The Microsoft Office Live Blog announced the update: We have taken all of the findings and with the help of the Office and Windows teams come up with a solution that closely delivers on our primary goal – to make integration as seamless as possible.  We can now present to you a single package available as a single download, the “Office Live Update 1.1” which:

  • Installs the necessary performance updates so that we don’t make roundtrips,  and makes the network stacks “smart” so they do the right thing for OLW
  • Installs the Windows Live Sign-in Assistant that ensures that logging into the browser essentially logs you in to Office, so you don’t get prompted again and again
  • Installs the new Office Live Add-in v1.1 which shows who you are logged in as right there in the menu flyout.

We have made this available in all our new international languages, too. Let us know how this works for you, as we are still working on further improvements. And, as always, we thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback because it really helps us get better.
