    Re-Enabling Office 2007 local Help pages


    I'm another old scrooge happy with what I've bought and paid for (Win 10 + Office 2007)
    but very displeased when MS seems to interfere with what formerly worked long after retirement in 2017.

    I was quite happy with the local help available in my older fully installed version.
    I very rarely need it, but "rarely" is a long way short of "Never".

    If I pressed f1, I used to see something like
    "No help available online... Do buy Office 365 or use local help"
    Now I get "No [local] help available" in the LH pane, which is just not true.

    I set Flight mode, removed my Ethernet cable, and pressed f1
    Lo and behold...

    So, local Help IS available. All I want to do is not visit a certain MS Website
    To do this I think I need its IP address and loop it back on the LMHosts file?

    My questionsWill this work? WHat would be the dangers (if any?)
    How can I discover the IP address resulting from my Office F1 keypress
    I would be happy to report back if it seems to work

    :)

    Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007

    This is my list of installed Office 2007 updates [Control panel, Programs & features, View installed updates]

    Re-Enabling Office 2007 local Help pages [​IMG]

    - I have installed Office 2007 Word, Excel, PowerPoint & Access.
    - If you have installed other Office 2007 components you will find others shown in your own list of installed updates [once you are fully up to date].

    I suggest saving copies of each one now in case they are ever removed from the MS update catalog downloads lists.
    https://www.catalog.update.microsoft...?q=Office+2007
    - Just download the updates shown in your own list of installed updates rather than the whole list provided by the MS update catalog because the catalog includes ones that were subsequently superceded by others.
    - SP3, which was a major update that established a new beginning for Office 2007 and upon which all further updates were based, is also described in https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/2526086 and the article also provides a download link for it
    - If I reinstall Office, I work through the updates list in KB numerical order starting with SP3
