Fix for installation failure of KB946691 for Office 2k7

I use Microsoft Office 2007 Enterprise edition and recently saw this error in the System event log:

Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x8007006e: Update for the 2007 Microsoft Office System (KB946691).

For more information, see Help and Support Center at

Microsoft’s Support site says that the cause is due to “when the Windows Installer encounters a reference either to a drive that no longer exists or to a removable media device that contains no readable media.”

So to resolve it, you’ll need to download KB946691 and then install it.

Hope this helps.
