Summary

This article describes the issues that are fixed in the Microsoft Office Word 2007 hotfix package that is dated December 11, 2012.

INTRODUCTION

Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • Assume that you apply hotfix 974991 or a later version of the hotfix on a computer that is running the Japanese version of Windows 7 and the 2007 Microsoft Office system. When you use Word 2007 to open a document that contains comments, Word 2007 freezes.
  • Assume that you open two Word documents, and then you perform a special action on one of the documents (such as printing, saving, inserting content, copy-pasting, or editing table cells). When you browse through the documents after you perform the action, Word 2007 crashes.

    Note This is a time-related issue. Therefore, Word 2007 may not crash immediately.
