    (OP)
    Quickinstall said in readme file, that if I don't understand text inside, I should use normal installer:
    Installer for Microsoft Office Updates Script V13a by Burf
    So I downloaded it and ran, but it's similar script as your script: InstallerOfficeV14d.

    1, Which is better or why exist two similar script for same thing ?

    2, Those scripts need already downloaded update files, which I don't have.
    Where to download all at once for user's office version ? Similar easy way as with Simplix tool for windows ?

    3, Office 2016 haven't telemetry also ? So it's good to download and install EVERYTHING what is microsoft offering ?

    Thank you



    edit: ah i see now, it's same thing but other versions. i downloaded all updates with WHDownloader. it was 64. Put script in folder, but it's installing just 51 updates, why ?

    1. None is better or worst
    InstallerOfficeV14d handle .exe updates, which are the default files downloaded by WHDownloader, and are unique per KB number and office version, thus can exist together

    Quickinstall handle .msp updates, which are contained within .exe, but they are generally named without KB number or office version

    if you already have .msp files, just run Quickinstall script

    2. That is the main purpose of WHDownloader, to give you latest updates

    3. Office 2016 have built-in telemetry, updates don't add it or affect it

    which version you mean and what script?

    A. Correct
    but you need to manually install kb3172605 to fix WU long scan issue

    B. Ues Windows Update

    C. Correct
    you can also put InstallerOfficeV14d next to WHDownloader.exe and it will scan Updates directory

    CC. How it did not exactly? did you keep .exe updates?

    D. Yes, InstallerOfficeV14d will skip installed updates

    1. Telemetry updates are optional, so only install Important updates

    2. Yes you may have some updates, or some don't apply to your Office product
    you could check Windows Update (activate Microsoft Update) to see what office updates are offered

    Why simplix does not include mentioned: kb3172605 to fix WU ?
    If it fixes long loading of updated in windows update ? Everybody uses WU after install simplix.
    Please explain.

    Does anybody know, how works office 2016 telemetry ? Does it use a lot of connection bandwith of poor speed connections ?

    Thanks
