Small size Feb 2011 CU (for Sharepoint 2007) RRS feed

  • Question

  • June 2010 CU is over 400MB and Feb 2011 CU under 100MB... is that ok? Does Feb 2011 CU address all issues covered by the June 2010 CU? How is that huge size difference possible?

    June2010: wss-kb983311-fullfile-x64-glb.exe 83MB + office-kb983310-fullfile-x64-glb.exe 407MB
    Feb2011: wss-kb2475886-fullfile-x64-glb.exe 36MB + office-kb2475885-fullfile-x64-glb.exe 68MB

    Thanks!

  • Hi diegochb,

    Yes, Feb 2011 CU contains all the updates in June 2010 CU. The reason why the size becomes smaller is because the code is optimized. Any problems in previous CU will resolved in the next CU, so we may need to reduce some code, add some new code or replace the old code with a new version.  All these changes will cause the size of CU changes, sometimes make it larger but sometimes could also make it smaller.

    Any idea if there is any other requirement? KB2475886 only needs SP2...
