    For several updates, the above has not updated. Therefore it is always listed
    whenever I am notified of other updates.

    Why does this occur, and is there any way I can resolve the situation.

  3. And *save* the installation file, PowerPointViewer.exe, as subsequent
    security updates will need it to install properly. Suggest you create a
    folder in MyDocuments for it and any other Office Viewer installation files.

    Drat! I wish I'd known I should've saved the installation file. If
    PPViewer is updated again I guess I'll have to go looking for it?

  5. Is this the PP Viewer 2007 ? If yes, I don't know if the installation
    source file is required in order for updates to install.
    You could try downloading and saving another copy of the installer and
    move it to the location it originally ran from but ...
    I've never tried that and who actually keeps track of from where stuff
    is installed from ... except a few geeks like me <w>

    How was the Festival, Bro ... did the Boss rock ¹ ?

    Many thanks, MowGreen. The version was 2007, which I used to replace
    PPViewer 2003, which, in turn, could never be successfully upgraded with the
    MS recent large release. As I think I mentioned earlier somewhere, as soon
    as the 2007 version was successfully downloaded and installed MS notified me
    of an upgrade available for it.

    Things seem to be functioning smoothly now.

    Thank you. This particular update was included in a group of six received
    last Sunday. It installed cleanly as did all the others.

  10. My point was that you could've install PPV 2007 SP1 from the git-go, Ken.

  12. Yeah but ... at least we know that PP 2007 *also* requires that the
    installation source be saved, too.

    No doubt; but by the time I read your message I had already applied the
    entire group of updates.
