Updated Administrative Template files and Office Customization Tool (OCT) settings are available as a separate download. You may also be interested in the Visio Compatibility Pack, which allows Visio 2010 SP2 users to open the new VSDX file format that is created by Visio 2013.

As of today, all of the SP2 updates are available from the Download Center at the links listed below as well as from Microsoft Update as a manual download. After a 90-day period, SP2 will be offered as an automatic update through Microsoft Update. Customers using the Office Click-to-Run technology will have SP2 streamed to them beginning in August.
