Microsoft Office Updates (March 1, 2022)

[German]On March 1, 2022 (first Tuesday of the month), Microsoft releases non-security updates for still-supported versions of Microsoft Office. This month, however, there are only updates for Microsoft Office 2016. Here is a brief overview.


The updates apply to the installable MSI version of Office and are delivered via Windows Update. Click-to-run packages will receive the updates through other channels. For this reason, Office 2019 no longer appears in the list below, where only click-to-run installers are available. Microsoft lists the updates on this page.

Office 2016

The packages are automatically distributed via Windows Update, but can also be downloaded and installed manually via the linked KB articles. This time there were only the following updates:

  • Update for Microsoft Office 2016 (KB5002160): This update fixes an issue where a custom application may crash when you use more than one protocol to connect to Microsoft Access or other Office data (for example, Object Linking and Embedding, Database (OLEDB), Open Database Connectivity (ODBC), or Data Access Objects (DAO)).
  • Update for Skype for Business 2016 (KB5002106):  Upgrades Microsoft Skype for Business 2016 to version 16.0.5290.1000. This update includes the following fix: Links cannot be enabled in Skype for Business options by using the ENTER key  (see).

The update is automatically deployed via Windows Update, but can also be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Center and installed manually. The download addresses can be found in the linked KB article. By the way, Office 2016 is out of mainstream support on October 13, 2020, but still gets security updates until October 14, 2025. From there, I find it amazing that functional fixes to bugs like this are still happening. Details as well as instructions on how to download and install the updates can be found in the linked KB articles.

Office 2013

There were no updates for this version of Office. Office 2010 has been out of support since October 2020 and has also not received an update.
