  • Report: Windows 2004 update is not updating Office 2016 Pro Plus (MSI) installation

    This one has me scratching my head.

    @ScotchNSoda reports:

    I recently had to rebuild my Windows 10 machine due to a failed SSD.  I installed Windows 10 version 2004 as well as Office 2016 Pro Plus (installed MSI version).  When checking for updates via Windows Update, only Windows updates are downloaded and installed; no Office updates are downloaded or installed.

    I already confirmed the Windows Update setting ‘Receive updates for other Microsoft products when you update Windows’ is enabled.  I know there are Office 2016 updates that should be installed.  Office 2016 is updating correctly on my other Windows 10 machine running version 1909.

    Can anybody confirm?
