    After installing and fully updating Windows 7 64-bit I installed Office 2016 Pro Plus VL 64-bit (MSI-Installer X20-42432)

    After waiting for hours...

    I launched Word and clicked the "Install updates only" Radio-Button and hit "Accept".

    After this I had suspected Windows will pop up a UAC-Nag-Screen to Accept the Opt-in from "Windows Updates" to "Microsoft Updates" like it happened with Office 2013.

    But nothing happened...

    I had to do a manual Opt-in to get Office 2016 over Windows Update
    (source: https ://

    Did someone have had the same experience?
    ... or an explanation what I could have done better to avoid the registry "hack".

    Thanks for your help.
