Does it work on anything but the very original version of Office X? It seems to think my otherwise up-to-date Office X is fine and doesn't need updating.

I have followed the directions, have the last update installed, but not this one. And yes Mad Jew
, it seems to find nothing compatible to install onto.

It's too early in the morning for this, I am going to bed.

I really like Nisus Express, but I need Office compatibility (for collaboration) for school and work. Office for Mac (and Office in general) is so versatile and powerful, I just hate the persistent Windows like problems.

It says that it only applies to 10.0.0 in the Read Me file but the site says that the security update for 10.1.7 must be installed first.
