Office 2007 Compatibility Pack Updates?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have Office XP (2002) installed on my netbook, which is dual boot Windows XP SP3 and Windows 8.1.
It's installed on both operating systems sharing the same Program Files subfolder.
I have the Office 2007 Compatibility Pack installed as well, which is installed in different folders on the two operating systems.
Now updates for this have ended, I am now wondering what the final updates for it were.
The reason I ask is because for quite a while before EOS I was getting updates for the compatibility pack through Microsoft Update on Windows XP, but not on Windows 8.1.
This has resulted in the Windows 8.1 installation being out of date relative to the Windows XP installation.
Does anyone know what the last update files were for the compatibility pack, for all of its files?
If I can find that information I can (hopefully!) download the updates from the Microsoft Update Catalogue and install them on Windows 8.1 to bring it up to date.
Thanks, Dave.
:)

I long for a time people stop saving as docx and save as .doc. there are zero gains from the docx format over doc (regarding MS word)

I do use the compatibility pack on XP to open docx. All this itteration bullcrap will one day be looked back upon by future generations and viewed as pretty dumb and unecessary.  The only reason for software updates is mortages and hungry mouths. period.

 

FYI I just use FileFormatConverters.exe from MS website. never had a problem using MSo 2003 thus far  ;)

Wow, thank you so much @actinium, and sorry for the delay in my acknowledgement, I didn't get any e-mail notification of your post!
So, those 13 cab files are the latest (and last) versions of all the 2007 Compatibility Pack updates, and the exe files in OneDrive_2019-05-19.zip are the same thing just in a different format?
:dubbio:
I already have the KB2526297 SP3 installation file.
Do I need the file format converters file, which is the other one that says it's missing from the zip file, due to having been too large?
:dubbio:

@Dave-H The Full list for Office 2007 Compatibility Pack link, is a .rar file with name Office 2007 Compatibility Pack.rar, not a zip file.
On the OneDrive page, click on the download word in the top left corner, without selecting a file :)
I do not know why OneDrive behaves like that!!!

Name: Office 2007 Compatibility Pack.rar
Size: 144.776.119 bytes
Number of files: 16 (.exe)
sha1:  EFCCC102FE05AB6E1933373A4E5432B55EA45071

Do the same with the cab pack.
Name: Office 2007 Compatibility Pack cab.rar
Number of files: 13 (.cab)
Size: 45.627.906 bytes
sha1: 1C710831E827E3C8A6E7DAD921C2016AB86D1CEB

Those 13 updates are the latest and last versions of all the 2007 Compatibility Pack updates.
The 13 .exe files and the 13 .cab files are the same updates just in a different format.

The FileFormatConverters.exe file is the "Office 2007 Compatibility Pack",
the compatibilitypacksp3-kb2526297-fullfile-en-us.exe file is just the sp3.
The second does not run unless the first one is installed.

For what it's worth, I had OFfice 2003 installed for years and kept on top of the compatibility pack updates...  One day, one of the updates broke Office and I said to heck with it and moved on to 2010 with a classic menu add-on.

I would like to use this opportunity to say that only the very first version (no SP) of the compatibility pack is compatible with Windows 2000 (vanilla; haven't tried later ones with the extended kernel). This version is no longer available from Microsoft though.

So I wouldn't bother with updates in that case.

Edited by win32
even newer information :(

I use both MS Office 2003 (with compatibility pack installed) and MS Office 2010, with all updates installed,
on the same system (Win7/Win10) without any problem.

The next test with both Office will be on WinXP.

For everyday use, I use Office 2003 :)

According to microsoft, the FileFormatConverters (Version 1) is compatible with Windows 2000 sp4.

Thanks for finding that. That is the version 1 that they kept tucked away nicely enough that DDG didn't index it.

I don't often come across docx or xlsr files most i ocme across are still in old format

i quite agree there is No gains from one to another

all i see it as it is a update/upgrade for the sake of it to make more money

Sorry again for the late response @actinium.
Yes, it was indeed a .rar file, sorry for the confusion.
I actually repackaged it as a zip file myself!
The Office 2007 Compatibility Pack.rar file wouldn't actually open with my old copy of WinRAR, it said it was corrupted, but it does open with 7-Zip.
Thanks very much again!
:worship:

The Microsoft link to the Format Converters file indeed doesn't work, but that file and all the others are in the packages @actinium has pointed to in the second post of the thread.

I don't think it adds any features; just bug / security fixes
