Could this perhaps be yet another of Gates's bits of spyware, designed to check more and more of what you're doing on your computer, but which arrive masquerading as updates to his pisspoor software?

Not so sure about the spyware concerns, but "pisspoor software" - yeah, you're right on the mark there.

The second update to the auto-updater in nearly as many weeks. There doesn't seem to be much automatic about it. Every other app I use that updates itself can also update it's updater.

Adobe CS? First thing it does is check the version of the updater app. Windows or Office for Windows update? First thing it does is check the updater version. Office for Mac? Broken, fix it yourself with a manual download.

Probably won't work like all the other updaters they have released, but then again what do you expect from them.

It amuses me that there's an update for the updater! Shouldn't the updater know? :)

Let's see, M$ updated the updater, but not the app the updater is supposed to update. Seem to recall shortly after Lion was released almost a year ago, M$ kept saying they were about to release the M$ Office package to take advantage of all the new OS bells and whistles. Two maintenance updates later (which had nothing to do with OS enhancements), still waiting. Wait . . . no really, maybe this update will update an updater that will update the app. After OS 10.9.

I wonder just what this updates. I found the log to be uninformative and there are no notes. For all I can tell, this could be a trojan (?)

Interestingly enough, when I open Office 2008/Help>Check For Updates, this update was not identified.

I just opened up Word 2011 and AutoUpdate ran and said to update AutoUptate to v2.3.4 (Critical). So I guess the update is legit.

Micrsoft updater doesn't work in my computer. I have a Mac Pro with a OXS 10.5 sytem that I use professionally for Photography. This system has professional applications like Adobe CS3, Realviz 5.6, Lightroom 1.1 and alot of other programs that are updated through an Automatic Updater. Yours (micrsoft) doesn't work. When the Updater gives you the first screen it wants to know if you want the update, and I mark yes in the box. Then it asks me for my authentication and I do that, and then it asks for to close the following programs and I do that. From this point the updater will not work and no methodology will get it to work. This is disappointing, because I use this program for so much in my business, but not if it is going to fail. Either allow the updates or I wil be forced to find another program that I can depend upon.

MacUpdate have updated the description now from "To receive future product updates, you must install this update." to "To receive future Office 2008 updates, you must install this update." ...a bit of a difference!

Like you, I found out the hard way.

So at the end of this discussion, we've come to the conclusion that this is for the 2008 version. Why would the 2011 version be telling you (insistently!) to install an update for a version of the software that you're not running? I've checked, and I can't find anything about the 2008 version on my machine - in my mind, I shouldn't be getting these notices. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
