Lync 2013 / SfB 2015 Client Update – May 2017

Our May update to the Office 2013-based Lync/SfB client (Kb 3191876) follows last month’s update and takes us from 15.0.4919.1000 to 15.0.4927.1000.

What’s Fixed

This update fixes the following issues:

  • Kb 4019641 Updates the meeting invitation to let mobile client join PSTN calls with one-tap in Skype for Business 2015 (Lync 2013)
  • Kb 4019640 Hebrew words in instant messages are displayed in reverse order in Skype for Business 2015 (Lync 2013)
  • Kb 4019639 Displays a message when you sign in Skype for Business 2015 (Lync 2013) without network connection

What’s New / Changed

Nothing documented.

Known Issues

None documented.

Pre-Req’s

We had a new one last month and we have ANOTHER this month! 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?!
