We have a November update to the Lync client. Read all about KB2899507 here.
This update takes the Lync 2013 Client to 15.0.4667.1000/1001.
- 3010340 Video freezes consistently for two second-intervals when you make a video call in Lync 2013
- 3009723 Incorrect format of string in a trace statement when application sharing session viewers stop viewing in a conference
- 3009722 Memory leak occurs when you start a peer-to-peer application sharing session in Lync 2013
- 3009721 Lync 2013 crashes when you join a meeting that is hosted on Lync Server 2010 as an anonymous user
- 3009719 Lync 2013 freezes when a toast notification of a call appears
Nothing that I can see.
Screen-readers appear to be an ongoing problem – unchanged from the known issues list of previous updates:
- 2898357 Screen readers cannot read aloud keystrokes during a Lync 2013 application or desktop sharing session in Windows
- 2932389 Persistent Chat file transfer fails between an external user and an internal user in Lync 2013
One of these has also been updated since the last update:
|Office 2013 MSO (KB2899493)||x86
|1.0||4 November 2014|
|1.0||6 Sept 2013|
|1.0||6 May 2014|
|1.0||2 August 2014|
As with the October update, IDCRL is no longer listed as a pre-req. I’ve left it here scratched out just for the time being…
The Install Process
I’ve converted to using Tom’s great “install-hotfixes” PowerShell module to install my updates these days. Here’s the output. Note that I’ve dropped ALL of the pre-req’s in the one folder (including the old ones I already believe I have installed) and am letting them fight it out:
Alas, yes – although the KB says no. The MSO update set the reboot flag apparently. (Click the image for a more legible view).
Before & After
Here’s a before and after comparison of an x86 client on a Windows 7 machine.

3009719 Lync 2013 freezes when a toast notification of a call appears
I started to be happy, as I am struggling such an issue on all of our company-imaged laptops (cannot start or receive any kind of calls, all such attempt immediately freezes the Lync2013 application, it has to be killed from TaskManager). So I visit the KB article to see under what circumstances the issue surfaces. The answer: NADA, thats not my business. Pathetic the quality of B articles and issues descriptions MS is releasing in the last 2-3 years.
Seems moderating comments is not your favorite past time activity :S
It’s the wading through the spam that’s the bigger deterrent… :-(
I see what you mean. But if you dont moderate valid comments from your readers, they will abandon your blog, or wont comment some useful reply to your posts. You get spam even with this “math-captcha” active?
