    Hello guys!

    I am not sure if this question/problem was posted here before but here i go. Is really simple:

    I tried to install "Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 with SP2" (SP2 was already integrated with Office 2007 installation) on a HP Mini netbook with Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate installed. The installation of "Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 with SP2" went fine but when I checked the Windows updates it shows me the Office 2007 SP2 is available for download. I know this error or problem is common and could be a windows update issue so I check Word 2007 Help/About windows just to make sure Office SP2 was installed, and it doesn't say anything about SP2 so it looks like SP2 was not installed.

    The funny part is that I use this Office 2007 SP2 .ISO file in many other computers and everything was fine, i even browsed the ISO folders to make sure the SP2 was there and under the updates folders there are some files about SP2.

    My only option now is to manually install the SP2 on this netbook using the windows update, this is not a problem but I couldn't sleep yesterday thinking why could the cause be? I am pretty sure it was not my office iso file.
