Microsoft AutoUpdate

4.21
19 March 2020

Provides latest MS Office updates to customers.

Overview

Microsoft AutoUpdate allows you to keep your software up-to-date automatically. AutoUpdate comes with Office, so there's nothing additional to install, and you can also use it to manually check for new downloads as well. This update to Microsoft AutoUpdate is part of Microsoft's continued effort to provide the latest product updates to customers. To receive future Office 2011 or Office 2016 updates, you must install this update.

What's new in Microsoft AutoUpdate

Version 4.21:

Note: (for Office 2019 users) If you are running macOS version older than 10.13 MS AutoUpdate will not offer you new updates, unless you upgrade your system, because newer MS Office packages require macOS 10.13+. The app would still work properly, but will recommend you to upgrade. See this support article for more details. Office 2016 should still update properly on older machines.

Feature Updates:
  • State Restoration Enabled for Word, Excel and PowerPoint, running without any windows open, or running the Docstage state, in automatic updates mode of Microsoft AutoUpdate. Now updates will be even more silent for end users in Automatic Updates mode, as they don't need to quit their apps that qualify for Update via State Restoration

Nothing but update errors through build 4.19 which looks completely different from previous builds (like the image above). In the past AutoUpdate had never issues updating the Office 365 apps but now after downloading the update for each apps has finished installation starts and always fails (without any explanation of course). Annoying!

MAU 4.6 was released on 11 December 2018. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/officeupdates/release-history-microsoft-autoupdate It's becomes clearer every week that MacUpdate's business model is being pretty well wrecked by the prevalence of automatic version checking and updating in most modern software titles. Time to move on.

The latest version as of 04/19/18 is AutoUpdate 3.18. Once installed it downloaded a version of Office 2011 that is not yet pasted on MacUpdate: 1477. Which is cool, considering that Microsoft has supposedly discontinued support for Office 2011. Of course all it contained were security fixes. But that's not bad news. As for those who hate office, I think that's just a (bad) habit. There are plenty of alternatives, all of which cost less than Office. Why waste time and energy hating on Microsoft? That said, the fact that they wrote a whole new app for High Sierra, Office 2016, rather than updating Office 2011 shows how little respect Microsoft has for their users. So I can't give the app much respect either. Three stars.

14.7.7 came out in sept 2017. Macupdate was slow to update. That was the last version released and no more unfortunately.
