Office 2010 SP1 download links now live

For the Office team at Microsoft, it has been an eventful morning. Microsoft has launched Office 365 globally and now the download links for SP1 for Office 2010 are now live.

The download, (courtesy of user Mephistopheles) can be found in both 32 bit and 64 bit variety (see below). This is the first major service pack for the Office 2010 platform and represents a significant milestone for the platform. 

The service pack will act as a roll-up of all the previous bug and feature fixes. For many corporations, the first service pack acts as a milestone for installation. While the product has been on the market for several quarters, some corporations will wait until the first service pack is released before rolling out the new platform to thousands of employees. We can expect over the next several months wider corporate adoption now that the service pack has been released.

The service pack update will address the following items:

  • Outlook fixes an issue where “Snooze Time” would not reset between appointments.
  • The default behavior for PowerPoint "Use Presenter View" option changed to display the slide show on the secondary monitor.
  • Integrated community content in the Access Application Part Gallery.
  • Better alignment between Project Server and SharePoint Server browser support.
  • Improved backup / restore functionality for SharePoint Server
  • The Word Web Application extends printing support to “Edit Mode.”
  • Project Professional now synchronizes scheduled tasks with SharePoint task lists.
  • Internet Explorer 9 “Native” support for Office Web Applications and SharePoint
  • Office Web Applications Support for Chrome
  • Inserting Charts into Excel Workbooks using Excel Web Application
  • Support for searching PPSX files in Search Server
  • Visio Fixes scaling issues and arrowhead rendering errors with SVG export
  • Proofing Tools improve spelling suggestions in Canadian English, French, Swedish and European Portuguese.
  • Outlook Web Application Attachment Preview (with Exchange Online only)

Microsoft Office is a product that is used around the world by millions of individuals every day. The product is Microsoft's crown jewel of productivity software and Office 2010 will only get better with each service pack release.

Yawn...to expensive anymore for what you get. Unless you are using all of the apps, switch to Open office/Libre office & thunderbird. Works, opens any office file and the price is WAY better than MS Office

I try it every few months to see if it's improved any.. so far haven't been very impressed with Libre yet. Horribly slow at times, lacking some functionality, hate the Windows 95 look, abysmal multimonitor support, buggy, etc etc. I could see comparing it to Office 95 perhaps, but 2010? Not even close, and Thunderbird is a very weak Outlook replacement. If there was a price tag on the thing I'd be pretty irked.

Not sure what is going on: Windows Update listed the 32-bit SP1, I manually downloaded it, installed it, rebooted, Windows Update *still* listed the SP1 file, just a smaller size this time. Installed it as well, not sure why it would have still shown it the 2nd time.

Installing SP1 added Sharepoint Workspace (not selected at initial setup) and Office Upload Center (added a startup entry in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run --> OfficeSyncProcess | "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\MSOSYNC.EXE")

You mean on Office Professional Plus. Workspace is only available on Professional Plus. We have regular Pro here at work and I don't have it.

Office 2010 x64 SP1 already coming through via Microsoft Update on Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1.
For x86 (Windows/Office) as well.

To confirm successful installation:-

RTM Global Office Version: 14.0.5128.5000
SP1 Global Office Version: 14.0.6023.1000

Hmm is the build the only way to know of SP1 in 2010? As previous versions '03, '07 would show the Service Pack in the help dialog.

It does show in Programs and Features\Installed Updates.

Still does -- File -> Help -> Additional Version & Copyright Information. Very first line is the full build info, including service pack number.

Ah, there you go. I need to go to spec savers. Again.

Now only if MS unblocks my legit mistakenly blocked Office 2010 product keys I can finally use it once more.

Have you called MS directly?

That was fast!

I will be updating several computer this week...I'm glad to know it doesn't take much time.

With so many bugs to fix, that list seems too little.

They're not going to include a list of every single bug/issue that they fixed. Suffice it to say that the service pack includes all hotfixes released to date.. both those released publically (ie. Windows update) and those only available on request.

Here is a more complete list:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2460049
(Find the link to the worksheet that is a fairly complete list.)

However, even this list doesn't include all the cummulative changes that are in SP1 that would have already been updated in Office 2010 if you have automatic updates enabled.

The main focus (being that 2010 Office is fairly bug free) is to turn on and update the SkyDrive/Live integration, especially with the server side changes that have been happening on Live/SkyDrive to support features from Live Essentials/WP7/etc.

So it has a lot of security and bugs fixed, and about 300-400 new features or feature corrections.

extract the .exe file in the update folder from the office install files.
That's not a slipstreamed installation, it simply chains the updater to the end of the install routine. A slipstream would integrate the SP1 files into the CAB archives so that the files would only be installed once, saving time.

You can't slipstream Microsoft Office anymore, that's the only option.

yeah, its been this way since office 2007

boogerjones said,
As we said above, that's not slipstreaming. It merely chains the SP1 to run at the end of the installation routine.

Big deal. Okay, maybe it doesn't meet some technical definition of slipstreaming, but for most people that is probably good enough if that is all that you can do. At least you don't have to 1) manually install SP1 via Windows/Microsoft Update or 2) manually run the SP1 installer.

That said, thank you for the technical difference.

No Spanish version yet. Very strange.

No te preocupes, es de esperar, será en breve! Por otra parte, no tengo ni idea. Sólo quería decir algo en español.

Eventualmente saldrá. Pero no sé porqué todavía no ha salido, si el español es uno de los idiomas más usados en el mundo.
