This is the new continued page about all recently published cumulative updates, service packs and related info all around MOSS 2007 and WSSv3 since SP3.

For any older MOSS/WSSv3 build numbers and/or update information, please check the previous page!

find a similar list here For SharePoint 2010/Foundation (WSSv4)
and find here the SharePoint 2013 Build Numbers and CU's post.

Since we are now beyond service pack 3 for MOSS/WSS and due to the looooong, loooooong list of historical updates, I created a new, fresh and smarter Cube Sheet for faster lookup Winking smile

So this page refers and applies to MOSS 2007 (aka Microsoft Office SharePoint Server) and WSSv3 (aka Windows SharePoint Services v3).

We start here with the last Service pack 3 and all following cumulative updates.

Last Update: 2013-12-13

Note! Updates marked with )** are post SP hotfixes, that requires the last prior released Service Pack installed before applying these CU's!

Note! Service Pack 3 contains a roll-up of all cumulative and public updates since SP2 for both Office Client and applications as well as SharePoint Servers, in addition to some new fixes for issues discovered during the lifecycle of SP2!
        Because Office service packs are cumulative, you do not have to install Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2 before you install Service Pack 3. Service Pack 3 includes all fixes which were included in Service Pack 1 and Service Pack 2.

  • Good Stuff..Steve

  • Great article Steve (as always :-)),

    I just have a question on the MOSS 2007/ WSS3.0 SP3 - for both products you mentioned DLL versions to be 12.0.6606.1000. However when I upgraded to SP3 in my MOSS 2007 environment (from SP2) including LP I get as below:

    1. From Central Admin I’m seeing farm version “12.0.0.6608”

    2. Microsoft.sharepoint.portal.dll – version after SP3 install 12.0.6604.1000

    3. Microsoft.SharePoint.dll – version after SP3 install 12.0.6608.1000

    4. Dbo.Versions for the content DBs show 12.0.0.6608 except for the SSP DB which is 12.0.6608.1000

    Should I be worried about this mismatch on the DLL (from \12\ISAPI)?

    Appreciate any feedback!

  • Hi BlueSky,

    the central admin page is pulling the file version from the Microsoft.SharePoint.dll - so this is the correct version you'll see there.

    It is correct, that the SP3 file version was increased becasue when a regression was detecetd, the next better version gets publsihed and depending on when you have downloaded the SP,

    this might be the latest one which is then of course the higher one.

    So no worries, its all ok with your buoild numbers, I have corrected it already to avoid further confusions.

    thanks for the hint and cheers, Steve

  • Thanks Steve for your quick response!

    Is this normal seeing Microsoft.sharepoint.portal.dll and Microsoft.sharepoint.dll versions different though? In my case they are 12.0.6604.1000 and 12.0.6608.1000 respectively.

  • Hi BlueSky,

    well, not necessarily always but it can be. The DLL's will get another version if tehy are touched by update but the Microsoft.SharePoint.dll is every time changed when a CU gets created, so this is the most recent version and indicator for your status.

    The Microsoft.sharepoint.portal.dll aside with many other dll's might not always being touched and thus doesnt get updated in version. Only if there was a change, then the version will increase as well.

    Again, no worries about the versions. If you have the Microsoft.sharepoint.dll aligned with the described version from the CU/KB description, then you're fine.

    if some other DLL's are not exact same version, this might be by design.

    cheers, Steve

  • Okay understood - thanks again Steve!!

  • Hi Steve, we have a MOSS 2007 SharePoint with SP3 installed. I installed CU June CU 13 )** 12.0.6679.5001 2817329, from the Upgrade.log there was no errors. I proceeded to run Configuration Wizard. I see microsoft.sharepoint.portal.dll updated 12.0.6668.500 however microsoft.sharepoint.dll still stay at 12.0.6608.1000. Per your post on 20 Aug 2012 9:17 AM above, you noted that microsoft.sharepoint.dll should be updated on every CU to match the build number. In this case should it be updated to 12.0.6679.5001? Thanks!

  • Hi Steve per you comment above 20 Aug 2012 9:17 AM, "The DLL's will get another version if tehy are touched by update but the Microsoft.SharePoint.dll is every time changed when a CU gets created, so this is the most recent version and indicator for your status" Is this true for all CUs? We have MOSS 2007 with SP3 installed, I recently installed June 13 CU (12.0.6679.5001) and notice Microsoft.SharePoint.dll stayed with 12.0.6608.1000. Should it have updated to 12.0.6679.5001? Thanks in advance.

  • @Alexi: well at least with MOSS, the DLL always was changed and hence reflecting the build version as it is told in the according KB article. From SPS2010 or 2013 meanwhile the Microsoft.sharepoint.dll is NOT always patched and hence the version might differ from the one stated in its KB. So the best way to check and make sure is query the config DB on table dbo.versions and find it there. But in your case, the Microsoft.sharepoint.dll must have been updated in any case as your last version of 12.0.6608.1000 is SP3 while the version 12.0.6679.5001 is the latest CU from june 2013 and hence must have been changed at least once! Are you sure, that you did run the config wiz. after installing the CU? kr, Steve
