  • March 2020 Office non-Security Updates Have Arrived

    Posted on March 3rd, 2020 at 12:57 PKCano Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    The March 2020 non-Security Office updates have been released Tuesday, March 3, 2020. They are not included in the DEFCON-3 approval for the February 2020 patches. Unless you have a specific need to install them, you should wait until Susan Bradley (Patch Lady) approves them and any problems have been reported.

    Remember, Susan’s patching sequence and  recommendations are based on a business environment that has IT support and may have time constraints on the updating process. Consumer patching should be more cautious due to limited technical and mechanical resources. The latter is the reason for the AskWoody DEFCON system.

    Office 2016
    Update for Microsoft Office 2016 (KB4484247)
    Update for Microsoft Office 2016 Language Interface Pack (KB4484136)
    Update for Skype for Business 2016 (KB4484245)

    Office 2013

    There were no non-security listings for Office 2007 (which is out of support) or Office 2010.

    Updates are for the .msi version (persistent). Office 365 and C2R are not included.

    Security updates for all supported versions of Microsoft Office are released on the second Tuesday of the month (Patch Tuesday).
