Default Updates for Office 2003...no install disks and error pop ups...

I inherited a desktop PC with Office 2003..the licenses seem to be fine as
far as I can tell. I do not have the original install disks. When the
updates try to launch, I get various error pop ups and none of the updates
install. Here is what the pop up says:

*****************
Microsoft Professional Edition 2003
The feature you are trying to use is on a Network Resourse that is
inavailable.

Click OK to try again or enter an alternative path to a folder containg the
install package "Pro11.msi" in the box below.
*
******************

Am I out of luck without the install disks in hand?...CF

When you inherited that system, you should have either inherited Office
*with* the CDs if it was an OEM copy or if Office was part of the bargain or
if not part of the bargain, Office should have been uninstalled.

Download and run Belarc Advisor to find the product key. If it contains OEM,
you're out of luck without the disks.

Download the MSOcache file. It may work if you point to it. It has the Pro11.msi
file, it will be a hidden folder.
