  1. Windows Office 2016/2017


    My Windows Office 2016 subscription expires this month.
    I need to renew but I was wondering when 2017 is going to be released.
    I searched online but I found a lot of stuff on 2016, but nothing for 2017.
    It probably won't be released this month but I thought I would check, because I don't want to buy it this week and have a new version come out next week.

    I don't think MSFT does this for Office like they do for Windows 10, but if we purchase an Office product and there are changes during the year, do they issue updates? I don't recall any.


    If they issue 2017 after I buy the 2016 version does it get updated when they release the new version? I don't think they do, but I thought I would ask.

    Many thanks!

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Pro and Office 2016 Updates

    1. Yes.

    1b. Have you run a manual check for updates since c. 1:00 PM (Pacific), 13 Jun-17? It can take several days for automatic update to bring 'em in.

    2. This suggests Office 2016 was fully-patched as of the 12th.

    3. One assumes so, especially if no futher updates for Office (or Windows) are offered. cf.

    4. Did you purchase MS Office 2016 or Office 365?

    5. Who manufactured the computer & when (approx. date) did you buy it?

  3. Windows 10 Pro and Office 2016 Updates

    I need a better understanding of how Windows 10 Pro and Office 2016 updates interact. I have a new Windows 10 Pro machine (version 1703, O/S Build 15063.413).
    It has Office 2016 on it. I also have a Window 7 machine, with Office 2007 on it.
    I am familiar with how Windows Update automatically updates the Windows 7 O/S in addition to updating Office 2007 at the same time. However, I am not completely familiar with how Windows Update updates Office 2016 on a Windows 10 Pro machine.
    I have a few questions in conjunction with some of the settings that are in effect.



    1. At Settings > Update & Security (aka Windows Update) > Advanced Options (under Update settings), I have the box checked for “Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows”.
    Is a check in this box supposed to give me the security updates to Office 2016??
    I ask because:



    a. When I check the installed updates at Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features > Installed Updates, I do not see any Office 2016 updates listed there.
    I only see the current updates for Windows 10, Version 1703 O/S (all with the date of June 13, 2017).



    b. At Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features > Installed Updates, I do not see any of the Office 2016 updates that are listed at

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4023935/june-13-2017-update-for-microsoft-office
    , where 18 updates are displayed, 8 of them with a June 13, 2017 date and 10 of them listed with a June 6, 2017 date.
    Should I be seeing most of
    these Office 2106 updates listed in my Installed Updates, since I have the box in 1) above checked?
    [I use Outlook, Powerpoint, Word, & Excel; I do not use Skype or Visio].



    2. I can open Word 2016 or Excel 2016, create a file, click on the File tab, click on Account on the left, click on About Word, and see the current version.
    Before step 3 below, I saw that I had 16.0.8067.2115 (*released May 18, 2017).



    3. I can also click on Update Options > Update Now. After I clicked on Update Now, I checked About Word again, and saw that the version changed to 16.0.8201.2102 (*released June 13, 2017).



    a. Does this June 13 version incorporate the most recent Office 2016 security updates (i.e., the ones listed at the link in 1b)?
    Or is it just a new build that has added features but not any security updates?



    b. If it does not include the most recent Office 2016 security updates (or as a matter of fact, any security updates dating back to when I first installed Office 2016), how do I manage to get the Office
    2016 on my machine updated with all of the necessary Office 2016 security updates (since I do not see any Office 2016 security updates at Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features > Installed Updates)?




    4. I am fairly certain that I am a non-subscriber of Office 365.
    How can I tell for sure?

    Windows Office 2016/2017

    Office is not updated to a new version every year - for Windows was 2010, then 2013 then 2016.

    If you get a subscription now you will get 2016 (plus latest updates) and it will automatically update to latest version whenever it is released (assuming your subscription is still valid).
