re: OUTRET.MSI not found error on install of Office XP SP3

The original Office for Windows XP Pro does NOT contain the requested file:
OUTRET.msi

If it cannot be downloaded or located on a CD already in my collection, then
it would be up to MicroSoft to make it right. This should have been
addressed at the time the SP3 was rolled out.
