The Microsoft SharePoint Product Group has updated their blog post  Announcing: Availability of Infrastructure Updates post with some prerequisites  and installation instructions; they are highlighted in yellow and easy to follow. Please read them before installing the update.

If installing the Update for Office SharePoint Server 2007, be sure to read the instructions in TechNet:  Install the Infrastructure Update for Microsoft Office Servers (Office SharePoint Server 2007.)  Keep in mind that instructions will vary based on how your farm is configured; the following is an excerpt from TechNet addressing a multiple server farm scenario.

  1. Do the following:

    • If you are installing the Infrastructure Update for Microsoft Office Servers on a single computer server farm, click Next and then proceed to step 9.

    • If you are installing the Infrastructure Update for Microsoft Office Servers on the first server in a multiple computer server farm, on the Completing the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard page, do not click Next. Instead, repeat steps 1 through 7 on the next computer in the server farm.

    • If you are installing the Infrastructure Update for Microsoft Office Servers on one of the remaining servers in a multiple computer server farm, click Cancel on the Completing the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard page, and then click Yes in the dialog box that appears. Repeat steps 1 through 7 on the next computer in the server farm.

  2. After you have completed steps 1 through 7 on each computer in the server farm, return to the first computer and then on the Completing the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard page, click Next.

  3. If a dialog box appears that informs you that you must run setup on every server in the server farm, click OK.

The update is relatively large, so be sure you follow the instructions. For a detailed description of the update see the support article:  Description of the Microsoft Office Servers Infrastructure Update: July 15, 2008
