Installing this now. Thanks for the head's up.
Less than 30 seconds ago I got the urge to check for an update while using Word 2008 - and I thought to myself that would just be a waste of time.
Wow - kinda spooky.
Installing now. 153 MB I see. Pretty big. Hopefully this will make Word start up faster.
EDIT: It's actually 476MB now that installer started up. It took about 5 minutes just to check "additional volumes".
Another EDIT: Finished installing. Even when Word was opened once, it started up in 4 seconds. That is an improvement by a bit.
Also more in depth info here:
For me the apps seem to open up much quicker.
Wonder if my system will break if I try and install this... think I'll give it a day or two and put up with the non-opening documents meanwhile...
Right after i downloaded it i slimmed it in xslimmer and then i opened word and it was fast!!! ame for powerpoint
....and it wont install for me even though i'm currently running 12.1.0, thanks Microsoft...and no, im not running a pirated version. Meh...i use 2004 more anyways
IDK but if you moved the folder it could not have found it...
Same for me
Same situation as daneoni. It updated previously, folder is where it should be and my screen shots are the same as daneoni. What crap.
Install worked. Office still sucks.
Can we fix these errors from littering my system logs please?
It's been acknowledged as a known bug, yet 12.1.1 still doesn't fix it.
seems more stable than before. slight improvement in load speed (but still wish it was faster) and finally works properly in spaces/expose. decent enough of an update, so i'm not complaining.
Same issue here, same screen shot. I had this problem on my macbook with the last major office update. After nearly an hour with Windows support we got it installed after a "safe boot" of system before install. I just tried that again with no luck. This error is showing up on both my iMac and Macbook.
the spaces issue is what bugged me the most
How is it supposed to work?
I can't seem to have two documents, each on a different space as it messes up and bounce me to the space where the first document is...
Other than that, seems all right so far, although to be fair I haven't really had time to test it thoroughly
Hopefully this will make office transform from a hippopotamus to a much more manageable elephant, lol.
Edit: looks like I'll never know. Update does not install on my volume. Thanks!
It won't. It's still a bloated fat mammal of an office suite.
To iWork everyone! Before the riff raff get in!
Word seems, may I say, incrementally snappier than before. The 4 second load time is also slightly faster. Perhaps MS will now be inclined follow suit by giving us 'Snow Office 2009.' (shipping by Jan 2011)
It works only on pirated versions, because you allready spent the money for it.
Same problem. Does anyone have a solution?
Thanks a lot
This is the only reason i switched to iWork. I had no problem with office on teh windows platform really. Sure the iWork interface is way better, but it doesn't have equations support which sucks for me. On the Mac 2008 vs 2004 doesn't really amount to any speed difference like it should. It's the slowest app on my Mac.
Sounds like iWork+Office 2004 is the way to go for me. The 2008 is grossly obese - 40s loading time on my G4 PB - it would have to go.
I understand that my computer is no longer the newest there is, but this time MS has probably broken the world record for loading time of ANY word processor on a hard drive-containing machine, EVER.
