Microsoft releases fixed Office for Mac SP2 update

updated 04:15 pm EDT, Wed April 25, 2012

Solves potential Outlook database problems

Microsoft has posted a new version of Office for Mac 2011 Service Pack 2, listed as v14.2.1. The update can be installed by all Office for Mac users, but is mainly designed to replace a problematic earlier version of the Service Pack, which caused Outlook database corruption problems. Microsoft was forced to pull the patch from AutoUpdate.

"This update is primarily preventative and targets those who have not yet installed SP2; however, whether you have or have not installed SP2, please run this update to bring your installation of Microsoft Office:Mac 2011 to the latest version," a Microsoft note explains. The file is 110MB, and requires that Office for Mac already be updated to at least Service Pack 1.

    Issues still

    Still having issues here........not stopping two services. Have to go in manually and quit them from within Activity Monitor, but how many people are going to know to do that!

    Two Services running

    Greetings and Salutations

    Were the two services running SyncServicesAgent and Database Daemon? If so, how did you get the update? Was it autoupdate or was it from the website?

    Thanks

    Restart

    I just restarted. When I ran the update, it still wanted to kill those two services...and did...and continued with the update.

    What about iPhone and iCloud synchronization?
