Download Service Pack 1 for Microsoft Office 2010

Microsoft has released Service Pack 1 for Microsoft Office 2010 and it is now available for download for 32-bit as well as 64-bit installations.
Microsoft Office 2010 Service Pack 1 contains several new features. There are things that you couldn’t before, or things that are just better than they were with the original release.

It provides the latest updates for Office 2010. This service pack includes two main categories of fixes:

  • Previously unreleased fixes that were made specifically for this service pack. In addition to general product fixes, these fixes include improvements in stability, performance, and in security.
  • All the public updates that were released through June 2011, and all the cumulative updates that were released through April 2011.

Currently Service Pack 1 is being offered as a manual download from the Download Center and from Microsoft Update, and no sooner than 90 days after release, will be made available as an Automatic Update.

Compare: Microsoft Office 2010 vs Office 2007 vs Office 2003

Compare: Microsoft Office 2010 vs Office 2007 vs Office 2003

Microsoft has released a document which compares the features of its Microsoft Office 2010 suites available through Volume Licensing, with Office 2007 and Office 2003 – and it is now available for download.

The document has various charts and tables which compare Office 2010 with its earlier two versions and shows how the latest offering can actually increase the value of an existing IT infrastructure.

Microsoft Office has been the productivity standard for quite some time. Features like Copy and Paste and the Ribbon toolbar—which were breakthroughs when they were introduced—have now been further enhanced. Advanced new capabilities have also been added that will become the new standards in productivity for the future.

With Office 2010, productivity knows no boundaries. Microsoft Office 2010 can keep your employees in touch and working effectively no matter where they are. They can use the same applications from their PCs, from a smartphone, or from a Web browser—and they can even switch between modes of access without losing a thing.

And now that Office Web Apps are available as lightweight companions that can be hosted on premises, your IT staff gains more manageability and control. All those reasons make Office 2010 a “must have” productivity tool for any organization.

How to configure the size limit for both (.pst) and (.ost) files in Outlook 2007 and in Outlook 2003 Microsoft
Office Outlook 2007 and Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 supports both American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and UNICODE personal folders (.pst) and offline folder (.ost) files. This article describes how to use the following four registry entries to limit the size of both the .pst and the .ost files:

  • The MaxFileSize registry entry
  • The WarnFileSize registry entry
  • The MaxLargeFileSize registry entry
  • The WarnLargeFileSize registry entry

Follow these steps to configure the size limit for both the .pst and the .ost files.
Note The settings that are discussed in this article apply to both .ost and .pst files. If you modify these registries, this can affect .ost files that are used with Cached Exchange Mode, with AutoArchive, and with .pst. files.
Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
