W8.1 Not Detecting Office Updates

Question: W8.1 Not Detecting Office Updates

How do I get Windows 8.1 to detect updates for Office 2007?

In the update settings, I only have two checkbox options.

I look at another Windows install and they have four checkboxes, one of which says something like "include updates for other Microsoft products".

Is there a KB I can install/registry tweak to get Windows update to show all four options?

Preferred Solution: W8.1 Not Detecting Office Updates

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

How do I get Windows 7SP1 to detect updates for Office 2007?

In the update settings, I only have two checkbox options.

I look at another Windows install and they have four checkboxes, one of which says something like "include updates for other Microsoft products".

I have tried the following:

1. Downloaded the latest windows update agent.
2. Change some registry setting for Office from 1 to 0 to get it to show "Microsoft Update" opt-in screen when you start an Office program.

None of that worked.

(Btw, this is happening inside a virtual machine. Could this be the problem, windows doesn't update Office inside a VM?!?!?)

Answer:Windows 7 not detecting Office updates

The VM shouldn't have anything to do with your problem.

Probably the thing to do is to reset Windows Update to default, and work from there.

Hey, I'm new here. I have a CyberPowerPC desktop, running Windows 10 Pro (build 1607), and it didn't and still doesn't detect the update for build 1703. Don't know why, or how. Can anyone on here give me an explanation for why it wouldn't detect the update(s)?

Answer:Computer not detecting updates

Welcome to TenForums @FanaticGuide

The Creators Update is being rolled out in phases, not everyone will see the 'Features update to Windows 10, version 1703' straight away. Also, there are some known issues with particular hardware - PCs that have such issues are blocked from receiving the Creators Update until Microsoft have developed fixes for these issues. There's more on the phased rollout here...

I encountered an issue that the windows update is detecting old updates (2014, 2016). It could not get the latest one (January) though the servers are being patched monthly (last patch is Dec 2017).

Before I encounter the issue, I performed a C drive clean-up and deleted large files under C:\windows\installer\$PatchCache$\Managed. Though last month, I also performed this but did not encounter any issue. The difference is, I did not remove all the large
files (100 MB) and on this month, I removed the remaining files.
I also removed old virus definitions on the server.
Can you please help me with this issue? How can the servers detect the latest windows update?
Your response is highly appreciated! Thanks!

i remember with windows xp and office, you could go to a different part of the microsoft windows update website in Internet Explorer, and it would prompt you with ActiveX to allow updates for Office, and after you did that then when you went to the normal windows (xp) update site there would be a whole other section of updates for microsoft office available. That was with office 2007 anyway.

i use a dell restore cd for windows 7 professional, on a dell pc obviously, to install win7 from scratch.
I can do windows updates no problem.
I have microsoft office 2010 professional plus with a valid license key, these are provided by my IT dept.
Office installs fine, during the install i can go through the options and install excel, powerpoint, all shared tools, and so on. Once installed, it works fine. There is no service pack installed at this point.

From here if I go windows update, I never see anything for office.
From within office, Microsoft Word file menu help for example, it shows office is activated and if i click on check for updates there it then opens an IE window which says updates can be done from start menu - programs - windows update. If i do that, it's a normal windows operating system update and I get nothing for office.

I have manually downloaded from microsoft, Office 2010 SP1 and SP2, and have installed either one.

Answer:not showing office updates thru windows update for office 2010 win7

You mean what's called Microsoft Update. If you go in to the settings in Windows Update, do you have this checked:

I have Office 2013 Pro Plus, but the click-to-run version which updates itself and is not part of Windows Update. But I don't think there's a click-to-run version for 2010 Pro Plus so that is probably not the issue here.

Answer:Receiving updates for Office 2010 but Office 2007 is installed.

If your computer is relatively new, it may have come with a trial install of Office 2010 - check the Start menu, and the Programs & Features listing.
You may also have installed Viewers for things like PowerPoint 2010, which still require updates.

Hi, I searched before asking this and it's probably a very simple answer. I have removed Windows Office from my laptop. Now using Open Office. Am I correct in thinking that it is safe to ignore all Windows Updates for any Office application? Plus, is it safe to remove any that were installed prior to my switch to OO. Although, I would think they went with Office when it was uninstalled.

Thanks for your help.

When I first got my computer (Windows 7 Home Premium SP1), it had a preinstalled trial version of Microsoft Office 2007. I removed it via the control panel (Programs and Features) and installed Office 2010. However, I still get Office 2007 updates via Windows Update. They even installed successfully.
There are no Office 2007 components listed under Programs and Features.

I've got Office 2003 Student Edition (all installed, minus Outlook). I haven't done any updates to it. I did not install the Microsoft GDI+ Detection tool. And I only visit Windows Update (not Microsoft Update) and install the critical updates under custom install.

I'm wondering:

1. Are the updates for MS Office that are critical security things included when you do Windows Update? (For example, there are a number of things listed here towards the bottom: http://isc.sans.org/diary.html?storyid=2232 -- would those have been included in the last batch of critical Windows updates?

2. Do you need the GDI+ thing to do Office Updates?

3. When you go to the Office Updates site, it wants you to install and run some kind of Active X thing. Is this necessary? And can it cause any problems?

4. Can doing critical Office updates (separate from whatever, if anything, that comes with Windows Update) cause any problems or conflicts with other things on your computer?

Answer:How Important Are Ms Office Updates? Are They Included In Windows Critical Updates?

I don't have that detection tool either. At least some of the office updates are available through the windows update feature. You can also navigate to the Office updates site from the windows update site. There are no problems with installing the office updates separately. In fact, I generally download only 1 or 2 updates at a time as I am on dial-up.

I don't even have MS Office Suite installed ... do I need to install the security 'patches' ?

What is confusing is that IE security updates are necessary for Windows even though I don't use IE.

Answer:Windows Security Updates For Office Needed If Don't Use Office?

IE is part of Windows, so you will see updates for it whether you use it or not. If you are seeing updates specifically dealing with Office, then you have it or some part of it installed. You don't get updates for a product that isn't there.

Answer:Cannot set option to include Office updates in Windows Updates

Hi there

When you installed office did you install from an ISO or somewhere like MSDN download. For these Office will be updated in the normal Windows update (set in the options of windows update to get updates for ALL Ms products rather than just Windows).

If you installed via the Online application then you can get updates by going into Office Account and then clicking the Update Office icon. These won't be handled by the standard check for updates in windows update. This is for Office 2016 and Office 365. For Office 2010 there's no change -- don't know about Office 2013 --never used it.

I am using Office 2013 Pro & it does not show updates in the normal Windows Update section on my computer. I have to refer to any Office application, select File & then Accounts to see that I have automatic updates selected & the update number, but it does not tell me if it is the latest update, so I have to check to see that it is the latest, which it is apparently.
I would like to be able to see which Office updates are available & to install them as I do with the usual Windows Updates. Can anyone suggest a solution please.

Answer:How do I get Office 2013 updates to show in Windows Updates.

Just a random thought. Does your computer have the "Click-to-Run" version of Office installed? Updates for the C2R version do not appear in Windows Update or WSUS. Updates are downloaded in the background automatically (whether you want them to or not).

You can identify C2R by looking under the File tab. There will be a button that shows update options (on or off) and the version number. Another way to identify C2R is in Window's Programs & Features. With C2R, you no longer have the ability to add or delete Office applications.

Answer:Office 2007 updates when I only have Office 2013

No don't decline these updates.
Office 2013 updates in the background & does not show up in the usual Windows Updates section. I am using Office 2013 Pro & I have it set for installing updates automatically.
It would be best just to let any updates that are required to be installed. Often certain updates are incorporated to cover a few versions of Office as they earlier ones need it so they incorporate it to cover all the applicable versions, which may also include later versions.
Therefore just leave it alone as fiddling with updates often causes trouble. Also it is just a whole lot of unnecessary work for you.

Hello,

I have uninstalled office 2010 few days ago and did a clean installation of office 2013.
But windows update is showing updates for both office 2010 and office 2013.

I have uninstalled office 2010 using Revo uninstaller so there are no traces
Am I missing something.

Answer:Office 2010 and Office 2013 both updates available

Hi there
Why on earth do people insist on using these 3rd party uninstaller apps for BOG STANDARD Microsoft applications --Ms OFFICE is one of the most used pieces of software on earth so installing / uninstalling it should be a breeze via STANDARD uninstall method.

Had you simply uninstalled via control panel then the entire problem would not exist.

Your 3rd party uninstaller obviously hasn't done its job properly as there is still some indication on your machine that Microsoft Update thinks you still have Office 2010 installed.

IMO 3rd party apps are better left for NON OS type applications - things like installing / uninstalling / updating software should be left to the OS itself. Very few 3rd party apps IMO should be allowed to interfere with the internal functions of the OS itself -- even AV software - but that's another issue.

My solution here would be to either restore your syste to a time before you installed the "Uninstaller" app or re-install a clean copy of windows, re-install the version of office you want and apply the updates.

Note -- when Ms updates programs it might make all sorts of registry changes "on the fly" and it's impossible for a 3rd party uninstaller to be able to handle or even find all these changes.

Cheers

I have had this issue on many computers but right now I am setting up an old Dell Latitude E5510 for an employee and I have reformatted, installed all drivers, and programs needed. I installed Office 2007, because this employee won't really be using the computer much.

Is it still sensing Office 2010 buried somewhere in the files and that's why it's asking me to install updates for it?

So I did a clean install of Win10 1709 and I had a problem with some things which then it appeared that doing another clean install should fix them and it did. But now I just realized a new problem. I am using WUMT and I am getting the Windows updates, but I am not getting the Office 2010 updates at all. Then I looked and in Settings > Update& Security > Windows Update it says at the top "*Some settings are managed by your organization" so I clicked on View configured update policies and under Policies set on your device it says "Exclude drivers from Windows quality updates". Source Administrator. Type Group Policy

So I went to gpedit and I don't see anything popping out at me with this.

I went back a page and then clicked "Advanced Options" from the main page and under "Choose how updates are installed" the box is unchecked. So I tried putting a check, but the moment I leave the page and come back it is unchecked again.

Is there a fix to this or please do not say I have to do another clean install.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

There must be something I am missing, but I don't know.

EDIT: Well, now it is working. I have rebooted a few times, launches various programs and it is still active and I can see my Office 2010 updates. Wow, and I did nothing.

Question: Office updates

I have an emachines et1331g desktop. The desktop came with Windows 7 and office 2007 (trial version) already installed. I uninstalled the office 2007 using control panel right away because I had office xp pro that I wanted to use instead. Although I uninstalled office 2007, I kept getting updates for 2007. When using Windows 7, I had the option to hide the updates and not install them. That worked to keep them from downloading. After upgrading to Windows 10, I cannot keep windows from downloading them. My question is: Why does windows update think I still have the office 2007 installed? There is no office 2007 showing in installed programs. Is there a way to prevent the updates for office 2007 that supposed to be uninstalled? I have office xp pro that works well with 7 and 10.

Answer:Office updates

First, I would be remiss if I didn't warn you that Office XP is no longer supported, and thus it has known vulnerabilities that attackers can take advantage of to install viruses and malware. You really should upgrade to a more modern version of Office. Office XP is 15 years old.

To answer your question, when you install a version of Office and then uninstall it, it leaves behind bits and pieces that still register with the Windows Update system, and thus Windows Update installs updates. These might be things like language versions, or other apps. You might want to check your Program Files folders for remnants of it. There is also a tool you can download from Microsoft to completely remove any given version of Office.

Question: Office updates

Hello: Do you have any suggestions:?

When I go to install the office update OfficeXP Service Pack 2 it shows that it is already downloaded,but when I go to install it and it asks for the microsoft works suite 2002 cd, i clik on ok and then it brings up error 1706.

It then tells me to not right installation pkg and to find word.msi in another folder which i can install microsoft word 2002, or check windows explorer under C: program files\microsoft office\office10\1033\setup.hlp.

I did that but can't find setup.hlp.
Would you be able to help me out with this. Thanks for your time.
 

Answer:Office updates

Your message is not clear. your syntax is a bit mixed up, so I am trying to follow. You are trying to install SP2 for Office XP. I assume, then, that you successfully installed SP1, which would be a prerequisite.

You mention that Windows asks for a Works disc. Very strange, and why would you have Works in your system if you have Office XP? That is like riding a tricycle when you own a Ferrari (some amount of value judgement expressed here, I could have said a Sherman tank, but I like Office XP).

So, why not get rid of Works, un-install it from your system. Then, again assuming that you have installed SP1 for Office XP, try installing SP2. Do it from the Microsoft website. If you had a download, get rid of it and start over. If you are successful, you are finished.

Now, if for some reason you really want or need Works (for the period of time in Works 4.0, Works's had much better templates, Microsoft assuming the user was an idiot), go ahead and re-install it.

I hope this helps.

In your next message, try to formulate better English, take more time, it is important for you to be understood.

Question: office updates??

Dumb question maybe, but office really isn't something I deal with much.
What I need to know is just how important the service packs are?
I really don't like the way outlook handles attachments after the updates, and if I can keep from doing them safely I would prefer that.
I am running office 2000 premium although I also have 2003 pro. I just don't like the 2003 because it already slams attachments, and even hyperlinks.
I run windows xp home with zone alarm pro, and norton antivirus 2004 pro.
Also don't click on attachments unless I know who they are from, and usually save them to disk a scan them before opening.
With these precautions, do you guys think I am safe without the updates? I am really hoping so but I'll update if necessary. TKS folks, Scott

Hi,

I've got Office 365 and it seems every time there are major updates to Office and or Windows updates as was yesterday...



Office 365 goes crazy and errors out if files ore accessed from OneDrive...



This happens every time there are major Office updates Most of the times the issue can be fixed by going to Account Options and clicking update Office, which works, but we shouldn't have to do that every time there's and update.



At any rate it seems Office suddenly forgets where files are located after updating and you have to physically go into OneDrive, click the actual file and re-link to a shortcut. In some instance you get an "incompatible" error as seen above even when directly clicking the file inside of OneDrive. You can ignore it, and the file will open, but once the file is closed when you attempt to open it again, you will still get the same error. Seems I may have to open it, and re-save it again

Anyway anyone else notice this issue? How do you re-solve it?

Thanks.

Following the kind replies to my previous query "Understanding .Net Framework" I reloaded a number of updates that were causing problems, learning a great deal about handling updates in the process. So emboldened, I've decided to attack the MS Office updates that I don't *think* I need. But just to be sure I'm asking about these.

I'm using the Open Office suite, but a while back I downloaded the trial version of MS Office. I didn't like it, and uninstalled it. Ever since I've been getting MS Office security updates. All I need are the WORD,Excel, & PPT viewers, to check the readability of OO exports to these formats. So what I've done is accept all updates & security updates for these viewers, but hide new updates & security updates for all versions MS Office. I've also removed all the old MS Office updates.

So far this seems to be working fine. My question, though: Is this good practice, despite the general rule to accept all updates? I don't know how tightly MS Office is integrated into the OS, and don't want to be surprised even though I'm not using it. Apologies for yet another amateur question. - edo

Answer:MS Office updates - not needed?

Even with just the viewers installed Office Updates will come in and you should accept any new updates. On my rig when I last uninstalled Office many moons ago Windows also uninstalled all updates pertaining to it automatically so am surprised that didn't happen here assuming your uninstalled it before installing any viewers.

You know that Microsoft provides totally free support for anything to do with updates? They are the best people to ask about this really.

Are you doing this for a reason such as lack of space....better to get a larger or another drive than mess with Microsoft's own stuff as they know best what's needed?

For the past few months I haven't really paid attention to the updates I've been installing. I've never had to search for them myself because I have Automatic Updates enabled. So anyway, after a while noticed that each time I was prompted to install these new updates, there were always 12. The next time I installed them I paid proper attention and realized that my computer wasn't allowing them to install. So I searched around the Microsoft website and found some help topics. so that I could download these updates.

I decided to start on the Microsoft Word Security update. The help topic told me that I probably had Office Source Engine disabled, and told me how to find it and enable it. So I opened Run and typed in 'services.msc', and then looked for the Office Source Engine file thingy on the side bar, but I couldn't find it.

So I left that and tried to download the updates directly from MS Word, so I went to Help and selected 'Detect and Repair'. It started working, so I assumed my problem was solved and minimized the screen, but a few minutes later I received an error that told me I should go to the following file and open 'SETUP.CHM' :

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\1033

So I did that, and I find some more instructions. They tell me to go to Re-install/ Repair MS Word. So I went over to Control Panel and used the 'Change' option to do that.. and then got another error message that told me to refer back to the Setup file and find info on ... Read more

Hi Pat,

To judge from the details of Microsoft's security May bulletin, there were updates for MS Office 2007 and below, but none for Office 2010 (at the link below, choose "Affected Software and Download Locations", then "Microsoft Office Suites and Software"):
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec.../ms11-may.mspx

In addition, MS Office 2010 is indicated as non-affected by a vulnerability which affects previous versions of MS Office:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec.../MS11-036.mspx

If you want to check whether you missed any updates, you can either run Windows Update (make sure that you have the option to receive updates for other Microsoft products activated), or you can try out this suggestion over here and update MS Office 2010 from within the program itself:

Hi,
I'm running Windows 7 on an Acer 5517. I replaced Office 2007 with Office 2003 (because I like 2003 better). This was about a year ago.

The problem is: when I download Windows Updates it doesn't read my Office 2003. So when I try to get into Word or Excel it can't find the files. i did a system Restore and got it back, but is there a way around this? If I need some important updates I should probably have them, but I don't want to keep running into this. (And I still don't want Office 7)

(It did this during last summer too, so I stopped installing the updates. I haven't updated since, except for today)

Anyone know which Windows update files I should avoid in the future, and which will not affect the Office '03 programs? Or is this asking too much?

Answer:windows and office updates

Well my first question is why would you want to uninstall the updates? these are issues to patch security flaws, or to improve functionality of the software. My advise would be to NOT uninstall any of the updates as it could potentially cause problems.

If you want to go back to the state when you bought the machine you could use the inbuilt factory restore feature (if you have that) and return your machine to the factory state which is probably the best way to go if you are experiencing problems. Otherwise please describe your predicament and we could perhaps offer some advice as to the best approach for resolving it.

Hi. I've heard from one of our teachers that our university had added a "sting" Windows Update to our machine, that if the update was downloaded and installed using IP range that's not on the university's range. The license on that computer will be revoked to prevent product key leakage. Is this really possible?
 
Thank you.

Answer:Office updates sting?

They'd have to push the update out using WSUS or SCCM. Not sure how anyone would be able to download that update if the computer isn't on a university subnet, unless they made their update server available to clients across the Internet.
 
And if a student was using their own computer, rather than one provided by the university, they probably wouldn't be configured to get their updates from the university's update server.

Hello,
I just reinstalled MS Office 2003 professional on a pc that I needed to do a clean install of xp professional on. Anyway, I have noticed that I am getting the necessary ms updates for xp but none of the office 2003 updates and I can't figure out how to fix that problem.

I did some searching and came up with an article at MS regarding not being offered the updates at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907380 but this states that article also states that if you go to the ms office updates site you are offered the updates. Problem is that MS decommissioned the service in August 2009 and that all updates are now offered directly through the MS updates link.

According to the MS article the issue occurs if the office 2003 installation was installed in per-user mode (but I did not install in that way - not even sure what that is). The work around takes you to a link that takes you to the ms updates site - so that is of no help.

I have been able to go to the MS site and finally found all the security updates for office 2003 and can download them from there and install them. But that is a real hassle and I never had this problem before.

Does anyone know how to resolve this issue.

Thanks so Very Much

Running the monthly update, there were no updates for MS Office 2003 even though there are at least two which are available to Vista. One update (KB975958) is an update to the Outlook Junk mail filter. The other was KB 975958.

Do they have to be added manually?

Answer:No updates for Office 2003 under Win 7

I just checked Windows Update.

KB975958 is now posted, along with 973443 and 973475.

There's also an update to the Malicious Software Removal Tool (890830).

No idea why the delay. (I have no Vista systems at the moment, so I didn't notice.)

Hi,
How can I stop getting Security Updates for Office 2007, they are constantly updated and failed of course since I have Office 2003. Did have a trial Office 2007 which came with the computer that I've long uninstalled.

Answer:Security Updates for Office

Hi Karmacat,

Go to start, Control Panel, Windows Upate, In the left Panel, Change settings and remove the tick from Update service, Use microsoft update

To get updates for office 2003 you will then have to reactivate the updates for Windows and other products from Microsoft Update.

You may also be asked to enter the download addresses into Internet Explorer again but this is well expained on the webpage that opens up, should this step be necessary.

I hope this helps

I built a custom installer file for use with a network install of Office 2007. I created a batch file to run setup.exe and pass my custom installer file to it, which all works wonderfully. However, I read that any updates put in the Updates folder would be installed near the end of the main Office 2007 install routine. I put the SP1 file in there, but it was ignored during the initial install. Am I supposed to rename the updates file to something specific? I left the file name as the default from Microsoft. Or, do these updates get ignored when using an installer file? I couldn't find documentation to answer either question.

Is it imperative that I update the Office Updates that Microsoft sends when all I have on my machine that is "Office" is the Word and Powerpoint Viewers. Seems like they send some very large files and I really don't want to 'clutter up' my hard drive with files I don't need.

Thanks for any and all help.
 

Answer:Solved: Office Updates

Hi Snoflake, welcome to TSG.

Whether or not you install the updates is up to you, but there are sometimes security vulnerabilities, even with just the viewers, that those updates can correct. If you don't want to install the updates, it might be a good idea to occasionally remove the viewers and reinstall them with the most current version from Microsoft, since those versions should contain the same fixes as the updates. Hope that helps.

i have a list of updates downloaded
they try to install and all fail (18)
all but one is for office 2003
renamed the systemdistribution folder when I ran it it appeared to work. 5 days later it was doing the same thing with the same updates.

I cleaned out the downloads folder in older Systemdistribution because this time it would not let me rename the folder and ran update again and it installed the one for IE silverlite but failed on all the office 2003 ones.

no error code - just failed.
what's going on here?

Well Windows update just told me I have new updates for office 7 and are ready to be installed. I don't have office 2007 on this computer, or, my 2nd computer. I do have Office 2010 on the 2nd computer, on my network. Anyone know why windows updates want to install updates for office 2007 on my Windows 10 computer which has no office installed??

Answer:New Updates for Office 2007???

Ok found the problem, I had installed a free app from the store, called Excel viewer, its a program to allow you to view and print Excel spread sheets, from Microsoft. Because I installed that Excel view app, it made windows 10 think I had Office 2007 installed, and was going to install 7 updates for Microsoft Office 2007 on my hard drive!!!! I deleted the app, removed any file left over pointing to Excel, rebooted, now the updates for office 2007 are no longer listed as pending. This has to be a bug, Windows 10 should have known I did not have office 2007 installed, but just a excel viewer, a FREE app. Gezzzz That one little app would have windows update install 100+ megs of updates for office 2007. most likely a lot more than 100 mgs.....

The MS Office July updates contains a new file validation utility - "Microsoft Office File Validation Add-in"

Questions

1. Is this Add-in really necessary? And if it is why?

2. The Add-in has been developed outside of Microsoft by a 3rd-party. I would have thought that Microsoft would have developed this type of code themselves. Why the 3rd-party?

I have office 2003 and the updates will stop along with xp. How is MS office 2003 vulnerable? I can delete the mail account but are there other issues?
thanks
jim

Answer:Office 2003 updates

Yes there are. The problem is that when the updates cease any security improvements will also stop, so Office 2003 may become vulnerable to virus & other attacks. While these may not become apparent to you, until your computer actually stops working or has problems, you may inadvertently transmit infections to other users via email attachments etc..
Even if you are using another email program, Office 2003 is still on your computer. Using a good anti virus program will help, it may not stop eventual infection.
For peace of mind & safety it would be best to update your Office suite to a later version.

Hi.
Has anyone had or heard about a problem about using mail merge
in Word 2010 after a recent update?
Not the critical updates, but more casual updates?

It seems the user cannot browse through the previews
of the pages before the user prints them in mail merge.

So I was wondering if a MS Office update could mess this up?

For the first time in ages I went to Office update. It listed 3 updates (post SP2). These were KB830346, 830350 and 812708. Since then, Office applications are misbehaving. Slow startup, problems with address book, Word crashing. I can't see how to uninstall these, and I've tried the detect and repair function in Office XP.Has anyone else noticed any problems? If so, is there any answer other than a reinstallation of Office? I'd rather avoid that because of the time it takes to re-create toolbars, email accounts etc. The age-old problem - I should not have fixed a system that wasn't broke.

How can I turn off Microsoft Office updates ONLY and keep any other Microsoft product on with automatic updates?

Answer:Microsoft Office updates

I moved this to the Office forum. I recommend that you NOT use auto updates. IMO that is just another method to dumb down control of your computer. At the most, use notifications and then go to the site using custom instead of express. Review each update to determine if you want to install it. If there is a critical update for Office then by all means install it. I NEVER allow Microsoft to install any hardware updates (drivers). If it has problems then go to the manufacturer's site for updated drivers.If you don't want to do that then you can change the parameters to notify and when going there you can mark NOT to show anymore updates like that. When using Windows 7 you have a Windows update program listed under the Start button. Go there and choose settings, then make changes as desired.

Hi All
I installed Office 2007 Ent. on my Win 7 drive and everything was working - then allowed 24 updates.

Now all Office programs are saying they are not installed for this user?

And I can't figure a way to uninstall the updates to see if that was the problem.

Can anyone tell me a solution?

Strange thing happened today.I have Windows XP and Office2003.When I went for Windows updates today, the list, besides Windows updates included four updates for Office 2003, which I installed. But it also included three updates for Office 2007. I skipped those.No idea what to do. Normally MS list corresponds to what I should have.I do have some sort of a compatibility pack installed long ago, but I doubt that's related.The updates at issue are KBs 2596880, 2596672 and 2597162. The descriptions include wording such as 'you may need your Office 2007 installation CD' which of course I don't have.Can someone knowledgeable about those updates tell me what to do? Thanks in advance.

Answer:Do I have to install these MS office updates

The updates at issue are KBs 2596880, 2596672 and 2597162. The descriptions include wording such as 'you may need your Office 2007 installation CD' which of course I don't have.Can someone knowledgeable about those updates tell me what to do? Thanks in advance.The first update updates security information in files.2nd updated listed = updates a big security hole in quite a few things(.net framework, Windows office, etc).3rd one is another security patch to stop remote exploits.Also these updates are used for more than 1 software package, mainly requires office 2003 service pack 3 at least and goes up in versions from there including office compatibility packs.Also you might have an office 2007 compatibility pack installed, which shouldn't need an installation cd for installing these updates.Since these are all mainly security updates, I would recommend you to install them.

Vista with SP1I use an older version of Open Office - 2.2 I think. There's always updated versions appearing on PCA cover-mounted discs and Beta 3.0 is also currently available.I'm not enthusiastic about Beta versions but is there anything to be gained by changing to 2.4? My only regular use is for word-processing....

Hi. I've heard from one of our teachers that our university had added a "sting" Windows Update to our machine, that if the update was downloaded and installed using IP range that's not on the university's range. The license on that computer will be revoked to prevent product key leakage. Is this really possible?

Win 7 Hm Prem 64 - 2010 Home-Student Office via purchased Key/Dnload ........

I'm new to 2010 Office and Win 7 (from XP) and want to confirm that a number of 32-Bit office 2010 Updates I just watch install are NOT a Glitch, but rather OK for this Win 7 (64) machine. I'm use to having '03 Office and getting '07 Updates from installing '07 Office readers, and that's my only SWAG guess as why this may occur.

Many Thanks!

Answer:32-Bit Office Updates OK on 64 Machine?

Yes, 32 bit Office is fine on a 64-bit machine. The only compatibility issue is with Office 64 (and not with Office 32): if you have an Office application with VBA code that gets compiled on a 64-bit system that code will not run on a 32-bit system.

But the reverse is OK - the same application compiled on a 32-bit system will run on both 32 and 64 bit systems.
