I have Windows 98, AOL, with a Dial up Modem. When I go on line and try to
do an Office update, I get a message that tells me to close AOL before
downloading Office updates. Since I am using a dial up modem with AOL, and
if I close it, I will not have a internet connection. What is the purpose
of closing my dial up modem with AOL?. Why is it required?

Thanks
Douglas

Might be ActiveX is required, try downloading the Network installation
updates; this way you can download the update then install it at your
leisure.

You could also try minimizing your AOL browser and open IE to do your
business.

You might consider getting a real ISP.

Pennywise is correct that the automatic update feature uses ActiveX.

After you get connected to AOL, launch Internet Explorer, then go to the
Office Update site and see if it works for you.
