Lync 2013 / SfB 2015 Client Update – January 2018

Happy new year! It’s barely January and we have a fresh update to the client – albeit a relatively small one, but with what looks like a doozie of a fix. Our December update took us to 15.0.4989.1000 and today Kb 4011638 nudges us up a few builds to 15.0.4997.1000.

What’s Fixed

This update fixes the following issues:

  • Kb 4057706 FIX: Skype meetings not found when joining meetings

What’s New / Changed

Nothing documented.

Known Issues

Nothing documented.


We saw a couple of pre-req updates last year, but if you’re current then you’re OK today.

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).



Current Version


Update for Office 2013 (KB3054853) (NOTE 1 BELOW) 1.0 9 June 2015
LyncHelpLoc (kb3191937) 1.0 22 May 2017
Microsoft Office 2013 Language Pack Service Pack 1 (KB2817427) 1.0 13 February 2014

NOTE1: “You do not have to apply update KB3054853 if you applied the April 14, 2015, update (KB2889923) or the May 12, 2015, security update (KB3039779) for Lync 2013 (Skype for Business)”


This is the client fix itself:

  • x86 (lync2013-kb4011638-fullfile-x86-glb.exe)
  • x64 (lync2013-kb4011638-fullfile-x64-glb.exe)


I have all the pre-req’s already installed, had exited the client before we started & was not prompted for a reboot.
