Should you get any other messages from your update saying it could not update the thing then it is best to save time and grief and just visit microsoft.com and then type the error number into their search engine. It should take you to a page where that particular file is kept and you can download it manually. Just highlight and then save the file and then later open up the file and click on it and it should upload and download itself. That is what they mean by downloading manually.
I am also using microsoft works to write with as sadly my computer did not come with microsoft word already installed. Word is far superior but works does a few jobs to satisfaction. I noticed that you cannot copy cut and paste easily into works as it claims the file to be too large. If you encounter that problem then go into programs and open up note pad or preferably word pad which is the better of the two. Then paste into word pad and then copy from word pad back into microsoft works then it will all go into works.
I just thought I might send you that useful little gem in case you encountered that hassle.
