Fix: Service Pack 2 expiration date issue available for download


Service Pack 2 Update.

The public update for the Service Pack 2 expiration date issue is now available for download. 

The update can be applied before or after Service Pack 2 installation.  If the update is applied prior to installing Service Pack 2 it will prevent the expiration date from being improperly activated during installation of Service Pack 2, if it is applied after Service Pack 2 it will remove the expiration date incorrectly set during installation of Service Pack 2.

The update is applicable to all of the products that this issue affected (see the list in the KB linked below).

Installation instructions and download links for x86 and x64 are available in this KB: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971620

The direct download link for x86 is: http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/F/5/2F51AB71-1325-49D2-9CB9-18DEC4780E99/office2007-kb971620-fullfile-x86-glb.exe

And for x64: http://download.microsoft.com/download/5/B/B/5BBD34A9-C528-42B0-8A5F-9A8997B25C32/office2007-kb971620-fullfile-x64-glb.exe

 

FAQ

Q: How can I tell if the update has worked?
A: The License Type text on the Convert License Type page in Central Administration no longer contains the word “trial”.

Q: I applied the update and now I can’t enter anything in the Convert License Type page in Central Administration, is this right?
A: This is expected behavior if your license type is “Office SharePoint Server with Enterprise Client Access License”.
