Nice to see the Chronicle support. Thanks!

My comments of 14 Oct 2012 (below, in reply to member WhiteGrey) easily suffice as a review. I wanted to add my "star" rating for this excellent software.

Smooth update on several machines. No one is reporting any problems whatsoever at this point. Specifically, no problems with Outlook or its database.

Terrible update. DO NOT INSTALL.

We lost duplex ability on our main Brother HL-5280DW laser printer after this update (as everyone apparently did).

If you do/did install it, the fix is easy: Go to the Brother site, download the driver software for your printer and OS, install it. (I deleted the Brother laser printer before I installed the Brother driver, but others had reported success without performing this step.)

Then, just add your printer in the System Preferences "Print & Scan" pane. All will be well.

Do not allow Software Update to install 2.8 again ...from reports, it will try to do so.

Office 2004 11.6.3 (April 12, 2011) fails to install, installer quitting after "searching for programs to update." Tried on five different machines, Intel and PPC. Tried AutoUpdate and direct download. Tried starting in safe boot. No dice - nothing works. Something wrong with this one.

Bad download to blame on all but one Intel machine...

@Nacho - We still use it (other versions, too) because it has TWAIN support for scanners, unlike 2008 ...and runs on PPC.

I detest this. There's so much I dislike about App Store ...I don't even know where to begin. The entire premise is wrong - wrong - wrong ...and it goes downhill from there. There is absolutely nothing good about it. It's everything Apple has ever stood for turned on its head.

Great FREE utility. Finds more of what I'm looking for - always. Especially good at finding invisible files, etc. Have been using it for years now with never a problem.

No longer free, but price isn't exorbitant either. Worth it to me.

Ran the 12.2.7 update today. All seemingly went well, but we are seeing an identical problem with Entourage on the two Macs we updated (new MacBook Pro and an old PPC QuickSilver).

We have the Entourage prefs set to NOT auto show images in emails unless the sender is in the address book. Normally, when one receives a non-address book email the "header" of the email will have a "Click here to download images" area. Unless you click that message, no images will be shown. After the 12.2.7 update, either the clickable message is totally gone, or is tremendously slow to appear. So far, about 80% of the time there is no way to show images with this security setting.

We will probably have to set the prefs to "Show images always" rather than the far more secure method we had been using. I consider this a security issue of great importance, so I hope there is a resolution quickly from Microsoft.
