    O2k & O2007

    Hello. I have now 4 machines on 9926. Two of them are receiving WUs fine and even better than expected, I mean that they have received WUs for O2007 that is not installed here, I use O2K on all my machines. This WU to 2007 was accepted by O2K and now I can use, read and save any text, from .doc to .docx. Great.
    My two Toshiba laptops are not so blessed. I keep "Checking for Updates", no joy. Here is what the two desktops have received.

    I have the KB xxxxx for the required WUs as can be seen in this .jpg, and others too pertaining to this update of O2007. How can I "force" them to D/L and install ? The numbers are :

    KB2956098
    KB2984939
    KB2956106
    kb2956107
    KB2956188 and others. If I go to the MS site and ask for any of them, I get a dialogue saying that the "destination" was not found, this on the Toshiba. They were found on the desktop. Have a great day. Jean.

    To get updates for the compatibility pack you must first have it installed on the two systems that are not getting those updates.

    Hello.
    Nice suggestion but it had been tried before. Here is what I get if I click on your URL :

    And it does not go any further. Thanks anyway. Jean.

    Click on "No thanks and continue"

    MS is trying to be helpful by offering additional downloads it thinks may be useful to you!

    Good morning, Browni.
    Thanks for the further help. Be aware that the black screen that I placed in my previous post locks me out. It freezes my Toshiba. Yes, I can see this "No Thanks and Continue" through the black, if I hit it, the black screen goes away but the prompt also does go away. I have done the Updates to O2K, 1,2 & 3 but no gain !
    My 4 machines are twins as far as OS's are concerned, all are on 9926. The only difference is in the HDW, my feeble mind would like to think that the important item here would be software. I never asked for these O2K updates but accepted them as they are a large plus to my way of using the two desktops that got updated. Why not the Toshiba ?
    Again, your intervention is appreciated. Best wishes. Jean.

    Do you have a non-beta system to try on?

    Things can and will go wrong when using pre-release software (and afterwards as well!)

    Have you used the feedback tool to report the issue to Microsoft?

    Good evening.

    [QUOTE=Browni;991414]Do you have a non-beta system to try on?

    I have two desktops that are also on 9926 and both of them got updated to Office 2007, no problem. I can see or save .docx on these two. I wish that I knew what is preventing the Toshiba to be recipient of the same update .

    All the best. Jean.

    I have tried this a few times and nogo. I always get the black screen. Both desktops were fine. Strange ! Jean.

    Jean,

    I may have a tie-in for you. I used to have a Toshiba laptop. I had considered putting it to Win8.0 (@ the time). The MS Compatibility Tool mostly said ok but, pointed to Toshiba's site for one aspect of things. However, there, my particular model was not of their list for Win8 supported units. It may be along similar lines w/ those Toshiba laptops. I seem to recall had something to do w/ video or display. The PCs may be "identical" in all being 9926 but, are not all Toshiba laptops... and both that are have the identical issue; hmmmm.

    And, also, for me (9926) that link gives this...

    Cheers,
    Drew

    Good morn, Drew.
    Yes, here also, the link gave the same site but after clicking on the "Download", the black filter on the presentation appeared and I could go no further. On the two desktops, I met with success and the Office 2007 was accepted.
    Now, I am toying with the idea of cloning a desktop to a laptop, yes, daring, I am. Seems to me that no EULA is present so far in 9926. I will keep you up on this activity.
    All best wishes. Jean.
