Computer Tip: Office updates fail to install (not found on system)

In some rare circumstances, when trying to install downloaded updates for Office 2007 and Office 2010 [for whatever reason Project seems to be hit most often with this “bug”], you may get the error message:

“The expected version of the product was not found on the system”.

To correct the situation, you can bypass the error and install the update in the following format:

office2010-kb_______-fullfile-x64-glb PACKAGE.BYPASS.DETECTION.CHECK=1

Note that PACKAGE.BYPASS.DETECTION.CHECK is in capital letters for it to work.
