View Full Version : MS Office 2007 problem.

04-01-2016, 09:50 AM
I am rebuilding WIN7 on a PC. I installed Office 2007 and activated the program. However, I mis-answered the question as to"do you want to check for updates". I answered no. Even after a System Restore I am still blocked from obtaining updates. I have reinstalled the program three times and still cannot get an update. Any ideas please?

In Windowsupdate make sure give me updates for other MS products is ticked if the option is there

No, no such option.

Control panel>Windows Update>Change settings (at top left)

Tried that but will not bring up other MS products, only Windows7.

According to this. (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Update-Office-and-your-computer-with-Microsoft-Update-2ab296f3-7f03-43a2-8e50-46de917611c5)

In an Office 2007 application, like Word 2007, choose Microsoft Office Button Office button image > Word Options > Resources > Check for Updates.

From what I have found, the latest updater is Microsoft Update. This super-cedes the Windows update which seems to be no longer available. Everytime I try to invoke MS updates I get pushed off to Windows updates which tell me that there are no updates available. I have loaded Office 2007 too often before and know that there are further updates. It looks like I will need to format the partition of Win7 and start again, or else,forget Office and use Kingsoft!

Uninstall it then use the tool to remove the rest of it (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/928218), then try again

Speedy you are bloody brilliant. Easyfix worked like a charm and with a little careful follow on after the reinstall, everything is loading well. Instead of just receiving windows updates, I see that I also now get "other microsoft product updates". Thanks a million and happy New Year.
