Two weeks ago I published this post (SharePoint updates are now available through Windows Update) announcing that Microsoft had started distributing SharePoint updates through Windows Update.

As of today Stefan Gossner, Senior Escalation Engineer for SharePoint Products and Technologies, posted the following update on his blog:

«As of March 2015, all Office product updates will be offered via Microsoft Update except for non-security updates for server products. Individual and ‹uber› server product updates will be published only to the Microsoft Download Center and customers can download/schedule/plan/test accordingly.»

This means Microsoft is going back to it’s update stragety as we used to know it before February 2014 CU. However security updates are still available through Windows Update. Read here how to install a cumulative update for SharePoint Server 2013 or SharePoint Server 2010.
