Strategies for updating your Office 2003 installations

Office 2003 offers administrators new options for updating Office 2003 on users' computers. When you install Office 2003 from a compressed CD image on the network, rather than from an administrative installation point, Setup caches the compressed cabinet files on the local computer and performs the installation from there. After the installation is complete, the local installation source remains where it is — hidden and available. Because users have access to a source on their own computers, you can distribute smaller client patches to update Office. And because the original network image stays the same, clients never become out of sync with an updated image.

Microsoft recommends that you establish and maintain a baseline image of Office 2003 and take advantage of a local installation source and smaller binary patches. The binary version of the Dutch Spelling Checker update is available from the Microsoft Download Center for Mise à jour du vérificateur d'orthographe néerlandais dans Office 2003 : KB838022 (French) and Update voor de Nederlandse spellingcontrole in Office 2003: KB838022 (Dutch). The binary version of the Update voor de Nederlandse spellingcontrole in Office 2003: KB838022 voor Office Taalprogramma's is available from the Microsoft Download Center. The binary version of the Update voor de Nederlandse spellingcontrole in Office 2003: KB838022 voor Multilingual User Interface Pack is available from the Microsoft Download Center.

For more information about this update method, see the topic Distributing Office 2003 Product Updates and read the section "Caching installation files locally and distributing client updates".

If you deployed Office 2003 from an uncompressed administrative installation point, you cannot take advantage of local caching. However, you can still maintain your administrative image at a baseline level and distribute the full-file (administrative) version of the Dutch Spelling Checker update directly to users. Because administrative updates install complete files, rather than patched files, the administrative update can correctly replace any files that have been modified with previous updates. Users can apply them even when they do not have access to an installation source.

For more information about applying administrative patches to directly to client computers, see the topic Distributing Office 2003 Product Updates and read the section "Distributing full-file administrative updates".

In an organization with strong centralized control over software deployment, you may choose to apply the Dutch Spelling Checker update to the administrative installation point, and then recache and reinstall Office 2003 on users' computers to apply the changes. In this scenario, new client installations always include the most recent updates; however, if there is a delay in updating some clients, they become unsynchronized with the patched administrative image.

For detailed procedures for patching the administrative image and updating client computers, see the topic Distributing Office 2003 Product Updates and read the section "Updating clients from a patched administrative image".
