Hey Brink…. Good info. Thanks for the reminder.
Question for you….. Do you think that old, or existing, Office 2007 updates will still be available through Windows Update after 10/10/17 if they\’re needed?
I need to do a clean reinstall of Windows and my all of my programs (Office 2007, etc.), but I may not have time to do that until late October…. which will be after support ends for Office 2007.
I\’ll need to patch Office 2007 with all of its old updates after the reinstall, but I don\’t know if they\’ll show up in Windows Update or if I have to search and download them from Microsoft\’s Update Catalog.
