Hi all...

Does anyone still use Office 2003? I installed this today and it totally breaks Windows Update. The program itself installs OK. But there are tons of security updates through Win Update. It installs many then abruptly stops working and the WU screen flashes off. I attempted to uninstall those updates one by one but it made no difference. WU won't work. I then uninstalled the entire program and WU is still broken. I know that MS doesn't support Office 2003 any longer, but it has worked on all the Win versions and builds up to this point. I am using dev 22449.1000. Will it do any good to report to MS thru the Hub? I'm sure I cannot be the only one that still uses Office 2003. Thanks for any help.

I would not report this to MS. This app is almost 20 years old and a lot has happened since then. Most MS Office users most likely have O365 subscription by this point. You get most Office apps + 1TB of OneDrive storage or in case of Home subscription you get 5 seats which equals 5 x 1TB OneDrive Storage and 5 users that can use O365 linked to their own account. (...or was it 6 seats. MS changed this and I never remember if it went from 4 to 5 or 5 to 6 😄)

Ok, I checked the available O365 family seats for Home users. It is 1 + 5 = 6 seats in total. Great deal IMO.
