    I am working with "Media Creation Tool" doing an upgrade online, hopefully it will work, going to take a while. That's kind of ridiculous for MS to lock you out of an update.
    Well, post back to let us know how it went. When MS locks you out of an update, it is because some configurations (drivers, settings, bugs or else) won't bode well with the update. In a way, it is to protect you from bigger issues. Cheers!

    M$ don't want to mess with me, I'll reset it out of spite.

    What really hurts with is MS Office's limited installs, if you reset, you will buy a new key.

    It depends on which version of Office you have. Last time, I used Office was Home & Student 2007 that I bought and it came with a Key. Now, I am with a subscribed Office 365 which I paid on an annual basis and been using it for the past 4-5 years. I wouldn't be having the problem you mentioned with reset.

    I have 2000, 2002, 2007 and 2010 with one install left and that will be the last for me, I run 2002 on three PCs and 2010 on two.

    The thing I still don't understand about your statement:
    "What really hurts with is MS Office's limited installs, if you reset, you will buy a new key. "
    is that once you have a Product Key, you are supposed to be able to activate your Office suite; unless, of course it is completely out of support.

    When you buy office, you buy a number of installs and when you get to that number, you have to pay for a new key to get another one. For instance, my 2010 had three installs and I have used two. If I use the third one, I don't get any more, unless I buy a new key.

    Not entirely true - you can remove one install and install somewhere else and still be in compliance. You're allowed 3 current, concurrent installs, no rules against moving a license to a different system as long as the old one no longer being used is deactivated/removed.

    Office isn't an OEM product normally

    I have heard this and done research on it and haven't found anyone that has got away with it, MS refuses a new install.

    Well the online update is just finishing up, so I should have a "report" in a few minutes.

    Doing the update was futile, it installed the bad update anyway so I will be resetting it.

    I was not even aware of all those changes about Office. Like I said, the last Office suite I used was the 2007 version probably for a 2-year period. After that, I subscribed to Office 365 as soon as it became available and I can use it on up to 6 computers + the 1TB cloud storage, which is not a bad deal, all things considered. If this is true about the limited number of times you can install the suite, I would find that absolutely ridiculous for lack of a better word.

    I am glad that I only have to pay an annual fee and forget about all these shenanigans. LOL
