Bugs: Office SR1 does not work in Win 98

Author(s)
Dev Ashish
  When you run the Microsoft Office 97 Service Release 1 (SR-1) Patch, you may receive the following message:

Microsoft Office 97 SR-1 Patch has completed successfully. Thank you for upgrading to the SR-1 Release!

    However, when you run any of the Microsoft Office programs, they do not appear to be updated. For example, the designation "SR-1" (without the quotation marks) does not appear in the About dialog box for each program. Or, problems that are corrected in SR-1 continue to occur.

Office 97 Service Release 1 (SR-1)

     This problem may occur if you attempt to install an earlier version of the Microsoft Office 97 SR-1 Patch after Microsoft Windows 98 has aligned your Microsoft Office 97 programs. The Windows 98 Setup program sets options to automatically run certain maintenance programs after Windows 98 Setup is complete.

      One of these programs, called Walign.exe, aligns (adjusts) program files, including the program files that are included in Microsoft Office 97, so that they load and run more quickly. Adjusting the program files changes the file size and internal structure; as a result, when you run the earlier Microsoft Office 97 SR-1 Patch, the patch examines the program files and determines that they cannot be updated.
