Microsoft Office 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) Official Direct Download Links

Microsoft today announced the official release of its new cloud-based productivity suite, Office 365, which lets you access your email, documents, contacts, and calendars more easily from anywhere on virtually any device, while collaborating with others inside and outside their organization in a simple and highly secure way. Besides, Microsoft has also released the Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Microsoft Office 2010 productivity suite (KB2460049), and it is now available for download for 32-bit as well as 64-bit installation.

Microsoft Office 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) contains the latest updates for Office 2010 which improve security, performance, and stability. Additionally, the SP is a roll-up of all previously released updates. Here is a full list of fixes and improvements that SP1 for Office 2010 includes.

Currently, Service Pack 1 is being offered as a manual download from the Microsoft Download Center and will be made available no sooner than 90 days via Windows Update and Microsoft Update, automatically for people with automatic updating turned on. If you can’t wait for the Automatic Update, or if  you need to update multiple computers but only want to download the update once, here is the Office 2010 SP1 official download pages and direct download links for you:

To install, just double-click the .exe file that you saved to your hard disk drive, and follow the instructions on the screen. Please not that you need to download the right version of 32-bit or 64-bit that matches the installed Office 2010 product, and not Windows operating system. Microsoft has recommended most users to install 32-bit Office 2010 even on 64-bit Windows. The main reason of this is app compatibility and there are also very few if any 64-bit add-ins for Office.
