Microsoft Office February 2018 Patch Day

Microsoft released non-security updates for the Office suites Microsoft Office 2010, Microsoft Office 2013, and Microsoft Office 2016 on the February 2018 Office Patch Day.

The first Tuesday of each month is Office Patch Day at Microsoft but the company limits the releases to non-security updates. Security updates follow on the second Tuesday of each month.

Please note that the updates apply not to click-to-run installations of Microsoft Office, for instance Office 365 Home, but only to msi-installer-based editions.

I recommend that you don't install the updates directly unless you are affected by one of the described issues.

      A question : is Office 2007 abandoned (no longer maintained) ? There was an update at the end of 2017

      1. John Fenderson said on February 9, 2018 at 1:23 am

        It looks like Office 2007 reached end of life and became unsupported on October 10, 2017.

        1. Pierre said on February 9, 2018 at 5:06 am

          Thks for your answer
          Yes but there was several security updates on Office 2007 on 01/08/2018 in Windows 10 and others, I guess. It was the reason of my question.
          This time it seems there was not. Cf. the article
          A lot of people still have and use Office 2007 or maybe older versions. Recent versions are too expensive and they are not informed about the existence of LibreOffice.
          Before, some people installed illegal, and not maintained, of course, versions of Office, I don’t know if this possibility still exists

      Thanks like every month for this not only well written, highly informative but also ferry helpful article.
      Do I understand it correctly that Windows Office 2010 has an update lifespan from two more years?

        Yes, that is right Paulus.
