SharePoint Server 2013 with SP1 ("slipstream") is now available for download

You can now download SharePoint 2013 with SP1 from MSDN and VLSC and MPN.

A couple of people already tried to create their own slipstream version using RTM and SP1. Please avoid doing this as this is unsupported due to a change in the package layout which was introduced with March 2013 PU. Due to this change in the package layout it is not guaranteed that the manually created slipstream version will update all modules correctly. Ensure to download the official SharePoint 2013 with SP1 from one of the above listed sites.

    do you have any links to the slipstream package?

  3. Hi Matt,

    just log in to the one of the sites I mentioned above (whichever you are eligible to use) and you should find the bits pretty easily.

    Hello Stefan,
    We are transitioning this week from TFS2010 to TFS2013 on W2012R2, this makes the SharePoint2010 transition far friendlier. I just want to confirm before starting my testing, I can now use the SharePoint2013w/SP1 slipstream ISO available on MSDN to install directly onto a fresh W2012R2 install?
    Thanks Stefan

    Hello again Stefan!
    That SP1 Slipstream link directly above my post answered my question above, glad to hear it's a one step install, thanks for the blog post here, you had one of the 1st posts to this new release.
    Thanks again,

  9. anonymouscommenter says:

    Are we getting Office Web Apps server 2013 with SP1 slip stream as well?

  10. Hi Peruri, afaik no. You can install RTM on 2012 R2 and upgrade to SP1 afterwards.

  11. anonymouscommenter says:

    SP1 is now available for SharePoint Server 2013, Project Server 2013, Project 2013, and SharePoint Designer

    Hi Stefan,
    is there the same kind of limitation / risk for slipstreaming SP1 in SharePoint 2013 LPs ? I wasn't able to find slipstreamed sources on MSDN …
    Many thanks,

  13. Hi Ludovic,
    you can slipstream the language packs if you like.

  14. Hi Ludovic,

    I received feedback that it is planned to have LP with SP1 available from download center in a couple of days.
    So – no need to slipstream if you can wait till then.

    Hi Stefan,
    Can you please tell me the direct link for slipstream download on SP2013 SP1.

    The one mentioned above is SharePoint Foundation 2013 with SP1 and I am looking SP Server 2013 with SP1.

    Just to clarify… Can I install it directly on Windows Server 2012 R2? No need to install SP2013 RTM first.

    I saw in above comments that you have mentioned to click one of the above links. I can't seem to find any links.

    Please help ASAP.

  17. Hi Harry,

    these bits are available on VLSC, MSDN and MPN.
    Please login to one of these portals (depending on your license) and you will quickly find the bits.

    Hi Stefan,

    Thanks a lot for the information. I downloaded one from MSDN site. It is a 2.7 GB file.

    Please answer that Can I install it directly on Windows Server 2012 R2? No need to install SP2013 RTM first?

  19. anonymouscommenter says:

    Thanks heaps Stefan,

    I finally got it installed on Windows server 2012 R2. All is up and running.

    I'm searching a possibility to download Sharepoint 2013 SP1 German (slipstream). Can anyone help me with that?

  21. Hi Martin,

    if you are talking about SharePoint Foundation 2013, see here:

    if you are talking about SharePoint Server 2013 please check on one of the following portals- based on your eligibility: VLSC, MSDN, MPN.

    Is there an upgrade approach tested and documented for customers already on SharePoint 2013 on Windows Server 2012 that need to upgrade to Windows Server 2012 "R2" and SharePoint 2013 Service Pack 1 ?

  23. anonymouscommenter says:


    I'd also like to know that. Particularly, I do not know such a document, but it has been always a recommended practice doing this kind of procedure by testing it in a test environment. I would do that this way:

    1. Test everything
    2. Update SP
    3. Test everything
    4. Upgrade OS
    5. Test everything

    I think it would be important this order, because Windows Server 2012 R2 is not supposed to support SharePoint Server 2013 before SP1 version.

    Since you have gotten a detailed checklist and mitigate the issues, apply this on production environment, observing this recent warning from MS about SP1:

  24. anonymouscommenter says:

    Hmm. I guess you guys (MS) should just take down the Sharepoint Server 2013 evaluation download links then, right? Since those aren't slipstream versions of the product, they are completely useless in that they simply cannot be installed! My evaluation results so far? Doggie doo-doo. 🙁

  25. Hi James,
    The eval version is RTM and can be installed on all OS which are supported for RTM.
    So it is not useless.

  26. anonymouscommenter says:

    Hi Stephan,

    I have installed SharePoint 2013 with French language Pack last year and planning to install SP1 for SharePoint. Will the Language Pack be updated be default or I need to update it manually.


  27. Hi Tim,
    you need to install SP1 for each language pack separately.

  28. anonymouscommenter says:

    I want to trail SharePoint Server 2013 SP1 on WS 2012 R2. However, the trial download site only offers the RTM version of SharePoint Server 2013. Is there someplace to download a trial of the slipstreamed SharePoint Server 2013 SP1 for prospective customers?

  29. Hi Mike,
    sorry that is not available. You need to evaluate on a different OS.

  30. anonymouscommenter says:

    If you want it "close to the metal" without installing a server OS, you can now decide for

    I don't know how often you or your team check(s) this archive thread – but perhaps for you, or anyone coming upon it (after searching extensively for a solution to the Server 2012R2 and SharePoint 2013 incompatibilities I'm writing this.

    1)For anyone just interested in the basics- SharePoint FOUNDATION 2013 (Slip streamed with SP1) and Server 2012R2 are compatible. (this again found after much searching!)

    2)That said- Foundation is weakened and is missing a lot of business/office 2013 connectivity options as well as any performance metric options. I'd really wanted to try these – only to find many of the features and templates simply missing.

    A Handy comparison is here:

    So I have to echo some of the previous comments. If something is named 2012, and the other 2013- Perhaps it's logical to make the full 2013 eval SharePoint compatible with the full and latest 2012R2 Eval. I know it's a marketing name convention- but still…
    It's not enough to say "It's not available"

    One has to dig deep in the Eval Download section for the throwaway line (scroll and plus icon for software requirements)

    "Windows Server 2012 R2 is only supported on a SharePoint Server 2013 Service Pack 1 environment. For additional information about Windows Server 2012 R2 support, see SharePoint 2013 SP1 support in Windows Server 2012 R2."

    How hard would it be to simply put the full slipstreamed version up for eval. How can an organization evaluate something which doesn't work for the things Share Point is useful for (Business Intelligence linked to full Office 2013 client installs)


    Can someone name something "SharePoint Server 2012 WITH Service Pack 1" So that we know it's slip streamed and not just the service pack? Again – not your normal marketing naming convention- but given all the conflicting information out there regarding this
    particular service pack (its earlier recall etc) some clarity is in order.

    More clarity and consistency across product lines/teams from Microsoft would be a welcome change.

  32. Aaron W says:

    Hi Stefan,
    I agree with C. Mills.

    1) Offering a evaluation version of 2013 SP1 that can install on Windows Server 2012 R2 would be useful.

    I just spent the time standing up a 2012 R2 server and installing SQL server to painfully discover that I can’t install on R2. Ouch.

    We don’t have a MSDN license, so I can’t download a slip streamed version of 2013 Server sp1



  33. anonymouscommenter says:

    I agree with the previous posting. It is staggering how difficult and frustrating it is trying to find the correct software.

    SharePoint SP1 correct release have version 15.0.4571.1502.

    I checked my environment, and I have 15.0.4569.1509. I have been told that if I installed SharePoint2013w/SP1 slipstream ISO available on MSDN, I am not affected with SP1 bug, and version is correct. How do I know if this is correct? How can I check my environment
    to confirm that I am not affected?

  36. Hi Lori,

    the only reason for the re-release was that no further hotfix could be installed on top.

    Slipstream did not have the problem.
    When you plan to install a post-SP1 CU in the future you will see if it works or not.
    If you have problems just install the re-released SP1 on top of your install.


  37. anonymouscommenter says:

    just the hint – that you need to install SP1 additionally to the MSDN-Slipstreamed! + SP1-Languagepacks, if you like to apply April 2015 CU … (see April 2015 Posts)

  38. anonymouscommenter says:

    Any plans to make SharePoint 2013 WITH SP1 available in the Technet Evaluation Center?

  39. Hi Vikas,
    not that I’m aware of.

  40. anonymouscommenter says:

    That's not good!
    Currently Setting up Lync 2013 with Exchange 2013 on Hyper-Vs for testing and personal education in this field…everything now running fine…wanted to Setup SharePoint 2013…and then this obstacle with the missing SP1 in the eval…why???

  41. Hi UKL,
    I’m the wrong person to complain about this.
    Don’t shoot the messenger! 😉

  42. anonymouscommenter says:

    Thanks Stefan. I won't shoot the messenger, but perhaps the messenger can take a message to the powers that be? After all, how long will it take to update the TechNet Evaluation page? Half a day? Does not convey a good impression of the SharePoint team…

  43. Hi Vikas, I did that already in the past and the info I got I that there are currently no plans to update the evaluation version. That’s what I forwarded to you.

  44. anonymouscommenter says:

    Where's the link to download? The only thing I can find on MSDN is the foundation installer with sp1. Tried to slipstream SP1 into the Server install and it doesn't appear to go based on the farm version check afterwards.

  45. Hi Raleigh,
    as you have to logon to the MSDN site using your MSDN credentials to download I cannot post a link as there is no public link to the binaries.
    But if you login to MSDN site and search für SharePoint you will find it.

    1. Ralph Dalton says:

      Hi Stefan,
      I need to know how to get hold of a Supported SW_DVD5_SharePoint_Server_2013_64Bit_French_+ SP1 (mark 2) as it is stated that making our own slipstream is NOT SUPPORTED. There are no slipstreamed international versions on MSDN subscriptions that I can find.

      Having an unsupported SharePoint is not an option for my customer and I am getting the old appfabric install errors.

      can you help?

      1. MSDN bits are not for production use. They must only be used for development.
        For production usage please download the binaries from the VLSC. Afaik here you can find all languages.

      2. MSDN bits are not for production use. For production ensure to use the bits from VLSC. Afaik here you can find all languages.

  46. how can I identify the SharePoint installation media (iso file) that I have if it is included SP1 or not ?
    thanks for help

    Hi Stefan
    I have joined in a role and got assigned patching the sharepoint 2013 servers with current Jan 2016 cu , since it has been patched with current update to date “Update for Microsoft SharePoint Enterprise Server 2013 (KB3114497) 64-Bit Edition version Installed 15.0.4787.1000 and Microsoft Document Lifecycle Components English Language Pack
    15.0.4569.1506 Installed
    my colleague has informed that sharepoint 2013 with slip stream (sp1)was installed so no need of updated service pack1 needed .I did not see any service pack1 installed with KB in patch update in Central Admin .
    How do I validate the slipstream installed works and still need to install updated service pack 1 in April 2014 .I appreciate for the advise .

    1. Hi Ravi,
      if you managed to install a post SP1 CU you are fine. The re-release of SP1 was required as the original one prevented further CUs from installing.
      The slipstream was not affected by this issues.
