    Office '03 on Windows 10 update error


    I know Microsoft is gonna hate this, but here goes. I have Office 2003 yeah, yeah which, after some dithering on my part, I decided to try to install on my Windows 10 laptop. It's just that 03 does all I need and I have older files in it's formats that I still need to work with. LibreOffice, despite it's claims, is not very compatible with Office files and I don't feel the need to pay for a subscription whatever happened to the good old days when you just freakin'bought a program? Now it's all subscription ****... gotta keep that revenue stream flowin'. to Office 365 for the minimal amount of document tasks that I do. Plus I'm not very smart and don't feel like tackling a new learning curve. Anywho, I installed it and it went, to my relief, surprisingly smoothly. I set compatibility modes for the programs in the Office package and all seems to be in order. It even successfully did a plethora of updates for Office. There is, however, one update which has tried to install several times but repeatedly errors out. I feel that this one update is probably redundant and/or defunct. All I want to do is remove it from the queue so that I don't constantly see it in Windows Update. The identifying info is as follows:


    Update for Office 2003 KB907417 - Error 0x80096004


    Thanks for any assistance.

    :)

    Office 2019

    Only supported on Win10. Sorry, 8.1 users, only 4 years old, gotta go.

    Microsoft Office 2019 will only work on Windows 10

    Spoiler Office 2019
    Last year at Ignite, we announced Office 2019 – the next perpetual version of Office that includes apps (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, and Skype for Business) and servers (including Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business). Today we’re pleased to share the following updates:

    • Office 2019 will ship in H2 of 2018. Previews of the new apps and servers will start shipping in the second quarter of 2018.
    • Office 2019 apps will be supported on:
      • Any supported Windows 10 SAC release
      • Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2018
      • The next LTSC release of Windows Server
    • The Office 2019 client apps will be released with Click-to-Run installation technology only. We will not provide MSI as a deployment methodology for Office 2019 clients. We will continue to provide MSI for Office Server products.
