Office 2000 Standard SR1

by techinWy / December 9, 2004 12:29 AM PST

I have a workstation that has MS Office installed from an MS Office Standard edition SR1 cd. I need to remove SR1 for Outlook to work with another application. Does anyone know if this is possible and if so how to do this? Thanks!

If there is a way, it might be at

However, why not just remove it and install the older version? Nothing stops you except yourself.

Actually the thing that 'stops me' is not having an older version - I only have the "Microsoft Office 2000 Standard Edition SR1" cd.

Just my thoughts then.

You can't undo it since DLLs that are needed will not exist. Your words gave me the impression you had this working elsewhere so that is why I noted to use the old version.

As it stands, you may have received some odd advice and I have a very incomplete picture of your issue.


1. Tell the full story.

2. Research the Service Release issues on

3. Find an old version. Either Ebay or elsewhere. They do exist.

Yes, found out from that SR1 can not be removed. Thank you.

I have not received any odd advice and there is no full story - all I really needed to know was if I could remove SR1 or not. I have other options if it could not - one of which I have already implemented.

Just so you know SR1 has an enhanced security feature that causes a bit of a problem with the application which kicks off an email notification program. I have a third party utility that works with Outlook to resolve the problem (Express ClickYes by Context Magic).

That is more than in your first post.
