In our Update Office 2013 to Service Pack 1
tutorial, we showed you how to install the Service Pack 1 update for Office 2013. There are chances that the SP1 update can be installed
automatically on your computer without notifying you -- or your company's IT department could have rolled the SP1 update for you. Whatever
the case may me, it is important to first find out whether your version of Office 2013 already has the SP1 installed or not.
Note: The techniques explained here apply to the MSI install versions of Office 2013, and not the CTR (Click To Run)
Follow these steps to find out whether your version of PowerPoint (and Office 2013) already has SP1 installed:
- Launch PowerPoint 2013, and choose the File menu to bring up
Backstage view, and select the
Accounts option, as shown in Figure 1.
Figure 1: Account option within File menu
- This brings up all the Account options on the right side of the window -- here click the
About PowerPoint button, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 2.
Figure 2: About PowerPoint button
- This opens the About Microsoft PowerPoint dialog box, as shown in Figure 3. In
Figure 3 below notice the area highlighted in red shows the version of updates installed. If
SP1 is installed, the version will be (15.0.4569.1506) or higher. In Figure 3 the version is lesser than (15.0.4569.1506)
which means that this copy of Office 2013 is not updated with SP1.

- Now, see the update version within the About Microsoft PowerPoint dialog box from another computer where SP1 was
installed. Here the update version is (15.0.4569.1506), as shown highlighted in red within
Figure 4 -- this determines that the Office 2013
already has SP1 installed.
