How do I install Office updates?

Postby Hertyr » 07.01.2018, 15:39

Hello, I downloaded a lot of updates for Office 2016, but the update installer doesn't install them. How to install them? I'm using windows 10.

General info on Office (2013+): viewtopic.php?f=7&t=3724
You should check whether or not you have a "normal" Office or a Click2Run one. WSUS Offline only contains updates for the normal one which is almost only used in Enterprise environments (volume licensing). In other words: You most likely have a Click2Run Office that isn't supported by WSUS Offline.

@WSUSUpdateAdmin:
Maybe it's time to change something in regards to Office in WSUS Offline to make clear that it doesn't support the Click2Run stuff.

I'm using Office for students, the .edu account one. The post you linked is a bit complicated in me, but I'll try to dig my way through it, thank you.

Do the following, to check, if you're using a Click2Run version of Office:
Press Windows Key & R.
Enter "appwiz.cpl" (without quotes).
Press OK.
Go to your Office installation.
Click "Modify".
Compare the screen with the picture shown in this post.
