      This download replaces the Help (.HxS) file on your computer for common Office 2007 features. The download contains the latest revisions and additions to content in that file.

      By default, ribbonhelp.msp automatically replaces the current RIBBON.HXS file in the \Program Files\Office12\1033 directory on the drive where you installed the 2007 Office System. If you installed the 2007 Office System in a different directory, you can locate the file in the \1033 directory, a subdirectory of the \Program Files\Office12 folder.
