    MS Office PowerPoint Viewer SP1.

    I have Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit SP1.
    Recently I installed Power Point Viewer 2007. Today an update is available .
    It is called MS Office Power Point Viewer SP1. The term SP1 confuses me. Do
    I need to install this update since I already have SP1 ? Thank you.

    Power Point Viewer is completely seperate from Office or Win, the sp1 refers
    to power point viewer

    SP1 is the general name of the first collection of upgrades applicable
    to any of several pieces of Microsoft software, including Windows Vista,
    Windows XP, and a number of others. Which piece of software do you
    already have it installed for? If it's not Power Point Viewer 2007, you
    may as well try installing the MS Office Power Point Viewer SP1 update
    and see if it refuses to install because you already have it installed.

    Even if it refuses to install, there's a good chance that such an effort
    will take it off the list of updates you need to install.

    I had MS Office Power Point Viewer 2003 as well as MS Office Word Viewer
    2003. Now I up-graded both to 2007 versions, and found myself with 9 MS
    Office updates, total size 48.8MB. That got me worried. MY Vista SP1 was
    smaller than that.
    Advice please.

    Re: MS Office PowerPoint Viewer SP1.

    I've seen signs that the update program is confusing those viewer programs
    with the entire Microsoft Office package, and is therefore recommending
    updates for software you don't have installed on your machine. Trying to
    install those updates caused no harm, but did nothing useful either. Not
    all
    of them were able to install, though. This newsgroup looks like it might be
    a more useful place to discuss those issues, so I'll crosspost this reply
    there:
