[SOLVED] Windows Update, but only for Windows


Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

Recently, I changed on my laptop windows 7 Ultimate 32bits for the 7 Ultimate 64bits version after formatting .... All was and is still OK.

Then few weeks ago I installed Office 2013 ProPlus 64bits, which is working well.

But, because when computing there is a "but" !!

I didn't know what I forgot when installing Office, but I can't access through Windows Update to anything else than "Only Windows" updates.

I can't get Drivers updates,Others Microsoft products updates and Office 2013 updates and I know there are some because it's working on others computers I manage (home, work, ..).

So I searched on Google, Microsoft, ..., but I couldn't find anything interesting and efficient to change "Only Windows" to "All products" update.

Have you any idea, but I don't want to format and reinstall all (no time for this) ?

Here is how to enable updates for other applications besides Windows. -> click

You only can access Office 2013 update options in Office when you are logged in.

File > Account > Update Options

Manual update

Only works with Internet Explorer 6+ and you need to install a AddOn.


Manually search for:

office 2013 32-bit


office 2013 64-bit

Or you can use WSUS

Thanks guys,

Can't check before monday, 'cause I haven't my laptop here.

I've already check settings in Windows Updates, but I'm really sure there is no lien "Windows Update ... Give me updates for others ..."

Will confirm this soon.

Merci Speedy57,

but Microsoft Update (which is different of Windows Update) was missing, so I couldn't tick this line.

I found a page on the Microsoft website which offers the ability to install Microsoft Update, and now it's working well and I got 41 update files for Office 2013.

Microsoft Update page :

English :  http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/update-microsoft-officeFrench :  http://windows.microsoft.com/fr-fr/windows7/update-microsoft-office Other languages : just changes the code "country-language" in the middle of the above links to yours.
