  • Troubleshoot TurboTax for Mac updating issues. Ensure that you're running the program from the Applications folder, not from a mounted virtual drive or CD.

Microsoft AutoUpdate (MAU) version 3.18 and later includes the msupdate command-line tool. The msupdate tool can be used to start the update process for Microsoft applications produced for Mac, such as Office. The tool is primarily designed to give IT administrators more precise control over when updates are applied. You can download the latest version of MAU from this link.

msupdate works by sending Apple Events to the MAU daemon. On macOS 10.14 Mojave and later, you may see a privacy prompt when running msupdate for the first time. If you are using an enterprise management tool such as Jamf Pro, you should deploy a Privacy Preferences Policy Control (PPPC) payload to pre-approve access. Samples of such a payload can be downloaded from GitHub.


Use the following steps to start using the tool:

  1. Open the Terminal application
  2. Enter cd /Library/Application Support/Microsoft/MAU2.0/Microsoft
  3. Run ./msupdate --help

The following options are displayed:

Manual Update Mcafee Livesafe

  • The identifiers for the Office apps, such as Word and Outlook, can be used for the following versions:
    • Office for Mac (Microsoft 365 or Office 365 subscription plan)
    • Office LTSC for Mac 2021 (volume license)
    • Office 2019 for Mac (retail or volume license)
  • If an update is pending for MAU itself, that update must be applied before any applications can be updated.
  • Identifiers are not case-sensitive when run interactively from the command-line, but use the character casing in the table when running from a management tool such as Jamf Pro.
  • Microsoft Teams might use MAU to provide updates in some scenarios, such as if the Teams updater fails. But, you can't use msupdate to have MAU manage updates for Teams, because Teams doesn't provide admins the ability to deploy and manage updates. Instead, Teams is updated automatically approximately every two weeks with new features and quality updates. For more information, see Teams update process.
