Where can I find the Readme or Known issues list?

We author readme topics that define the known issues that exist in the various Microsoft Office products. These topics are available on the Microsoft Office Online Web site.

During the product setup process, a file called Readme is stored at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Office12\<####> directory (using default location during Setup). This file contains a link to the specific online topic for you product.
