    W8.1 Not Detecting Office Updates

    How do I get Windows 8.1 to detect updates for Office 2007?

    In the update settings, I only have two checkbox options.

    I look at another Windows install and they have four checkboxes, one of which says something like "include updates for other Microsoft products".

    Is there a KB I can install/registry tweak to get Windows update to show all four options?

    in windows 8.1 there are only two checkboxes.
    control panel > windows update > change settings > check both boxes

    You should enable the Microsoft Update for it to detect other Microsoft softwares updates.
