Update installed that is for Office XP

Posted: 03-11-2008, 09:30 PM
How come this update
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
(KB947866) for "Office XP" which is for:

"System Requirements
Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000 Service Pack 3; Windows 98;
Windows ME; Windows NT; Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1; Windows XP
Service Pack 2" (note no mention of Vista)

...installed today on my Vista Ultimate as part of Update Tuesday patches?
I have office products but I'm concerned that it may cause problems.

XP is a 'maybe' on Vista anyway, but I'll let the MSRC gang know.
