Microsoft Office Configuration Analyzer Tool 1.0

...

Overview

The Microsoft Office Configuration Analyzer Tool (OffCAT) is a program that provides a detailed report of your installed Office programs. This report includes many parameters about your Office program configuration and highlights known problems found when OffCAT scans your computer. For any problems that are listed in the report, you are provided with a link to a public-facing article (usually a Microsoft Knowledge Base article) on the issue so you can read about possible fixes for the problem. If you are a Help Desk professional, you can also save the report to file so that the report can be viewed in the Office Configuration Analyzer Tool on another client where the tool is installed. The Office Configuration Analyzer Tool 1.0 also includes a command-line version that can be used to collect an OffCAT scan without user intervention.

System requirements

Supported operating systems: Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Vista Service Pack 2, Windows XP Service Pack 3

[Info] MS Office Configuration Analyzer Tool (OffCAT) and OCAT

quote:
ReadMe_OffCAT.doc

Upgrading from OCAT

...

When you install OffCAT using the OffCAT.msi file from the Microsoft Download center, OCAT is automatically uninstalled if it is currently installed on your computer. OffCAT is the replacement tool for OCAT. All detection rules originally found in OCAT are included in OffCAT. Because all new rules for Outlook will only be integrated into OffCAT, you should now use OffCAT instead of OCAT.
Even though OCAT is uninstalled by the OffCAT installation, you can still view all of your previous OCAT scans in OffCAT. If the OCAT scans do not appear in OffCAT, just import them into OffCAT.


Reminder: By default, OCAT saves its scan report as an xml file in the following folder:

%AppData%\Microsoft\OffCAT

This equates to the following folder, based on the Windows version:

In Windows 8, Windows 7 and in Windows Vista

C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\OCAT

In Windows XP

C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Microsoft\OCAT


...

...

...you can instead download the OffCAT.zip file from the Microsoft Download site and then extract the files into a folder on your computer. Then, you can simply run OffCAT using OffCAT.exe in this folder.

Thanks for the update!
This thread is getting a little long in the tooth with new version releases... perhaps a new thread should be started for each version release?
