    Just curious…. MS15-110 mentions Sharepoint Server 2010 (2553405), what is this patch as it isn’t mentioned above.
    Thanks

    1. This is the forms server component of SharePoint 2010.

    Hello,
    Does the config database version change upon installing MS15-110?

    1. The following patch includes changes that affect the database schema version: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3085582

    Hi Stefan,

    So after installing these update, do we need to run the psconfig wizard to update the DBs?

    Thnks,

    1. Hi Alan,
      the answer is simple: there is not a single SharePoint fix which does NOT Require psconfig.
      The reason is that PSCONFIG does not only update the db – it does many more things.
      See here for details:

      Cheers,

    And what about the Language pack. I have 5 LPs on my farm with base installation in English. So do I need to download the security update for all the LPs or just the English one?

    Regard,

    1. SharePoint CUs and PUs include the fixes for all language packs. You never have to install them separately for different languages.
      You only have to do this for service packs.
