Current Windows Server 2012 / R2 & Windows 8 / 8.1 Update Rollups


This list is current up to January 2015. *Edit* Never say never, there is a May 2016 update for Windows Server 2012 R2, check below for details. Fixed notes for post Windows 2012 R2 April 2014 updates. There are some wikis also being maintained by MVPs: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/23820.list-of-rollup-updates-for-windows-8-and-windows-server-2012.aspx, http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/23823.list-of-rollup-updates-for-windows-8-1-and-windows-server-2012-r2.aspx.

I wanted to get them all on one page formatted. The links are also changed over to support2.microsoft.com.

Remember Update Rollups are not cumulative, so later updates do not necessarily have fixes from previous updates: http://blogs.technet.com/b/askpfeplat/archive/2013/05/13/update-rollups-for-windows-server-2012-and-windows-8-explained.aspx

  2. WayneD says:

    I think you will find that the April 2014 rollup for Windows 8.1 (referred in some circles as 'Update 1') was a cumulative rollup which included all previous operating system fixes (Quoting KB2919355: "This update is a cumulative update that includes the
    security updates and the non-security updates for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 that were released before March, 2014".

  3. PL says:

    Thanks for confirming Wayne – this one threw us as well….MS would be nice if you would name any cumulative ones differently in future – here's a thought – maybe call it a service pack 🙂

  4. Ben says:

    The November 2014 Update Rollup includes everything since April 2014, so that counts as a cumulative update as well.

  5. thomas says:

    There are some issues with the latest media that includes the November 2014 update rollup. Please find details here:

    Thanks for this, are you going to update if applicable.

  7. UR_h8er says:

    Does anybody know why no Update Rollups released since December 2014?

  8. Anonymous says:

    Wondered the same thing so we asked our Microsoft TAM. We were told that Microsoft has been focused on security updates in the first quarter rather than rollups, but they would be releasing some when they were available. No word on when that would happen
    though.

  9. No more rollup? says:

    What happened to the monthly update rollup? Nothing since January and no communication from Microsoft about it.

  10. Darren Milne says:

    Isnt KB3027209 a March 2015 Rollup ?

  11. Marcel Buehring says:

    @Darren: NO!

  12. So to sum it all up (and please correct me if I'm wrong):

    – December 2014 is the last rollup pack and will probably be the last one since MSFT's focus is now on W2016.

    It took me a while to slipstream these patches the correct way using DISM, because even after that WSUS was still trying to install them. Turns out I had the order wrong so, for everyone who's having the same problems as me and has absolutely no clue at all
    which rollups to install (because I guess it makes sense when you install a rollup you still need the previous rollup) use this order:

    – First install KB2919442 (This is a mandatory update required by kb2919355)
    – Next install KB2919355
    – Then install KB3000850
    – Finally, add KB3013769

    Then you have all updates mentioned in this article and you are on December 2014. If you slipstream patches with DISM like me, install the server with these patches slipstreamed in that order. Next run Windows Update on that server and install all patches available
    until now. Use that as reference image to slipstream all patches from December 2014 until now.

    Cheers! 🙂
