    I have tried to update my office 2008 and am getting this error message (see photo). I have cancelled the installer and now whenever I try to open Word it is failing. Anyone have same problem / know how to fix this?

    Have you done anything to your Office installation, such as moving it to a different folder or running an app like Monolingual or Xslimmer?

    You need to install all the previous updates (12.1.0, 12.1.1 I think, it's been a while since I've had to use Office) first, you can't just jump to the latest update.

    Office 12.1.2 Update Error - Monolingual

    I'm having this same problem and yes Nadyne, I have previously run Monolingual. Is there a workaround for this or will this update require an Office reinstallation?

    Thanks for your insights.

    Sorry, you're going to have to reinstall Office and then apply the updates (12.1, then 12.1.1, then 12.1.2).

    If you want to know more about why Monolingual breaks Office, there's more detail in Leave those bits alone!, a blog post from one of the devs on my team.

    Regards,
    Nadyne.
