Lync 2013 / SfB 2015 Client Update – April 2018

What’s with the monthly client update cadence at the moment? No complaints here though: I personally benefit from possibly two of these fixes! The March update took us to 15.0.5015.1000, and our early April update (Kb 4018334) adds 8 builds to hit 15.0.5023.1000.

What’s Fixed

This update fixes the following issues:

  • Kb 4095404 A call to yourself is initiated when you add audio to an existing meeting in Skype for Business
  • Kb 4095405 High memory usage and crash when you receive an HTML message in Skype for Business
  • Kb 4095406 External user can’t sign in Skype for Business that uses TLS-DSK or modern authentication
  • Kb 4095407 Splitter bar in a tabbed conversation window doesn’t show when DPI setting is larger than 100% in Skype for Business
  • Kb 4095408 Repeated “You were added as delegate for” message at every logon in Skype for Business 2015 (Lync 2013)
  • Kb 4095409 Searching chat room history by date returns incorrect results when the date format is other than US format (mm/dd/yy)

What’s New / Changed

Nothing documented.

Known Issues

Nothing documented.

Pre-Req’s

Move on – nothing to see here.

If however 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).
