1) Could not install update--received same message as noted in earlier posts.
2) Deleted all files related to Office 2008; reinstalled MS Office 2008; applied update successfully.
3) Well worth the effort! All Office applications start up much more quickly and are considerably more responsive.

I highly recommend installing the update, but you may have to delete your existing installation of Office 2008 and reinstall before you can apply the update.

Missing Sync has worked well for me over the past three years. I have consistently been able to sync my Treo 650 or Treo 680 to my Mac with very few problems, and when I had problems, they were nearly always a result of conflicts I had created with changes to the programs on my Palm or the categories into which I divided my data.

Moving to Leopard created some challenges. I was one of the lucky people who found that 6.0.2, beta 2, released within days of Leopard's release, worked flawlessly for synchronizing my iCal and Address book which are my only critical daily syncs. From reading the Missing Sync Beta Forums, it was clear that many folks were not so fortunate. In such cases, where problems are not consistent, it is very difficult to know whether the problem originates with Apple OS X, other third-party applications, or Markspace, the developer of Missing Sync.

Nonetheless, Markspace made betas available throughout the development process, provided forums for public comment (and comments gathered in such forums ALWAYS run to the negative, since people are far more inclined to voice problems,) and appeared to me to address the radical changes in Leopard rather quickly, given that many of the changes to the way OS X syncs were very late changes in the development of 10.5.

The final version of Missing Sync for Palm 6.0.2 works very well for me. I followed Markspace's release notes' directions of backing up data and overwriting data on my Palm with data from my Mac on first sync.

I post this review so other readers will see there are people who have come through the transition to Leopard and Missing Sync for Palm 6.0.2 quite satisfied. I do not intend to suggest that problems others have had are not legitimate. Missing Sync works great for me and I will continue to use it until iPhone 2 or 3 hits the market and makes its use unnecessary.
