    Hello all. I'm having an issue where I had an older version of the
    compatibility pack installed on a machine with Office XP, and when I
    would try to open a newer version docx or xlsx file, it would say
    something like "This is a pre-release version, do you want to download
    the new version now?" So I would click yes, download the latest
    version, login as admin, uninstall old version, reboot, install new
    version, and it still gives me the same message even though I
    uninstalled the old version and installed the latest. How can I fix
    this problem? Thanks.

    The latest Office compatibility pack is the 2007 version - nothing newer.
    There is one update to it: office2007-kb978380-fullfile-x86-glb.exe maybe
    that's what you really need.

    Here is the actual quote:
    "This is a pre-release version of the compatibility pack and can open
    pre-release office 2007 files only. Do you want to check for a newer
    version of the compatibility pack?"

    Thanks for the response, I tried your suggested update and I'm still
    getting this message.

    Uninstall the Compatibility pack via add/remove
    Run disk clean up, reboot PC Install latest compatibility pack
    See if that helps (PS I assume OfficeXP has been updated)
