    Word 2007 Template and Windows 7 problem

    I have Office 2007 installed on three computers: two are Windows 7 (64 bit), and one is Windows XP.

    Occasionally I will search for a new template for a New Document. These are almost all listed under 'Microsoft Office Online' in the left hand column.

    Today when I tried to select one, I got the message 'to use online templates, please update Office'. (see attached) This problem happened on both my Windows 7 computers.

    Just out of curiosity, I fired up my XP, and opened Word 2007 there. It does NOT get the 'update' message, and I can access all the Microsoft Office Online templates just fine! So I was able to solve my problem by downloading what I wanted from my XP and transferring them to my Win 7 computer.

    Upon searching further, I found that MS15-081 (KB2596650) was required to fix this problem. But KB2596650 is already installed on both my Windows 7 computers, so at least in my case, that did not do it! I searched around the Microsoft website, but could not find anymore information on this.

    Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, what is the solution?

    Thanks in advance,
