[German]On May 3, 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, which fixes issues in Access 2016, among others. Here is a short 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 via 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 Access 2016 (KB5002048): This update fixes an issue where Microsoft Access cannot be closed when a tool (such as Speech Output) is running by using the Windows Accessibility API.
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 will still get security updates until October 14, 2025. It is therefore astonishing that such functional bug fixes are still being made – although the bug was probably too serious not to be fixed. Details as well as instructions for downloading and installing the updates can be found in the linked KB articles.
This Office version will still get security updates until April 2023, but there was no patch in May 2022. Office 2010 has been out of support since October 2020 and has also not received an update.
