Using Office 2011 on your Mac? You need to do updates manually
Posted by: sekker

I just learned about this change today. We were installing Office 2011 on a Mac, and running the 'check for updates' showed no updates.

Went online, Microsoft has a series of updates available, as well as a small update for my machine.

I guess I knew they were dumping support, but I had no idea they were ending the distribution of existing updates.

If you have the old Auto-update app from any suite installer up to v14.39 or so, you'll need to update the Auto-updater in order to resume auto-updates.

They changed the update server and the old app won't find it.

...Although that's largely irrelevant since the only updates for the Office suite are to the auto-updater, itself, since support for Office 2011 was discontinued in October. There will be no further updates to Office 2011.

The last version of Office 2011 is 14.7.7.

All updates for Office 2011 and 2016 are available here:
[support.office.com]

If you have an Office 2011 installer that pre-dates v14.1.0, you'll need to update to v14.1.0 or later before updating to v14.7.7.

Who knew? Not me.

running the update now; it seems to have stalled with the progress bars almost to the end, but not quite.

I'd be happy to move beyond Excel 2011, but from my understanding, I can't use the macros that I use on a daily basis with new Office.

If that isn't correct, please let me know!
