How to obtain SP2

Recommended Method: Microsoft Update

We recommend using Microsoft Update to apply SP2. Microsoft Update's detection will determine the products and languages you have installed and update your machine all at once.

Optional Method: The Download Center

If you choose not to use Microsoft Update, the SP2 packages are available for download from the Microsoft Download Center. Please click here to find links to the downloads.

    I know Office Web Components are deprecated but at the time of SP1, there was a separate SP1 for OWC 2003 shipped with Office 2007. No SP2?

    What about Expression Web 2 SP2? Expression Web 1.0 SP1 was shipped along with Office 2007 SP1.

  9. Thanks for the great questions in the comments above.  Please see the explanations below about why we’re not releasing SP2 for some products, and what the status of the SP2 patches is for other products.

    Office Web Components (OWC): There will not be an SP2 release for OWC based on the fact that you mention about their deprecation.  For more information, please read this Excel Blog post about the OWC Roadmap (

    Language Interface Packs (LIP): The LIP SP2 executables are being finalized and verified as we speak, and we hope to have them published within the next week.

    Group Policy Templates: These were published on 4/29.  For more information, including access to the updated version, see this download center page about the 2007 Office system (SP2) Administrative Template files (ADM, ADMX, ADML) and Office Customization
    Tool (

    Expression Web: Expression Web will not be releasing an SP2 update in sync with the Office SP2 updates that were released on Tuesday.  Expression Web actually releases updates on a slightly different schedule than Office products, and although at times those
    schedules align, the releases did not align in the case of SP2.  With that said, Expression Web has been releasing new versions at a fairly rapid clip, and that much of the innovation and improvements to their product comes in the new versions.

    Thanks, and keep the questions coming!  We’ll do our best to keep answering them!
