What is Microsoft Office?

Microsoft Office is an office suite of desktop applications, servers and services. Microsoft also positions Office as a development platform for line-of-business software under the Office Business Applications brand. Office is reported to now be used by over a billion people worldwide. Most versions of Microsoft Office use their own widget set and do not exactly match the native operating system. Both Windows and Office use Service Packs to update software.


The most common release is 15.0.4454.1510, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. The primary executable is named oobeicon.exe. The setup package generally installs about 162 files and is usually about 2.28 MB (2,388,480 bytes).
