Insider Fast: Our initial 64-bit release of Office 2016 for Mac is now live!

Hello Office for Mac Insiders,

We have released the first drop of a fully 64-bit version of Office 2016 for Mac to the Insider Fast channel! The update number is 15.25 (160630). I do encourage Insider Fast users to install this update and give it a test. We want to know about any problems you encounter as soon as possible, so that we can make sure we address them before the official release.

This is a huge update for Office and something that we have been working towards for a very long time. I’m thrilled to finally have it available for testing!

The Insider Fast channel is intended for early adopters and those wanting the earliest view into upcoming releases, and the 64-bit version will progress to the Insider Slow channels and to widespread publication over time. I can’t speak to a specific date for that wide release for you yet, so please send us your feedback as soon as you can.

To learn more about the move from 32-bit to 64-bit Office, including information about add-ins, see Mac Office and the Transition to 64-bit. For details about the Insider Fast program, including options for getting in touch or reporting bugs, see Announcing Office Insider Fast for Mac Insiders.

Thanks,

Schwieb

Still missing automatic language detection in Outlook - I thought they have been working on a fix since 15.22 ?

If we have updated to 15.25 (160630) how do we know that we are on the 64 bit build?  Is the transition automatic?
Yes, the transition is automatic. You can verify that the apps are running in 64-bit mode with the Activity Monitor application from your Utilities folder. Launch Activity Monitor, right-click in the tabs at the top of the CPU view, and turn on the "Kind" field. The app will now show you which processes are 32-bit vs 64-bit.

Hi,

I just updated to Office for Mac 15.25 (160630). However, when I did search in Outlook, nothing came back, even I know the mail items matched my search criteria exist.

I wonder whether it's a bug in 15.25 or I did something wrong?

Thanks.

Hi,

More information about my observation -- the search worked if I chose "All Mail" or "All Items" but not "Current Folder".

Thanks.

Hmmm. FWIW, searching on my machine works fine, including "current folder."

In Excel, I'm getting #DIV/0! in random cells that are filled down. The formula is for an average, and all referenced cells are filled in and legit. If I redo the fill down the #DIV/0! goes away.

Another: I get a #DIV/0! on a cell with the formula =OC33+OC49

Ah, that one came from OC33 being a #DIV/0! when it shouldn't have been.

Installed the update today and since then at least 4 crashes in Outlook - never happened before. Must be related to the new build. Let me know if you need more details or how to "upload" any log files if required.

Crash with Excel! 

Any file I try to save the application closes and nothing is saved. Summarising, I am not able to work since I applied the build 15.25 - 160630.

Any suggestions? Any help available?

Thanks,

Sergio
