Office 2007 Service Pack 2

Posted on: Aug, 2010 By: Art Holden
Our animated templates for PowerPoint 2007  require that your Office 2007 install be updated with Microsoft's Office 2007 Service Pack 2.  This service pack also fixes several bugs and stability issues with PowerPoint 2007 and other Office applications like Outlook and Word.  This is a free update from Microsoft and installs automatically if you are using Windows Update to keep your computer up to date.

Here is a quick way to check if you have the Office 2007 service Pack 2 installed in PowerPoint 2007.

Find PowerPoint Options at the bottom of the menu that appears when you click the Office Button in the upper right corner of your screen.  See screen shot below.

Options in PowerPoint 2007

Under PowerPoint Options, Click on resources.  The exact version number of PowerPoint 2007 you are using will be listed on at the bottom of the window that appears.  See screen shot below.

PowerPoint 2007 version numbers

In the version number if you see SP2 indicated, then you are currently have Office 2007 Service Pack 2 installed.  If SP2 does not appear, you should update your installation by clicking "Get Updates" at the top of this window.

Good Presenting!

Cassidy: Have you tried playing the slide in Presentation mode? (i.e. go to "Slide Show>View Slide show")? The GIF animations will not automatically animate unless the presentation is being played. You can check for updates to your Office 2010 by using the Windows Updates feature located in "All Programs" to see if you are up to date in service packs. Next, make sure your Windows Media Player is up to date if any of the movies are not displaying properly, this could very well be the culprit in your case.

Your presentations are going to be amazing!
