Hi kabooby,

I would suggest you to try the steps from the following article link and check if it helps:

You receive an "Installation Error: File not Found" or "Error 0x51F" error message when you try to update Office 2003 programs from the Office Update Web site or the Office Download Center

Hope this helps.

Thanks and Regards,
