Windows 7: receiving Office 2007 updates but have got Office 2010 installed

19 Jul 2011   #11

Win2k, Xp Pro, 7 Enterprise

Hi, yes I have all the "Office Tools" and "Office Shared Features" installed. Is this why?! That makes sense--if I install the components to view/edit Office 2007 products, then I would be offered the updates for those components. Thanks for the feedback! I can now install the updates.

I have Office 2010 and never any other Office product but was receiving 2007 updates. Uninstalling the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack (which I didn't realize was installed) put a stop to the update notices.

I believe these updates are to protect you from old malicious documents that use the .doc format instead of the new docx.
