Skype for Business 2016 Basic Client Patches RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know if Microsoft plans on releasing updates to this client?  I see the updates for the full version but they obviously don't work with the basic version.

    There's already been a few rounds of patches for the full version but none for the basic?  I'm scratching my head on this...

  • Add me to this issue as well!

    Its a nonsense that security and usability patches are released semi-monthwise for the paid client, but the basic client remains broken / vulnerable due to some unknown communication issue inside Microsoft!

  • Solution!

    Install Sfb 2016 basic v2016.04 fom here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49440

    (if you have RTM Sfb basic, uninistall it first)
    Then you can install Sfb2016 CU 2016.06 from here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3115268

    And this time it will apply the update instead of just throwing some nonsense error message. And voila, you have ABS in Sfb2016 basic + all the fixes that was solved in the big Sfb2016 clients months ago. Enjoy!
