Microsoft has released a fixed version of its Service Pack 2 update for Office 2011. The update was originally on April 12 and offered a number of improvements for Microsoft’s Outlook e-mail client; however, soon after its release a number of people found that the update had caused corruption in their identity databases. This resulted in the suite’s programs not opening correctly.

Microsoft initially addressed this problem by issuing instructions that users could follow to prepare their identities for the upgrade, or restore their identities if they had been corrupted after the upgrade; however, these did not help all people affected by the bug, and Microsoft subsequently removed this update from its AutoUpdate servers.

A new video leaked to the internet today appears to reveal that Microsoft is preparing a cloud-centric version of Microsoft Office. Dubbed Office 15, the software is currently available to a select amount of testers outside Redmond’s walls, with a public beta promised for summer time. The video, made available by Rafael Rivera, appears to be a marketing video promising that Office will go “wherever you go” thanks to a centralized Office sign-in process that keeps documents online in the cloud. “That way they travel with you to all your devices,” says the promotional video — a clear selling point of the next version of Office.

Microsoft: Morgan Stanley Ups Target to $37 on Office 15 Promise

Morgan Stanley’s Adam Holt this morning raised his price target shares of Microsoft  to $37 from $33, writing that the stock, trading at just 11 times the next twelve months’ projected earnings, is failing to reflect prospects for the next version of Office, version 15, which will likely be available not just on Intel  processors but also for versions of Microsoft’s operating system running on chips based on ARM Holdings‘s  architecture.

That could give Microsoft a big boost in tablet computers and other mobile devices running the forthcoming Windows 8, versus Apple‘s  iPad, thinks Holt, as Office 15 is not likely to show up on the iPad, at least not initially. Read more »

Six Features You’ll Love in Office 15

Most of the attention on Redmond this year is focused on the upcoming Windows 8 operating system. But, the next generation of Microsoft Office is also currently under development–ostensibly to be launched along side Windows 8 this fall–and Office 15 has the potential to be the real hero among the two. 

Microsoft has made a number of major changes to the latest version of Windows—not the least of which are the touchscreen optimized Metro interface, and adding ARM-based tablets as an option. But, as the de facto productivity suite for businesses, Microsoft Office is the standard bearer of the Microsoft Windows operating system and Office 15 has the power to drive adoption of Windows 8 by taking advantage of the unique capabilities of the new OS.

Microsoft Office 15 apps to include ‘touch mode’

The coming Office 15 client apps all seem to be getting a new ‘touch mode’ button that will enable them to work better on touch-centric devices.

It looks like Office 15 client apps are going to get more touchy, but in a way that won’t force touch on users who don’t want or need it.

One of the big questions many Microsoft watchers have had is how Microsoft plans to make its next-generation Office client apps more touch-friendly, so that they’ll be optimized to work on tablets and PCs running the touch-optimized Windows 8 operating system. Microsoft officials already shared that the four Office 15 apps that will be “included” on Windows 8 on ARM (WOA) tablets will be Desktop apps, not WinRT-based Metro-Style apps. So how will Microsoft make these versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote work better with touch than their current-generation counterparts? Read more »

From Windows to Office, cloud and server applications, and maybe a Metro-inspired dance remix on YouTube, Microsoft’s next-generation user interface will be everywhere by Windows 8’s launch.

Windows Phone-inspired, the Start ’screen’ will replace the traditional Start menu, and will be the front-facing end of the next-generation operating system, Windows 8.

Pinching the user interface from existing Windows Phone 7 devices, in which the thin fonts and the application tiles reign free from the rest of the desktop, evolutionarily speaking it is truly a feat of ingenious for the mobile space. Read more »
