Beware of Office 2010 Updates!

Recommended Posts

Can't install neither KB4464567 nor KB4464524. Any tips? A manual install of the former doesn't work. I couldn't be bothered trying the other one. Cheers guys.

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.

Update 4464567 installed OK today but had to remove 4461614 which caused the usual problem.

KB4462223 is the latest broken update, from April.
KB4461614 is an older version, not that this helps at all of course!

I have found a good fix for this issue after lot's of testing.:cheerleader:

First backup your current MSO.DLL from C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE14 and then install the broken KB4462223, after your done, go back to the directory and place your backed  MSO.DLL to the same directory and by overriding (or you can back it if you want) it and hooray! Office 2010 works again!:D

Yes, of course; but what's the point? The only file updated by KB4462223 is mso.dll, so you're just installing the update then essentially uninstalling it again.

Might as well just hide it and not install it to start with.

I half agree with you. But it's atleast something then having a broken office install, after all.

Indeed so, and surely if you put the old MSO.DLL back, Microsoft Update will just nag you to install the patch again?!

Interesting, I always assumed that MS Update looked at the file versions on the system to determine if an update was needed, perhaps it doesn't!
I'll give it a try, it would be nice to have a "clean" MS Update without the nag that I've hidden an important update.

Dave-H, did it work for you too?

Amazingly, and against all my expectations, yes it did!
:thumbup
I copied MSO.DLL to a temporary folder, reinstalled KB4462223 via Microsoft Update (which resulted in the Office programs failing), and then put the original MSO.DLL back.
Office is now working again, and MS Update is no longer telling me that I've hidden an important update, and when I scan again it says I'm up to date!
Thank you very much indeed @Nojus2001, great result!
:yes:

I'm not surprised. I would expect MS Update to read the list of Updates in the Registry rather than opening a lot of files, some of which could be locked.
