Updating Office Solutions

To update an Office solution, use the Publish Wizard to copy the updated solution to the deployment location. The next time the solution checks for an update, it will find and load the new version automatically. For more information, see How to: Update Deployed Office Solutions.

Applies to: The information in this topic applies to document-level projects and application-level projects for Microsoft Office 2010 and the 2007 Microsoft Office system. For more information, see Features Available by Office Application and Project Type.

In some cases, you might want to change the installation path of an Office solution. For more information, see How to: Change the Installation Path of an Office Solution.

End users can choose to cancel an update and still run the currently installed Office solution. If Office solutions are configured to check for updates, new or changed files are downloaded before the add-in or customization is loaded.

Instead of upgrading to a new version, you can go back to a previous version of an Office solution. This is done by changing or replacing the deployment manifest at the installation location. For more information, see How to: Roll Back a ClickOnce Office Solution to an Earlier Version.
