Finally got around to updating the good old Office 2003 update list.

I've included the 2007/2010 compatibility pack and all its updates too as well as an Open Office Translator.

Wow, nice one lwjohns. I still use this version, as I dislike the 2010 and 2013 versions of Office.

Yes, unlike office 2007 and later versions, updates for Office 2003 are language specific.  The KB links for each download are included in the update list so you can open it for each download and manually download each update in the language you require. 

 

Microsoft has made it difficult to make different language update lists for 2003 as they keep each language for each update in a different folder on their servers which means you would need to change the full url, not just the filename part.

Great work, thank you. It will make it much easier for me to collect all Office 2003 updates now that support is over. However, I noticed that you may be missing an update.

 

Under the Office Compatibility Pack category, you have oartconv2007-kb2596848-fullfile-x86-glb.exe. I beleive that this has been superceded by a more recent update. Here are the details of the newer update:

 

Security bulletin: http://technet.micro...lletin/ms13-085

Overview KB article: https://support.micr....com/kb/2885080

Component-specific KB article: https://support.micr....com/kb/2760591

 

The new update is oartconv2007-kb2760591-fullfile-x86-glb.exe, available from http://www.microsoft...s.aspx?id=40620.

 

Note that you already have the latest update for Excel (xlconv2007-kb2827326-fullfile-x86-glb.exe) released as part of the above security bulletin.

The security bulletin doesn't list KB2760591 under the compatibility pack section so that's why I didn't include it.  It also says that KB2760591 replaces KB2553090 not KB2596848.

 

I'll need to do some testing before adding it to the update list.

You are right, there is something weird about the replacement informations. On the security bulletin page, it does say KB2760591 replaces KB2553090. On the other hand, on the component specific page (https://support.micr....com/kb/2760591), it says that this update does not replace any other update.

 

This is what you can find on the three relevant update pages:

Update      File name       File version    File size   Date        Time
KB2760591   Oartconv.dll    12.0.6683.5002  8,581,824   13-Aug-2013 10:23
KB2596848   Oartconv.dll    12.0.6665.5003  8,581,768   24-Sep-12   20:05
KB2553090   Oartconv.dll    12.0.6565.5000  8,578,936   04-Aug-2011 02:17

Edit: Note that KB2596848 is NOT a security update, so there is no associated security bulletin. This would explain why MS13-085 references only MS11-072, and it lists KB2760591 as replacing KB2553090. From the point of view of security updates, that is the correct replacement information.

KB2760591 is offered by Windows Update so I have now added it to the update list.

Thank you. With regards to the Office Compatibility Pack, I also did a test. For sake of completeness, here is the result.

 

I did a clean install of Windows XP SP3. I enabled Microsoft Update. I installed all High Priority Updates for XP and IE, but no optional software or other updates. This cleared the High Priority Updates list. I then installed the Office Compatibility Pack only (FileFormatConverters.exe) and no other software. I then visited Microsoft Update, and were offered these High Priority Updates:

Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2687499)
Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2760416)
Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2596848)
Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2687311)
Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2596672)
Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2596615)
Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2596785)
Security Update for Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 (KB2596843)
Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack Service Pack 3 (SP3)

Note how the list includes KB2596848 but not KB2760591. Out of that list, I installed only the Office Compatibility Pack Service Pack 3, then revisited Microsoft Update. This time, I was offered this list:

Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2878236)
Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2817641)
Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2760591)
Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2827326)
Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2760411)
Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2597973)
Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2767849)
Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2687499) - note: superceded by KB2767849
Security Update for Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 (KB2596843)

On that list, KB2767849 actually supercedes KB2687499, so the latter can be ignored. All remaining items match correctly with your update list, except for the oartconv update (KB2760411).

 

In conclusion: I verified that the Office Compatiblity Pack updates on your list are now complete and correct.

More Office 2003 updates have been released even though support has ended.  They're currently not being offered by Windows Update.
