Office 2010 Service Pack 1 Stuck at Downloading

Hi people,

There is a probably a million reasons why Office 2010 will fail to install. In this case it was because the update required the language packs for German, Spanish and French.

Re-download the update and select these lanaguges including English and it should resolve your issues.



    How did you find this work around? It has been plaguing me for weeks. I have dug through installer logs, SCCM logs (on both the client and the server) and MSI logs to no avail. I ran across your post through another forum and decided to give it a shot.

    What do you know, it all worked! Kudoz to you sir!

  2. Hey Will,

    I am glad that it’s helped you. It got me for a couple of days too. I had a similar issue with .Net 4 too. I'm no genius. I actually think I found the solution online.

    This solution didn’t make sense to me because I have only deployed the English version of Office 2010. But it fixed my issues.

    Glad I could help.

  3. Thank you for posting this link on my question over at TechNet. One of the first things I did was check to make sure the English content was selected and downloaded as I had had a similar problem with .Net 4.0 a few months ago... I guess Microsoft must have changed some requriements for some reason. Nice to be told eh?
