    Supern00b: when you install Office, a log file will be created in your temp folder and if you scroll through it, you'll find info on what's happening to each of those updates. It'll say something like "installed" or "not applicable". It might give you more info on those problem updates.

    abbodi1406 has done amazing work in keeping the list of updates current so there should be no updates shown as needed in Windows Update, if everything installs successfully. If you're seeing 10 or more (or even just one) listed in WU afterwards, then something's not right.

    As abbodi1406 said, there are no updates that should be left out of the "updates" folder. All should be included. If one is not needed, Office will just skip over it and you'll see the "not applicable" info in that log file.

    As you said, there are a few updates that have their .MSP contained inside another internal compressed package (two layers deep in the update). Be sure to go into that second compressed package to extract out the .msp from those 5 or 6 updates that are like that. Or better, just let WHDownloader do the work for you: right-click at the bottom of WHDownloader and select "Office MSP Extractor". You can also have WHD do this automatically by setting the "ExtractMSP=" entry in the config.ini file to "True" (default is False).

    Security Update for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB4011618), replaces KB2553204

    i wonder why they didn't bundle all languages files into one patch, like proofing tools patch and other multilingual updates

    Thanks for replying abbodi1406 and PointZero.
    At least some of the doubts have been cleared up, on the next install I'll look at the Office log files to see if there are any errors.

    Cheers.

    both Office 2013/2016 should get new service pack, but i don't think this will happen

    Thanks PointZero, I used WHDownloader which downloaded lot of General, Hotfix and security updates for Office 2010.

    Since that thread is closed for posts, I'm asking here - now how can I apply all the updates (around 100 in total) in one go??

    Wonderful, managed to install all office updates. Also, similar to "InstallerOfficeV14d", is there any such script for applying "Windows updates" downloaded by WHDownloader? Sorry for asking too many.

    Many thanks!!

    Nice work from Abbodi1406 and the original author on the extract script, it worked better than WHD integrated MPS extractor.
    Just when I had all office updates downloaded, I tried the WHD msp extractor on the freshly downloaded updates, and it did exactly one single update.
    After that, WHDownloader deleted the whole source.

    So I downloaded the whole set again and used the script from Abbodi1408, it worked as it should and left the source intact.
    Was a bit confused about the proofing "companion" languages, I'd set them in the script (for Spanish there are a couple) but I haven't actually seen them in Office 2016 at all.
    Maybe a change on MS part.

    Cheers.

    Supern00b: Glad abbodi1406's script worked for you.

    Yes, Office 2016 updates are easier to work with- there are no language specific updates like there were in earlier versions of Office.

    I think some users have had problems in the past with WHDownloader when the updates were stored to a flash drive. If you were using a flash drive, try downloading and extracting them to the hard-drive first and then copy them to a flash drive.

    Also, there is another way to have WHDownloader extract the .msps: Open WHD's config.ini file and set the "ExtractMSP=" line to "ExtractMSP=True". With that setting, the .msp file will be extracted automatically after downloading and you won't need to open the extractor separately. That will work for newly downloaded updates.

    But if you already downloaded everything and abbodi1406's script worked, sounds like you're good to go for now.
