    I assume it does not make Office 2011 Retina-friendly...

    Well it won't install on my machine - I can't quit SyncSortServices and the MS Database Demon (even from the Console) and it won't install with them running

    Update details

    A security vulnerability exits in the way that folder permissions are set in certain Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac 14.2 installations. This update resolves that vulnerability.
    Improvements that are included in the update

    The Office for Mac 2011 14.2.3 Update also includes the following improvements:

    • This update fixes an issue where some SkyDrive folders in Micorosft Document Connection are displayed as zero-byte files instead of folders.
    • This update provides critical updates for connection reliability with SkyDrive.
    Improvements for Excel for Mac 2011


    • This update improves stability in Excel when you drag to move a PivotTable row or column.
    • This update fixes an issue in Excel where #REF is returned even when links are ignored.
    Improvements for Outlook for Mac 2011


    • This update fixes an issue where some IMAP users may receive an “Unknown namespace” error when they try to create special folders (such as Drafts and Sent Items) on the server.
    • This update fixes an issue with some IMAP configurations where Outlook repeatedly displays “Cannot create mailbox” errors.
    • This update fixes an issue that causes Outlook not to display details for certain contacts when Lync or Communicator is running.
    • This update fixes a problem that occurs when users reply to or forward Exchange email messages that were downloaded from Exchange 2007 servers. When this problem occurs, the Date field is missing from the body of the message. To correct email messages that have already been cached, right-click the folder that contains the email messages, select Folder Properties, and then then select Empty under Empty Cache. Or, you can delete the Exchange account and then add it again to resynchronize the account.
    • This update fixes an issue where users may have duplication of mail when they use Gmail and connect with Outlook by using IMAP.
    • This update fixes an issue where some users who have IMAP accounts intermittently receive a “Too many simultaneous connections” error. A setting is now available to control the polling interval that Outlook uses with IMAP servers. To adjust this setting, select Tools, select Accounts, and then select Advanced for the IMAP account. The setting defaults to synchronize all lMAP folders every two minutes.
    • This update fixes a connectivity issue that occurs when Outlook connects through a proxy server that uses NTLM based authentication.
    Improvements to Word for Mac 2011


    • This update improves Full Screen View integration with Word.

    If you have downloaded the updater from Microsoft Downloads

    • Download updater.
    • Log out of your User under the Apple in the Menu bar.
    • Hold down the Shift key when logging in. This disables all login items including the hidden ones.
    • Select the updater and install.
    • RESTART

    If you want to use the Microsoft Autoupdater (MAU), follow these steps:

    • Open any Office application and select "Check for Updates" under Help in the Menu bar. Once MAU is launched, select "Keep in Dock"
    • Log out/in as described above.
    • Select the MAU in the Dock and download the updater.
    • After it downloads, quit the MAU then install.
    • RESTART

    Shift Key?

    Sorry but I am having the same problems in that it won't let me upgrade to 14.2.3, I am getting the same message but I am not understanding how I can log in holding down the shift key. I click on my user but can't hold down the shift key as I type my password so click on it immediately after verifying my password and I am getting the same errors.

    Thanks for your help.
