      PKcano: Where did you find this list of Office updates? Did you noticed, that it’s identical to the March 2019 non-security updates? Although Microsoft’s kb articles says, the updates are from April 2, 2019. Seems strange – has Microsoft re-released all March 2019 updates for Office again?

      Next to the Office updates On my WSUS I also found these windows 10 version 1809 updates:

      2019-03 Kumulatives Update für .NET Framework 3.5 und 4.7.2 für Windows 10 Version 1809 (KB4489192)
      2019-03 Kumulatives Update für .NET Framework 3.5 und 4.7.2 für Windows 10 Version 1809 für x64 (KB4489192)
      2019-03 Kumulatives Update für Windows 10 Version 1809 für ARM64-basierte Systeme (KB4490481)
      2019-03 Kumulatives Update für Windows 10 Version 1809 für x64-basierte Systeme (KB4490481)
      2019-03 Kumulatives Update für Windows 10 Version 1809 für x86-basierte Systeme (KB4490481)
      2019-03 Servicing Stack Update für Windows 10 Version 1809 für ARM64-basierte Systeme (KB4493510)
      2019-03 Servicing Stack Update für Windows 10 Version 1809 für x64-basierte Systeme (KB4493510)
      2019-03 Servicing Stack Update für Windows 10 Version 1809 für x86-basierte Systeme (KB4493510)

      Seems it takes MS a bit longer to patch 1809, hopefully because it’s thoroughly tested…

      In Woody’s ComputerWorld article this April 3 morning he wondered how to find out info on Office releases. Yes, the http://blogs.technet.com/b/office_sustained_engineering web site is gone, but before they took it down, they pointed people to start looking at something like https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/officeupdates/ instead. Unfortunately, that appears to have not yet been updated for yesterday’s releases.

      However, if you go to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4089498 and you like to use RSS feeds, you can generate a feed for Office 2016 or 2013 or 2010. I did a feed for Office 2013 and got a couple links to yesterday’s updates. So the info is out there. (Well, maybe not all of the info, because I see that PKCano’s list is more extensive than what’s in the RSS feed.)

      As to the idea of having released these updates last month already, my experience in downloading individual updates for Office in the past tells me that this is no new pattern. In other words, it appears that they “publish” these updates a week or two in advance, but don’t really allow you to get your hands on them until the first Tuesday of the month. Or at least that’s what I’ve noticed with the dates in the area shown in Woody’s screenshot.

      Are these updates only intended to take care of the year of the new Emperor’s era that will appear, instead of the Gregorian one, in the dates written, for example, in official Japanese documents, or do they also fix some unrelated bugs?

        Not all of the patches are related to the Japanese calendar changes.

        Many of them are, but not all.

        There’s no reason to install any of them right now unless you’re working with Japanese-language calendar entries….

      None of the updates are re-release, they all new updates

      the March date on Download Page represent the actual build date of the patch (you can check digital signature)

      this been the way for Office MSI updates at download center since ever 🙂

      regarding Docs page
      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/officeupdates/office-updates-msi
      it will only be updated on patch tuesday, when all Office updates (security/non-security) are published

      that’s because the page rely on KB support article that include all the month updates, which is published on 2nd Tuesday


      @OscarCP

      no, the updates fix various issues too

      I’ve been offered the Office 2010 update KB3114559 as an important update (along with the 5 Patch Tuesday Office 2010 updates which I haven’t installed yet), but it is currently unchecked.

      • #348659

        We don’t recommend installing the unchecked updates.
        And Microsoft leaves them unchecked for a reason – so they don’t get installed automatically.
        When MS is ready for them to be installed generally, it will change the metadata so that they appear checked.

          Thanks for picking up on that quickly PK, and no indeed, I had no intention of installing it – as I said, I haven’t installed the others yet in any event. I should perhaps have made it clearer that my comment was for information only.

        • #349549

          On my windows 7 VM, Office 2010 is installed.  An unchecked KB3114559 was offered.  But I also wanted to get the servicing stack update (KB4490628) installed.  On other W7 VM’s where Office 2010 was not installed, I got the SSU update promptly.  But on the machine with Office, I finally decided to check the KB3114559 [since I don’t use Outlook, hoping there would be no other damage to Office].  Once that outlook KB was installed, then Windows Update was willing to offer me the SSU update.

          So, depending on whether you “feel the need” for the SSU update, and only if you don’t care about outlook, you may want to consider installing KB3114559 before its time.

          • #349560

            Servicing Stack updates have to be installed exclusively (alone). They do not show up until the important update queue is empty.
            If you have other updates waiting, you can right-click on them and temporarily HIDE them so the SSU will show up. After it is installed, you can unhide the other updates.
