not showing office updates thru windows update for office 2010 win7

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

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.
When i go to the help menu it then shows office 2010 SP # so the service pack seems to have installed no problem. But I still never see any updates for office from windows update. what's the deal?

Preferred Solution: not showing office updates thru windows update for office 2010 win7

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.)

A: 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.

Hi, I recently formatted my Dell Inspiron Duo netbook, with Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit. I installed all of the software which I run on it without any problems.

When I try to update Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus (32bit) Windows Update only finds a few updates, and after they're installed it doesn't find anymore updates. It doesn't even find Office 2010 SP1.

{Note: I had no problems with other updates like Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 or other Microsoft updates.

I tried uninstalling Office 2010 and installing it again but nothing changed. The privacy settings which show up the first time you run an Office application I set it as "Recommended settings".

I also tried downloading Office 2010 SP1 (32bit) and when I tried to run it an error came up saying something like version mismatch (I presume that you need to install other updates before running the setup & I also tried to download an other update but the same error came up.)

I didn't have this problem before I formatted the computer.}

I hope I gave a detailed description of my issue, and thanks.

Just bought a new laptop with Windows7 64bit installed-my first exposure to Windows7. I had Office 2007 installed on my old Dell 32 bit machine. I had also recently pruchased Office 2010 and installed that on my new machine.

Now, when I try to open those 32bit 2007 files with 64bt 2011, Iget an error message that "no picture file is available", or words to that effect. When I try to "open with", the only option displayed is "Microsoft Office" with an icon that looks like a picture file. When I try to browse to the proper office program(Excel, for example), there are none of teh Office suite programs displayed, only "Microsoft Office".

I can navigate seperately to the proper progran, Excel, etc., and drag the file into the application, and it opens, and all seems to work OK. I "save as" the proper application file, but it still will not open with double-click on the file name.

I have not seen this particular item in the forums and would appreciate very much some help in fixing this issue.

It seems that there may be a problem in Office 2010. I just installed it to the standard MS default/recommended settings .........all looked good...used Word great..until I use Excel and each time I try to use excel it sets off an 'Office Configuration' screen which I can not stop..it take a few minutes and then loads OK. I tried to launch it from the installed prgrams icon but there is no files on 'start in' etc..I tied to create a shortcut to the desktop from the excel.exe file and get the same reconfigure issue..it seem that somehow I don't have either permissions or I have a corrupt install..all Office suite works eventually Anyone know how to fix it..please?

A:Office 2010 Pro Plus Win7 x 64 Excel reconfigures Office 2010

Have you ever had a previous version of Office on this copy of win7?

Do you have any component of a previous office suite installed still

I have seen this in the past with Viso that was due to remnents of an earlier trial remaining on disk and in the registry.

I also found that if I cancelled the configuration screen the Viso would load without problems without the need to wait for completion.

There are some rather involved solution stems on Microsoft website - cannot find them at the present but will try to look for them.

The problem was that I could never get the removal steps to actually cure the issue and I put up with the error until my next re-install of Win7, which was not to long in the case of that system

I don't know if maybe I'm the only one who runs into this problem or if it happens to a lot of people, but it seems to come up a lot for me.

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.

I start up Windows Updates today and it has me downloading 3 updates for Windows 2010. This computer had Office 2010 on it before it was reformatted. Is it still sensing Office 2010 buried somewhere in the files and that's why it's asking me to install updates for it? Does Office 2007 use updates that are also made for 2010(and are only labled 2010)? Anyone have any ideas? I don't believe it's hurting anything, but I am curious!

Hi everyone,

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.

Why am I getting Office 2007 updates although I've got only Office 2010?...

Windows Updates says they are important.

I do not have Office 2010 installed. Office 2007 is installed.

My security software keeps telling me I am at risk because my operating system is not up to date.

Any thoughts on what I should do?

A: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 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.

I've used copy and paste from web site antiguaobserver.com for years without bother. Since the 25 April I have noticed the title Observer gets chopped off at the bottom after the new Office updates were installed. I decided to reinstall Office 2010 and copy and paste again; this worked as usual however, when the new updates are installed again the chopping off of the title reoccurs, which leads me to believe Office updates are the problem. I've done a Word repair which did nothing to help and am frustrated and at a loss what to do next. Can anyone solve this problem, any ideas?

A:Windows Updates And Office 2010

It looks to me more likely to be a problem with the website - it appears to be written in compliance with IE versions 6, 7, and 8 rather than more modern ones.
Having said that, it seems to be a Wordpress-based site - so if the version has been updated properly, then it should be compliant with later versions of IE as well. As far as I can tell, it's based on v4.2.1, which is the latest version.

However, Word itself is notoriously bad at interpreting HTML (and even worse at writing it).

What are you attempting to do? can you show screenshots of what you're seeing?

Three months ago, I uninstalled Office 2010 and installed Office 2013.

Yet Windows Update keeps sending me updates to Office 2010. Why?

(I have Windows 7 x64 if that matters.)

The only legacy Office thing I have left on my machine is something called "Microsoft Office Small Business Connectivity Components." I was afraid to uninstall it because I didn't know what it did. What does it do, and can I safely uninstall it?

But Windows Update keeps sending me updates to Microsoft Office 2010, so I'm wondering if that could be the reason?

A:Office 2010 uninstalled but still getting Windows Updates

"Microsoft Office Small Business Connectivity Components" probably accompanied Office 2010 and I think as long as it's on the computer the updates will see it.

I'm reinstalling windows 7 and whenever I install office 2010 and select the option to 'Install updates only' on first running it, it always re-enables windows auto update and tries to download a bunch of updates. It does this even when wireless or the router is off.
I therefore get a bunch of failed updates in my history and the shutdown option tells me it's going to install updates when I shutdown. Is there anyway to stop this from happening?

We are wanting to up-grade our current Office suite Office 2003 to either Office 2010 or Office 2013.  Our PC's are running Windows 7
I would just like to know what peoples opinions and advice is on this?

A:Up-grade from Office 2003 to Office 2010 or Office 2013

 I can't speak to Office 2013, but I've done numerous upgrades to Office through 2010.  When you install the new version, you have the option to keep the old version or just replace it.  Starting with Office 2007 the familiar menu bar has been replaced with the ribbons which take a lot of getting used to for folks used to older versions.  There's a little program called UbitMenu that will add most of the menu bar functions back in the 2007 and 2010 versions that a lot of folks find helpful.  If you do opt to have two different versions installed at the same time, what happens is that when you switch from one to the other, it goes through a juggling act that takes a minute or so.  It's a bit of a pain, but if you need it, it could be a convenience.
Good luck.

As the title says, Installing Office 2010 broke windows update on my Windows 8. I have a Genuine Windows 8 Key from Dreamspark and had recently installed Windows 8. I could install every update (5 updates to be precise) before installing Office 2010. By immediately after Office 2010 completed installation I always check and download Office updates, Surprisingly this time I was greeted with "WindowsUpdate_8024402F" "WindowsUpdate_dt000" After doing a bit of advanced Google search I found out that the error may be related to any one the the following

1. This issue may occur when you are using proxy sever or router : I don't use a proxy server. I checked and checked. So this is really not what broke Windows update.

2. You may encounter temporary connection-related errors when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates : Nope. I'm always connected. Not this too.

3. It might also mean that a program running on your computer is preventing Windows Update Services from accessing the Internet. Programs that might do this include firewalls, antispyware software, web accelerators, Internet security or antivirus programs, or proxy servers : This has to be it! But the only program that I have installed right now is Google Chrome, CCleaner, Picasa, K-lite Mega Codec pack, AND Office 2010. That's it. Since i was able to install updates before installing Office 2010 I'm pretty sure it was responsible for me to rant about it here!

That looks like the screen you get from an Standard User account, rather than an Admin account.

I can tell you categorically that Office didn't make the changes you're seeing there. It may however be malware.

Please download and install Malwarebytes Anti-malware (free version) from http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/ - UNtick 'Enable free trial of MBAM Premium' at the end of the installation - and update it, then run a full scan in your main account, and Quick scans in any other user accounts.

What version of Office are you using?. If you are using Office 2013 updates do not show in the usual Windows Updates at all. Office 2013 updates occur automatically in the background. You can set Updates by opening one of the Office applications, select File & then select Office Account & you will see a box saying Office Updates click on that & drop down menu will show some Update alternatives & you can get it to Update Now if you wish to see if you are up to date. See attached screen shot.

You can check in Control Panel, Programs & Features, Microsoft Office 2013 to see when the last update version was installed & it series number.

As I shut my machine down last night Windows informed me it was doing 15 updates, which I allowed it to do.

This morning, the machint took a little extra time to boot up, I guess because it was finalising configurations.

Now I see all my icons for Word/ Excel in the folders and on Desktop have turned orange. When I click on a Word/ Excel Icon I get a dialogue box promting me to Activate an already purchased copu of Office 2010, Go online to purchase, or Try Office free for a limited time.

I have tried a Repair on Office 2010 Starter, but that has made no difference.

I am, however, able to open the documents by opening the application (Word/ Excel) and searching for the documents via the application's Open dialogue box.

Does anybody know what I need to do to fix this?

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"):

In addition, MS Office 2010 is indicated as non-affected by a vulnerability which affects previous versions of MS Office:

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:

I finally upgraded from MS Office 2002 to Office 2010, and all of my Word documents were automatically converted to wps files. In addition, when I download Word documents not created in Word 2010, they default to wps files. I can work around the problem manually to pull up older Word files in new Word, but it's incredibly annoying that any workaround is necessary. (Incidentally, when I try using the "open as" box with downloaded files, Word 2010 does not appear as one of the options.) I've been using Word for many years and have no need or desire to switch to MS Works. Please advise!

I'm on Windows 7 Enterprise SP1.

I have Office 2013 Professional Plus.

Whenever I check Windows Update for updates, it never seems to bring up updates for Office.  I assume there have been at least some updates to Office 2013 since it was released?

My Windows Update screen tells me:

"You receive updates: For Windows only."

When I click the "Find out more" to get updates for other MS products, all that happens is the IE opens up on a page that says "Use your Start menu to check for updates"

So... how do I get Windows Update to check for updates to Office 2013?  I feel very confused--I mean, shouldn't I be able to set Windows Update to check for updates for a whole host of MS programs (Silverlight, .NET, Office, etc.)?
I've tried changing the Windows Update settings to include other Microsoft products but there's no option to do so when I check.

Any insight would be appreciated! Someone recommended I ask here because I'm on Windows 7 Enterprise.

A:Windows Update won't find updates for Office 2013?

So the thing that finally worked was installing Silverlight, which apparently can force Windows Update to include/adopt Microsoft update.  Once that was installed, Windows Update recognized a huge number of Office updates.

Why no other avenues to make the Microsoft Update option show up and get it "switched on" worked is totally beyond me.

How can I get Windows update to find new updates for Office 2007? I've set automatic update to never/manual and unchecked "give reccomended same way as important". Yet, when I click "find updates", there are no items for Office 2007. This is a new install of O2007 btw, wth just the SP3 applied, nothing else.

This is someone else's screen shot. My system only shows two options, none of which involve other MS products...

(Btw, I have installed all other updates up till this month, so I'm pretty sure my update agent is up to date, just that it's not showing all four of those options)

A:Office 2007 updates not showing

Thought I hijack this thread rather than create a new one, but I just did a clean install of 7 and installed office 07, but I am having the same problem. I am not given the option for microsoft updates at all. I've never had this problem before. Is there something that I installed incorrectly perhaps? I do a custom install of office and only use word and excel and leave the other office tools, but I may have accidentally turned something off. Could that be a reason?

So I used to have Office 2007. I completely removed it, i'm talking using windows installer cleanup, deleting registry files, every program file related to it in so many places on my computer. Then I installed 2010 beta.

But three updates for Office 2007 keep showing up in Windows Update. its one for the junk email filter and two other security updates. I know I can hide them, and I did that, but in the back of my mind, hiding isn't good enough for me. Its bugging me that I can't make it so they won't show up anymore. Any Ideas?

A:Office 2007 Updates keep showing up..

just go ahead and let them install . Since office 2010 is still beta it may use some 2007 files.

I have a Lenove G570 laptop with Windows 7 and Office 2010 64-bit. I have set it to automatically install all windows and Microsoft updates

Since about two weeks ago, microsoft keeps trying to install an Office 2010 32-bit update, and I assume that because the 32-bit version is not on my machine, it cannot complete the update, and so tries again the next day. My update history now has 13 copies of "update for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB2825635) 32-bit edition" All show the status as "successful" I might add that in my list of installed updates, the 64-bit edition of the same update is installed successfully.

I looked on the forum, and see that "brokenhead" had a similar problem in Feb 2011, which he resolved. I visited the website he used to fix his program (http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/91738-windows-update-reset.html#post790804), and tried options 1,2 and 3 without the desired results.

Anyone have an idea what I should do?

Hi everybody
If you've ever re-installed W7 recently (or office 2010) there's a myriad of updates that can take a long time (I think around 1 GB of downloads if you include Office).

Is it possible like we did with XP to "Slipstream" the Service packs and updates into W7 and an Office install media.

Would be useful - but haven't seen any mention of this.

Office 2010 sp1 is a separate download and W7 retail doesn't always have SP1 included.

Any ideas folks.

I was trying to install updates on my wife's computer for office 2010, when I received a message that updates failed. On going back to previous updates, I realized, that none of the updates had installed. I immediately checked to make sure the office setup exe file was enabled, and it was. Windows updates install just not office updates. (Amd 64 dual-core 6 gb ram 2 itb hdd. windows vista home premium 64-bit). What can I do to get these updates to install? Event viewer gives this output: Product: Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 -- Error 1606. Could not access network location %APPDATA%\.I also got a error code:80070643. What do I need to do to get the updates to install?
