[German]As of September 6, 2022 (first Tuesday of the month), Microsoft has released non-security updates for versions of Microsoft Office that are still supported. This month, there are updates for Microsoft Office 2013 and 2016, fixing an Excel issue that has been nagging for weeks. Here's 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 (KB5002251): This update fixes an issue where you receive an "Invalid password" error message when you try to open a Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) project by using the correct password. This issue occurs after security update KB5002112 is installed.
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 respective linked KB article. By the way, Office 2016 is out of mainstream support on October 13, 2020, but will still receive security updates until October 14, 2025. Details and instructions for downloading and installing the updates can be found in the linked KB articles.
This Office version still gets security updates until April 2023. This month there were two update packages, among others to fix an Excel bug (thanks to Sebastian for pointing it out). I had described the problem in the blog post Issue with Excel 2013 Update KB5002242 (August 9, 2022): Excel files located on a network share trigger an error message with a warning when opened.
- Update for Microsoft Excel 2013 (KB5002268): This update fixes an issue that incorrectly displays a warning about a file format and extension conflict when you open a file from a network location that has a long file path.
- Update for Microsoft Office 2013 (KB5002252):This update fixes an issue that causes users to receive an error message when they run a Visual Basic Applications (VBA) macro that is associated with files or folders whose names are in languages that contain double-byte characters, such as Japanese, Korean, and Chinese. This issue occurs after security update 5002121 is installed.
The update is provided automatically via Windows Update, but can also be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Center and installed manually. The download addresses can be found in the respective linked KB article.
