      There’s a post on reddit saying these updates uninstall OneNote. Waiting for somebody to confirm this

          Sorry, I just wasn’t 100% sure posting links here is okay. Here you go:

            Posting links here is always OK (unless you’re linking to a password cracker or bogus copy of software).

            Hi – that reddit post is about a bug that was specific to an Office update back in Sept and no longer being pushed (16.0.10730.20088). It is not about the Nov 2018 updates, which leave OneNote 2016 alone. Future Office updates are also expected to leave OneNote 2016 alone.

        Hi – I’m on the OneNote team and I can confirm that this and future Office updates leave OneNote 2016 alone.

          Hi, Tony. Thanks for the explanation.

          Any idea why people are reporting that desktop OneNote is getting removed by one of the Office First Tuesday non-security patches?

          Presumably it’s a bug – but I don’t see any correlation. Haven’t even been able to track down which KB is messing things up: No obvious culprits.

          Sometimes reports like this are happenstance — a problem arises about the same time as updates arrive, and the updates get blamed. Sure wish I knew what was happening!

            Hi Woody – that reddit post references a help article for an issue that happened in Sept. It’s not about the Nov. 2018 updates. Definitely let me know if you’re seeing something different. Thanks!

      Just got a tweet from Mary Branscombe:

      if the bug that uninstalls OneNote 2016 hits you, here is the official Microsoft support article telling you how to reinstall it

        Simply hillarious. I especially liked the second tweet though:

        This is a known issue that affects users on Microsoft Office releases prior to version 16.0.10730.20102, where an Office update may have caused OneNote 2016 to be automatically uninstalled for those users. ”

        It has a nice ring to it.

      Office 2019 seem missing in the above?

      Or is this not formally available / released just yet?

      (I have it installed already)

      Both kb4461522 (https://support.microsoft.com/nl-nl/help/4461522/november-6-2018-update-for-office-2010-kb4461522) and kb2863821 (https://support.microsoft.com/nl-nl/help/2863821/november-6-2018-update-for-office-2010-kb2863821) showed up in Windows Update yesterday, both labeled as important, but both unchecked. Did not install them (duh). What I find strange is they both seem to do the same thing.

      This update makes some changes for the Japanese calendar in Office 2010 so that the new Japanese era name can be displayed correctly when a new era begins.

      And I’m in The Netherlands; why is a Japanese calendar-update pushed as important?

      The Office 2010 ones appear on my appropriate machine as Important but unchecked.

      No action required.
