Yesterday the product group released the August 2010 Cumulative Update for the SharePoint 2007 and 2010 product family.

The KB articles are not yet available (as usual it will take a couple more days to get these through the required release process) but the fixes can already be downloaded.

As soon as the KB articles are live they can be found at the following locations:

  • KB 2276474 - WSS 3.0
  • KB 2276472 - MOSS 2007
  • KB 2352346 - SharePoint Foundation 2010
  • KB 2352342 - SharePoint Server 2010
  • KB 2352345 - SharePoint Server 2010 with Project Server

As you see there is a separate Full Server Package for SharePoint Server 2010 with Project Server which simplifies patching of this common installation.

The Full Server Packages for August 2010 CU can be downloaded here:

After installing the fixes you need to run the SharePoint 2010 Products Configuration Wizard on each machine in the farm.

For more details on SharePoint updates have a look at the Update Center for Microsoft Office, Office Servers, and Related Products.

  • Hi Stefan,

    I've just tried to download the August 2010 SharePoint 2007 server rollup CUs and they are 'unavailable'. Same with the June 2010 ones. Any ideas of what's going on?

    Thanks for any help, Alex.

  • Hi Alex,

    you might have picked a bad time. Once a week the hotfixes are repackaged with a new password phrase. During this time the hotfix packages are unavailable. Try again later in this situation.



  • Stefan,

    We are on version and would like to upgrade to the latest patch set. Do you see any issues? Also, you mention the reason for the smaller packages is do to the lack of support for SP1 any more. When you say this are you referring to the SharePoint infrastructure? Or the end users OS (2000, XP, Vista, Win 7)


  • Hi sp442,

    there are no known issues when upgrading from 6504 to the latest patch.

    Regarding the smaller packages: I meant SharePoint SP. A hotfix has to contain all fixes from the oldest supported baseline.

    If the baseline is SP1 then all fixes which have been released since SP1 have to be included in the patch.

    If SP2 is the baseline, then fixes between SP1 and SP2 don't have to be included any more.



  • Hi Stefan,

    I want to install August cumulative update for WSS V3 and MOSS 2007 , but I did install the CU for April and February on that MOSS Farm. Should I install also all CUs on this order February, April, and August? Does the last one contain the previous updates?

  • Hi Marius,

    the fixes are "cumulative" updates because they contain all previous updates. So it is always sufficient to install the latest service pack plus the latest CU.



  • Stefan,

    Have you any idea when the October cumulative updates will be released?

    My query is based on the fact that I'm hoping the MS10-072 vulnerability will be included in this release.



  • Hi Adam,




  • Hi, Stefan, i am a little confused, i hope you can help me out to find the right answers.

    Should i Install the June CU's in order to be able to install the August CU's?

    I am planning to Deply Sharepoint Farm with project server, Should i install :

    # Download SharePoint Foundation 2010 August 2010 CU

    # Download SharePoint Server 2010 August 2010 CU

    # Download SharePoint Server 2010 with Project Server August 2010 CU

    Or Should be enough just installing

    # Download SharePoint Foundation 2010 August 2010 CU

    # Download SharePoint Server 2010 with Project Server August 2010 CU

    What about The October CU?

    Is it stable and safe to install? or instead itr will lead to problems, i read that it messed environments after being installed.

    Thanks in advance for your time Stefan


  • Hi Loogares,

    the only fix you have to install is "SharePoint Server 2010 with Project Server August 2010 CU".

    Oct and Dec CU introduced some problems related to navigation on some systems which will be fixed in Feb 2011 CU which is planned to be released next week.
