How does one always locate the most current MS Project 2013 Software upgrades/patches? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    On a laptop we have MS Project 2013 loaded with SP1 and updates current through September 2016 (we think).

    We were trying to get to Microsoft Project 2013 (15.0.4849.1000) MSO (15.0.4849.1000) 32 bit or a version that is higher that another program is using in another State.

    After applying the patches through September 2016, our MSO number is lower than (15.0.4849.1000)

    What specific location can someone go consistently to find the most current patch to download updates to MS Project 2013 software to bring it up-to-date each time?  It took awhile on the internet to find the September 2016 one.

    Ours systems department shut off windows update so we can not use that

    Thanks

    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Office-Updates-a118ec61-f007-492f-bfa5-5a6f764d5471

    But I think it will point to the same KB.

    Since those are official references from MS and we are not from MS on this forum, if you detect some discrepencies, you should open a support ticket.

  • Hotmail1,

    My hunch is that your IT department has a support relationship with Microsoft and they can open a support ticket?

  • Thanks but actually it does not

    The blog is what we had found but it did not get us to the higher MSO number MSO (15.0.4849.1000) 

    What we ended up with by downloading and applying that September patch is Microsoft Project 2013 (15.0.4859.1000)  MSO (15.0.4569.1506) 32 bit

    There has to be a way that people get the latest patches to this software besides through windows update

    Can someone help with this?

  • Thanks This actually pointed to an August download as the most recent so it doesn't have the September one pointed out in the Blog. 1. I guess the question is....if this is the site to go to for all the upgrades than why doesn't it have the September fix? 2. ....and how does one get the MSO fixes? 3. Where does one open a support ticket and how does one watch the progress of that ticket? Thanks
