Windows 7: Has my Office 2013 updated to SP1?. How to check.

Has my Office 2013 updated to SP1?. How to check.

MS Office announced on 25 Feb that Office 2013 Service Pack 1 was available & would be installed over the next month. I was alerted to this from a "News" item by Brink on this Forum, so I have been checking on whether mine had updated. Apparently it had not & it is not really easy to check whether the update has occurred so here is how you can check.

Firstly, open one of your Office programs & select "File", then select "Account" then refer to this screen shot.


If you have been using Auto updating, Close this Office program & then open "Control Panel" select "Programs & Features" & scroll down to Microsoft Office 2013 & check the Installed date & the version. Write down this version number & then refer to this MS website. If the installed date is after the 25 Feb 2014 it may already have the SP1 installed, but use the website to check.

Description of Microsoft Office 2013 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Read through it to see if you have SP1 installed & if not how to download & install it, if you want to.
If you decide to download the SP1 update make sure you select the right version for your Office installation, that is the 32 or 64 bit. Note that this applies the version of Office & not what version of Windows you are using.

To check whether you have the 32 bit or 64 bit version of Office installed, see the above screen shot & just below the Office Updates & in this example see About Excel. Click on that & it will open a window which will have the version listed up the top.

Scrolling right the bottom of the MS website lists all the Office 2013 versions this SP1 applies to.
