Please note that these updates are all found in their corresponding versions of Office Click-to-Run:
Office 2013: 15.0.4535.1511
•Update for Microsoft Outlook 2013 (KB2896300)
•Update for Microsoft Lync 2013 (KB2825630)
are not available by WSUS (without known reason)
After reviewing the updates downloaded and installed by Windows Update yesterday (Tuesday, October 8), I note that KB2896300 for Outlook 2013 was never pulled from Windows Update, and therefore not installed.
This behavior was evident on two systems, both running Windows 7 SP1 x64 Ultimate and Office 2013 32-bit (MSI install).
As of now, Outlook 2013 shows in "About:"
Microsoft Outlook 2013 (15.0.4535.1006) MSO (15.0.4535.1507) 32-bit
All of my other installed Office 2013 products show:
Microsoft ProductName (15.0.4535.150x) MSO (15.0.4535.1507) 32-bit; where x=7 or 8 ...
so clearly all other Office 2013 updates were pulled and installed correctly.
Both systems in question were affected by last month's patch which caused the "missing folder pane in Outlook 2013" issue. On both systems, I uninstalled all instances of the patch that caused that issue (KB2817630), and subsequently installed the out-of-band patch that correct the issue (which brought Outlook to 15.0.4535.1006).
Why did Windows Update not pull/install KB2896300 which should have brought Outlook to 15.0.4535.1508? Should I download/install the patch manually?
Please advise. Thanks!
Also ... note the discussion I started at social.technet.microsoft.com/.../patch-tuesday-kb2896300-for-outlook-2013-not-pulledinstalled-by-windows-update
What happened..?? After an auto update many components in my laptop are gone, like the outlook and all items on the task bar. Do I uninstalled everything ??
These updates have destroyed my win 7 home premium PC. It is incredibly slow after this massive update. It freezes and hangs on every application. There is at least an 18 second delay between each click of a program. It is incredible that MS would release another flawed patch after 2 months in a row. I can only hope this gets patched soon because it has erased my restore points and I cannot roll back the updates. I cannot uninstall the updates because each takes about and hour (26 updates). I hope they are working on a patch because this is unacceptable.
How about the Lync patch? KB2825630
It provides some new features yet not available to be installed with WSUS?
