    • It can sometimes be better to just add a new post correcting the original statements in case you get any replies to the pre-editing version that you only notice afterwards & can therefore misinterpret.

    I have just found another awkward one. In the Microsoft update catalog, KB4011276 'Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites' appears twice. If you click on any update title you will see a dialog box with further details that can often help to distinguish between different updates. In this particular case, the detail to note is the internet address of the dialog box because it contains the update ID.
    • For languages zh & cn [Czech & Chinese?] the relevant one is UpdateID 0ced4961-cba1-4709-9272-3836f431902b and is 232KB
    • For English language versions [and, I assume, all others except zh & cn], the relevant one is UpdateID c9ee365f-223a-4d87-8255-44df5738b88b and is 233KB
    • If you try to download both at the same time, one will overwrite the other so you can either choose the right one or download one, rename its folder then go back to the catalog & download the other.

    Let's hope Office 2007 still has useful life left in it.

    It seems they're pushing this new "Office 365", for which you pay forever and ever and ever and ever.
    No thanks! I'll keep my Office 2007.

    You could instead buy Office 2016 ... but that's in the $350 - $400 range.
    Once again ... no thanks!

    Office 2007 rules!

    Will old or existing updates (published before October, 2017) still be available through Windows Update after support ends?

    I need to do a clean reinstall of Windows 10 and all of my existing programs (Office 2007, etc.), but I may not have time to do that until late October -- which will be after support ends for Office 2007.

    Have you done your reinstall yet? If not, I have some reassuring news for you.

    I have today (30th November) had cause to do a factory reset on a Windows 7 PC that came with Office 2007 preinstalled by the OEM as a 60-day trial. The factory image predated Win7 SP1, so it gives you an idea how old it was.

    Despite not activating Office 2007, or even starting the trial, the fact that it was installed was sufficient for windows update to install every Office 2007 update that was missing. Several iterations were required to get them all, it seems some early updates may be prerequisites for the later ones.

    The last iteration of checking for updates installed 38 Office 2007 updates which, as far as I can see, brings it fully up to date.

    Hi Bree... Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, I have not reinstalled Office 2007 yet. It's still on my to-do list; but hopefully, soon.. Your news is reassuring. Thanks again.

    Office 2007 Updates are by today automatiically installed for every new 2007 installation, as before. Question is how long. But since even now 2003 updates are still delivered, I think it will go on for longer.

    For a version of Office that's supposedly out of support since October, 2007 still seems to get regular security updates. Here's the latest one, issued 12th December.
