Beware of Office 2010 Updates!


 Share

Recommended Posts


They probably do know, but they don't care and now won't fix it, although I'm assuming Office 2010 is supported until next year.
They would just say that none of their software is now supported on Windows XP, even if it was when it was originally released.
I doubt that Office was ever officially supported on POSReady 2009, as that OS variant wasn't designed for that sort of use in the first place!

Yeah POSReady 2009 is prohibited by its licensing agreement from running "Office productivity applications":

Well KB4462223 certainly is, as it contains an XP-incompatible version of MSO.DLL.
Not sure about KB4462177. According to its security bulletin, it only replaces graph.exe, a file that doesn't seem to exist on my system except in the MSOCache folder, which I think is just a store of Office update files. Maybe it's part of one of the Office components that I don't have installed?
:dubbio:

As far as I'm aware, KB4462223 is the only update which should be avoided, as it contains the latest incompatible version of MSO.DLL.
All the others should be OK.
:yes:

Sounds like M$, uh, "forgot" that Office 2010 is supposed to run on Windows XP. I bet the updates are fine if you're on Win 7. (Vista could go either way, I suppose; someone will just have to try them and see.)

newer MSO.DLL updates for Office 2010 are okay for Vista as v6.0.6002.x of the kernel32.dll file (even Vista SP2 RTM like 6.0.6002.18005) does include the GetDateFormatEx function as I checked this myself using Dependency Walker (depends.exe).  minimum requirement for Office 2010 on Vista is Vista SP1 though

seems like the safe version for XP users is still the KB4092483 mso.dll security update from Oct. 2018.

Can't install neither KB4464567 nor KB4464524. Any tips?

I have both updates installed. Most likely you have installed the update of the system KB4494528, but the tweak is not done. You need to execute the command "regsvr32 MSI.DLL" in the command line. After this update should be installed.
