All releases prior to SP1 have been offloaded to this Archive-Page here! If you need to check for previous versions and/or information, you will find it there.

Service Pack 1 will be mandatory requirement for installing any subsequent SharePoint 2013 cumulative updates as the new baseline!
The SharePoint Server 2013 Packs are containing the Foundation Packs and may need only the Server package to be installed!

The Build number shown in your central admin -> servers in farm's site is the version that comes from the configuration database (table dbo.versions). This does not necessarily match the Number outlined in the KB-articles.

Please see here for more information about the SharePoint Build versions and numbers:

If you want to be sure that you have installed the server CU you also can check it in Central Admin -> Upgrade and Migration -> Check product and patch installation status. This will show you the versions installed.

For SP1:
In order to determine if SP1 is installed for Office 2013 or a related product, look for the program version in the list of installed programs in the Programs and Features control panel. If SP1 is installed, the final (fixed) version will be 15.0.4571.1502 or higher. Additionally, if you've installed the SP1 update for an MSI product, SP1 will be listed in Installed Updates in that same control panel.

You can also use this PowerShell script to display version info for installed SharePoint product and language packs

=> Service Pack 1 for SharePoint and Office 2013


  • If your farm has been on a patch level lower than July 2015 CU: Unlike other CUs – after installing the August 2015 CU you need to run the SharePoint 2013 Products Configuration Wizard on each machine in the farm.
    If you don’t run PSCONFIG after installing August 2015 CU (on a farm which had a lower patch level than July 2015 CU) crawl might no longer work – so ensure to schedule a maintenance window when installing this CU which includes PSCONFIG runs.
    => See here for detail:
  • When you install the cumulative update on a single-server SharePoint farm or on SharePoint servers that include Search Service Application topology roles, you should follow the steps that are mentioned on the following Microsoft website:

Office Web Apps Server 2013:

As of  November, 24th, 2014 the Office Web Apps Server will be removed from the Microsoft Download Center.
At that time it will only be available for download under Volume Licensing agreements.
For more information please visit the site Volume Licensing Service Center.

To see which version of the OWA (also called the "Web Access Components" or "WAC") use the following PowerShell:
PS > (Invoke-WebRequest[“X-OfficeVersion”]

  1. I could install SharePoint 2013 using SQL 2016 SP1 without any hassle but don’t see any support documentation from Microsoft. Request to share the compatibility document of SharePoint 2013 and SQL 2016.

    1. Hello Sushil Paudel,

      The answer to this question is no, SharePoint 2013 will never be supported on SQL 2016. (with the exception of SSRS integration, see here for more:

      <underline<In general there is a rule of thumb:

      A SharePoint release will support the latest SQL Server version (n) at the time of release as well as the one previous released version (n-1) and one addition/new release of SQL (n+1).
      For the case of SharePoint 2013, the following SQL versions are supported:

      SQL 2014 = n+1
      SQL 2012 = n or aligned with release of SP2013
      SQL 2008 R2 = n-1

      Hth, cheers, Steve

    Please update the information to latest. There is no information of 2017’s.

    1. @kuniyasu: Yes you are right. I am struggeling with time and haven’t updated my list since a while. Will do it soon,

      sorry for that 🙁

  3. Yuosof Radi says:

    As iam exploring the my eBiz SharePoint farm, i found that all license installed are “SharePoint and Project Server 2013 – 15.0.4420.1017 (RTM)”.
    I need your advise and experience about the best paractice for patching this farm.

    1. Hello Yuosof Radi,

      you can install the SP1 on each server in farm, but if you have Language Packs installed as well, you have to install the respective Service Packs for them too.
      Once done, you have to upgrade to SP1 on all your server in farm, regardless if it is a SharePoint or Project server.
      After that, you should consider to install one of the most recent CU’s as well to stay in-line with the current update/upgrade levels.

      Don’t forget to run psconfig Wizard after each update stage and on each server in farm 😉

      cheers, Steve

    Hi Steve
    currently our prod server is sharepoint 2013 SP1 First release + project server 2013 SP1.
    we want to update it all to the recent ones.
    so please correct our strategies if its wrong:
    1. update Sharepoint SP1 rereleased on all servers
    2. update Project server SP1 with the same build number as Sharepoint Rereleased on all servers
    3. update December 2016 CU sharepoint + project server on all servers
    4. Run psconfig one by one on every server

    is that correct?
    or after step 2.. i need to run psconfig first?


    1. Hello mardi septianto,

      after installed SP1 you should run the PSConfig first before upgrading further to Dec. CU.
      The PSConfig Wizard has to be exec. on each server in farm as well to fully apply the SP1 and schema updates all over the places.

      kr, Steve

  5. Larry says:


    Does SharePoint Online have a version nubmer?

    Thank you.

    1. Hello Larry,

      SPO of course has a build number but you may never use it. Its just internally to track the update/upgrade level and to file bugs against the respective build.
      Why would you need it?

      kr, Steve

  6. S Sathiya_M_ says:

    Hi Steve,

    I would like to update SP1 to November 2016 KB3127933 from the below baseline version.

    DisplayName : Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013
    DisplayVersion : 15.0.4571.1502

    DisplayName : Language Pack for SharePoint and Project Server 2013 -Arabic ???????
    DisplayVersion : 15.0.4420.1017

    DisplayName : Language Pack for SharePoint and Project Server 2013 – French/Français
    DisplayVersion : 15.0.4420.1017

    DisplayName : Microsoft SharePoint Designer 2013
    DisplayVersion : 15.0.4569.1506

    When i was trying to run the CU thru “The expected version of the product was not found on the system.” Could you please help me out here?
    FYR, find the patch status from CA:

    Thanks in advanced.


    1. Hello Sathiya_M,

      your screenshot shows current patch level 15.0.4875.1506 which is equal to “November 2016 CU” so it should be installed already.
      But aside of this, your language packs are not on a proper patch status. They are both (French and arabic) still on RTM version so you need to update the Language packs as well up to SP1 according to the server patch level.
      The SharePoint designer seems on SP1 so only most recent updates here are missing if any. Please find the download for the LP SP1 here: – you need to change the language first, then wati a few seconds until the text shows in the chosen language and now click “Download”.
      HtH, cheers Steve

      1. S Sathiya_M_ says:

        Thank you for your valuable time. I have download and fixed completely.

  7. Bob says:

    Are there any plans of getting Service Pack 2 of SharePoint 2013 Enterprise server in the near future ?

    1. Hi Bob,
      afaik no. Service Packs are usually not only includes all fixes released since RTM. They also may carry some feature upgrades/adds that could enrich the product.
      by now, I’m not able to tell you if this is happening in near future.

      Cheers, Steve

  8. Yannick says:

    Thanks for this amazing post!

  10. Chris says:

    There is no Uber Pack since September’15 ?
    My SP farm is on last September’15 update and I wait for new Uber to update it.

    Thx for your job !

    1. Hello Chris,

      pretty much anyone except two since September 2015 are UBER Packages, so feel free to download any one of the most recent ones.
      cheers, Steve

      1. Chris says:

        Hello Steve,

        Thanks for your response.
        Today when I searched for OWA CU, I looked that :
        According to Stefan Goßner, it seems that May 2016 CU is an Uber Pack.

      2. Chris says:

        Oups, sorry I read too fast your reply. “anyone except two […] are UBER Packages” Thanks ! 🙂

  11. Chris says:

    Our SP 2013 environment is only at SP1 (15.0.4569.1509). To get it fully updated would you recommend do it incrementally or would it be ok to go straight to one of the more recent CU’s?

    1. Hi Chris,

      you can go straight ahead to one of the most recent CU’s on top of SP1 – no need to do it incrementally.
      There are some special cases but very rare where a certain order must be considered not to break the update chain but not since SP1, so you#re good to go.

      greetz, Steve
