    Is this a security update?

  4. Ed says:

    Installed it 6 months ago when it came out. 4.5.3 is out for developers and a rumored 4.6 will be out soon.
    @Harry Johnston : Not a security update. Replaces 4.0, 4.5 and 4.5.1.

  5. Terry Miller says:

    Did this get released for WSUS? I see it available via Microsoft Update but the update doesn’t appear in the my SCCM 2012 Software Updates despite syncing WSUS.

  6. Terry Miller says:

    ^^Never mind^^ It’s classified as a feature pack, and feature packs weren’t enabled in the WSUS configuration.
