      I ran Win update to see what Office 2010 patches were offered at 1st it was getting stuck in the searching for updates screen, then it worked fine 1 hr later , anyhow when it had completed (after a short search) i saw it had unhidden all the language packs as well as these old updates one dated 2015 here is a screen grab of them are there any for a group B or w group iicr Windows 7 user that should be installed ?

      Your screen grab is not attached.
      None of the updates you see are Group B patches. Group B updates are Catalog download only and are not offered through Windows Update.

      Did you perhaps click on “Restore hidden updates” instead of “Check for updates”?

        In addition to the updates checked in your screenshot, you need to also check the 2019-09 version of KB4474419 and install it.

      Same machine , I think i will clone my O/S Hdd prior to installing  just incase  i have issues , i have a spare SSD that the image will fit on  but it has Win 7 on it , I upgraded  my O/S SSD to nvme and also in capacity and also changed the boot from MBR to UEFI (which wasn’t straight forwards due to Acronis rescue media not catering for this scenario out of the box so needed to add drivers and the 2 windows compatibility updates for NVME support , and a win PE boot loader iirc , So will win7 format this old  spare ssd with a working win o/s on it 1st

        Good idea. Always image before a major change.

      I just hope it will be straight forwards , it should be as there is no changing the Boot files from MBR  as it is already booting using uefi,  shame i didn’t know how to make the installation DVD of win7 install that way,mind you it had no support for usb3 either
