Over the weekend Microsoft re-released the Lync 2013 client update to the world. If you remember this is the patched which was pulled from the shelves last week due to a bug in the software update.

As part of the patch, it comprises of three updates which needs to be run in a particular order.

To install this Lync 2013 update, make sure that the following updates are installed.

Updates for Office first

MSO (KB2727096)
MSORES (KB2817624)
IDCRL (KB2817626)

and then the actual lync client update

These patches come in both the 32bit and 64bit formats based on your Office client deployment.

You can find details of the downloads here Also you will find the KB articles which relate to the downloads.

NOTE: On installation within my lab I was finding the presence between Outlook and Lync not working as expected. At the time of writing im still evaluating if this is a actual issue. Reports are others are seeing this issue as well.

Hello All

Yesterday Microsoft released a new Lync client update as part of the windows update. (its also available via a download here. there doesn’t seem to be much of information about the update apart from in also has the other patches within it..

The issue this patch is fixing is

– After you wake up the computer from hibernation mode, Lync 2013 becomes very slow and unusable.
