Office 2013 update not integrated in Windows Update

I am unable to update Office 2013 (.iso version, not the on demand). Office 2013 isn't integrated in Windows Update. The option to "get updates for other Microsoft programs" is completely missing in the settings of Windows Update.


Clicking on the link "get updates for other Microsoft products" just links to a website that says how to open Windows Update.


My machine is on Win7, Ultimate, 64-bit and I am using Office 2013 Professional Plus.


Can anyone help?

If all were well with your computer, installing Office 2013 would have made two (2) changes to your Automatic Updates (AU) settings:

  1. Set (or reset) AU to the default Automatic configuration (vs. "Check for update but...").

  2. "Flipped" your default update source from Windows Update to Microsoft Update.

That being said...

Here's how to get updates for Windows and other Microsoft programs at the same time, including updates for Microsoft Office (Word, Outlook , Excel, PowerPoint , and more) as well as new Microsoft software: In the left pane of Windows Update, click Change settings. Then, under Microsoft Update, select the Give me updates for Microsoft products and check for new optional Microsoft software when I update Windows check box. If you're already using Microsoft Update, which works with Windows automatic updating, Windows Update will automatically open and display your update status.

Has Win8.1 ever been offered to your computer?

 

Is it the same computer as in this other recent thread of yours? => http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-performance/desktop-icons-disappeared-after-recent-updates/1ec30abd-fa57-4d7a-887b-1b9e1881e7bf

The option to receive updates for other Microsoft products appeared back in my Windows Update after I installed another Microsoft program. I installed Webmatrix from MS and suddenly I got tons of update notifications for Office and the checkbox was appearing again.


It seems a possible solution to the problem might be to install some other Microsoft Software and that updates Windows Update at the same time.


Give it a try!

You need to install Microsoft Update addon on your system (in my case this is Windows 7). Open Windows Update and point to the lower block (see red mark on the screen below). The text should be something like: "Find out more how to update other Microsoft software". Click for details, you'll be redirected to the Microsoft Update page where you can install Microsoft Update addon. Since then you should see the "Give me updates for Microsoft products..." checkbox in Windows Update settings.

The same issue has just started happening with my new installs. Installed Win 7.1, Volume License version for school, then Office 2013, Volume License - updates does not give option for anything other than Windows. Clicking the "Find Out More link"

takes me to a generic / dead web page with NO LINKS

 which basically tells me how to start windows updates....

This info might be helpful.  By default, Click-to-run installations are automatically updated and cannot be updated manually.  This is possibly why you do not have the option to install them through Windows Update. 

To see whether you are using a Click-to-run version of Office 2013, click the File tab in Outlook, and then click Office Account. If you see "Office Updates" under Product Information, as shown in the following figure, you are using a Click-to-run installation of Office.



To see the latest version information for Click-to-run installations, click Update Options, and then click View Updates.

For more information about click-to-Run updates, go to the following Microsoft Office article:
