.NET version and a fresh install of Exchange 2013 CU17.... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am a bit confused by all of the .NET 4.6.x and Exchange 2013\2016 talk. I have a server 2012 R2 DataCenter edition virtual server with .NET 4.6.2 already installed (not 4.7) that will act as my stand-alone Exchange 2013 server (it will co-exist with our stand-alone Exchange 2010 server). For the Exchange install I assume I can just download and install CU 17 for Exchange 2013, then make sure I do not install .NET 4.7?

  • Yes.

    You can use this technique to block .NET Framework 4.7.

  • Hi Jason,

    Yes, you can install CU17 for Exchange 2013 directly, as CUs are a complete installation of Exchange 2013 and can be used to install a fresh server or to update a previously installed one.

  • Thank you I will mark this as answered. Regarding patches released by MS, is there a site I can subscribe to so I am alerted about "bad" patches or issues caused by patches? I got lucky this time, I just stumbled across the .NET article.
