July 2008 Update Release


On Tuesday, July 8th, 2008, Office released two critical non-security updates to Outlook and two updates to the Outlook Junk Email Filter. The Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 (KB953432) consolidates hotfixes to address several issues, including an issue that prevents users from opening certain JPEG attachments after installing the MS08-015 security update. The Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 (KB952142) also consolidates hotfixes to address several issues, including an issue that causes Outlook to hang and behave oddly if the MS08-015 security update was installed before Outlook was started for the first time. We recommend that all users of Outlook 2003 and 2007 install the appropriate update for your version of Outlook. In addition to these updates, Office also released Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 Junk Email Filter (KB953465) and Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 Junk Email Filter (KB953463).

    KB952142 is giving me an error that it is already installed though I downloaded it for the first time today.

    Update KB953463 is giving me fits on one Vista Business SP1 machine.  The update fails over and over, and even downloading the standalone package is no use, as the update installer stops responding.  All the other updates installed fine.

    If you have previously installed Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 (KB950219), you do not need to install this update (KB952142), and it will not install successfully. The 950219 update contains the 952142 update released today, in addition to other changes. An update to the Knowledge Base article 952142 to incorporate this information is in progress.
