[German]On April 5, 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..
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 (KB5002141): This update fixes an issue where custom applications crash when you use OLEDB (Object Linking and Embedding, Database) to connect to Microsoft Access databases that contain links to SharePoint lists.
- Update for Microsoft Project 2016 (KB5002132): This update fixes an issue where users cannot save a project in Project Web App if the MPP file has an Enterprise resource (for example, from another server) and the resource name matches an existing Enterprise resource.
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. Office 2016, by the way, dropped out of mainstream support on October 13, 2020, but will still get security updates until October 14, 2025. From there, I find it amazing that such functional fixes to bugs are still happening. Details as well as instructions on how to download and install the updates can be found in the linked KB articles.
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.
