    Well... I will be honest with you: Office 2016 (versions and builds) genuinely confuse me!

    Here is a screenshot from my Outlook 2016, taken seconds ago. I have uninstalled and then re-installed my Office suite today, due to an error I kept getting, Outlook was asking for my credentials almost each time I run it!

    Anyway... The screenshot:

    Can someone, please, answer me for following?

    - Why am I not seeing anywhere "Product Activated" when my product is indeed Activated?!
    - Why am I not seeing the version and the build number, like in Brink's screenshot, for example?
    - Will I get this update?

    My Office is the standalone (desktop) version of Office. I do not have a 365 subscription and I have never-ever logged in with my MS account.

    Thank you.

    EDIT: thanks A LOT, Brink, for removing my e-mail address, Jesus! I do not know how I have missed that...

    I've upgraded to this version [7967.2139] and saw this new feature documented:

    Saving a document as a PDF saves the document as a version 1.7 PDF.

    I create PDFs all the time and decided to test this feature. When I made a PDF the version is still showing version 1.5 in my PDF reader.

    Does anybody else suffer from this problem?

    • Try signing-in to Office using 'Sign In' from your screenshot to show more information and/or receive updates.



    • Not all SKUs of Microsoft Office show the 'Product Activated' notice. You only need to worry if you get the following warning:

    There's probably an update policy regarding perpetual versions of Office but the rule of thumb is that you're not entitled to any upgrades. An upgrade is a major jump, an update is an incremental jump.

    You'll continue to get updates (security and basic bug-fixes) but you'll be left on your own when it comes to upgrades (i.e. one version to the next).

    I'd have thought that you'd get all updates for Office 2016 but that these will cease (except security updates) once its successor (e.g. Office 2017/2018/2019) is released.

    Here are two resources which may help you:


    1. https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Version-and-build-numbers-of-update-channel-releases-ae942449-1fca-4484-898b-a933ea23def7?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US
    2. https://support.office.com/en-us/art...rs=en-US&ad=US




    Office 2016 is also sold as a one-time purchase, which means you pay a single, up-front cost to get Office applications for one computer. One-time purchases are available for both PCs (such as Office Home & Student 2016) and Macs (such as Office Home & Student 2016 for Mac). One-time purchases don’t have an upgrade option, which means if you plan to upgrade to the next major release, you'll have to buy it at full price.
    It's one of the reasons I never recommend standalone licenses to people. It's cheaper to buy a subscription to Office and get all of the updates and functionality associated with Office 365.

    Mine updated to 1703 7967-2139 just fine. I had tried the fast insider ring office but it was too buggy for my work.
