    First of all, everyone offended please accept my apologies for posting a query which may have been answered elsewhere.

    The solution sought is to create a single install file for office 2010+sp2+post sp2 updates and then just update it every month. OS is windows 8.1 x64

    Every month, MS releases office 2010 and 2013 updates. Instead of patching with updates, I download all the updates, and extract the x-none files, and overwrite previous x-none files if applicable. Then I uninstall office. This removes the program and all updates. Then I reinstall with all updates, and restore activation already done long time back with ATM. I find this process to be conserving of disk space than installing new updates on top of old.

    For office 2013, things are quite easy. I have office 2013 pro x64 with sp1 (exe) of 833 MB. This I extract using winzip. Then, I put the updates (x-none format) in the updates folder of the extracted exe. Then it is a simple matter of

    1. running setup from the complete office 2013 folder (which has updates in updates folder).
    2 installation completes in 5-10 mins.
    3. restore activation.
    The program and all latest updates are installed and all is good.

    For office 2010, unfortunately I find that it takes more time. I have a office 2010 pro plus x64 rtm and sp2 which I have used to create a office 2010 with sp2 x64 iso of 1.81 GB. My normal process is:
    1. mount iso, run setup, install office 2010 from iso with a trial key.
    2. Restore activation when 1 is done.
    3. install all x-none updates.

    Now pt 3 in office 2010 is cumbersome and it takes 10 mins for step 1 to complete and another 10-15 mins for completing step 3.

    My query is that is there a way to add all updates for office 2010 beforehand in the install file so that both 1 and 3 are done at the same time.

    There are web based/torrent files which have this file but why download 1-2 GB when I have the complete files (which are office 2010, sp2, and x-none updates).

    I would be extremely grateful if someone could please help or post a link as to how I do this.

    It should work the same way as Office 2013; that is, there should be an Updates folder for 2010.

    It does not have. Should I create one and then put all the updates, or will this corrupt the installer

    your iso doesn't have an "Updates" folder in it?

    in my case it is
    Code:
     I:\$MSDN_MIRROR\O\OFFICE_2010\SP2\OFFICESP2010-KB2687455-FULLFILE-X64-EN-US.EXE /extract:"c:\ExtractedFilesFolder"
    except the agreement and it will extract the msp files.

    Place the msp files in a folder named "Updates"

    If you have UltraISO simply drag the Updates folder into the opened Office 2010 iso and "save as", save as another name or your original iso will be toast. Or make a copy of your iso prior to opening in UltraISO.

    If you are using an SP1 iso, just remove the updates from the Updates folder (if you had one lol) and place all the SP2 in that folder. SP2 has all SP1 with it.

    -ed-
    that is all the SP1 iso's are. SP1 MSP files in an Updates folder.

    (OP)
    The iso (office + sp2) has the updates folder but that is all filled up with 1.06 GB and I reckon that is SP2. There is the 777522 KB officesuite file, some smaller files and some proof-en- files.

    Can I do this: add all the post sp2 x-none files to this folder taking care to note that I do not overwrite (because then the SP2 may get corrupted). That could save me installing 90% of post SP2 updates.
    Sorry to be late in replying but I was sleeping.

    Yeah, that should work no problems. As you stated, take note of which files you overwrite and it will do a good majority of updates.
