Pre-Req’s

It’s been a while, but we *do* have a pre-req update in this release. If your patching isn’t to current you’ll need to check you have *all* of these pre-req’s. The Office 2013 SP1 requirement still applies if you’re using Outlook 2010. (Lync 2013 in all of its flavours – e.g. Lync Basic – is still a component of Office 2013).

NOTE2: Annoyingly, I was able to install the update on a client PC without updating the pre-req, so who knows what sort of hidden bugs that’s likely to cause?!
