SharePoint 2013 Service Pack 1 Rereleased

Just as promised, Microsoft has rereleased Service Pack 1 for SharePoint 2013. Hopefully this time with fewer bugs. I haven’t taken it for a full test drive yet, so this blog post will likely get updated in the next few days.

If you have already installed SP1 on your farm, install this new SP1 on top of it, then run the Config Wizard, like you would with any other patch. If you’re at some lower patch level, use the same steps.

Here are some links.

SharePoint Foundation – KBDownload

SharePoint Server – KBDownload

Project Server – KBDownload

Office Web Apps – KBDownload

I have not added this to my SharePoint 2013 Builds Page yet. I’m busy at SPTechCon right now, but I’ll get it added soon.




update OWA sp1 KB article

Hi Todd,
note that Office web apps SP1 has an updated KB article at
Due to a known issue also note that the update SP1 release is also available via windows/Microsoft update on the OWA servers.

Language Packs SP1

Hi Todd,

Would you happen to know if the Language Packs SP1 was also affected and if so will there be a re-release? Being part of a Global organisation I've installed every language pack available for SP2013 and Office Web Apps Server 2013 so I'm keen to have everything patched correctly.

Get-SPProduct -Local

After the EXE ran on all machines in the farm (and before the SP Config Wizard) I needed to run this magic command:

Get-SPProduct -Local

This seems to refresh the knowledge about which server has which KB patch installed.  SP Config Wizard ran perfectly after this PowerShell command.

Poor Quality Service Packs

It seems that in the new Cloud first strategy Microsoft have sacrificed product quality for on premise service packs.

Repeated issues with recent service packs on SharePoint 2013, Exchange 2013 and Office 2013 fill me with dismay.

In the early days of PCs we were used to flaky software updates. Microsoft was the primary factor in improving product quality and reliability. No longer true.

I am losing trust in Microsoft after 20 years being a strong supporter.

Re: Poor Quality Service Packs

While Microsoft's strategy is clearly cloud first I don't think that figures in to this at all. The software is infinitely more complicated than it was 20 years ago, and the attack vectors are infinitely larger. And the stakes are higher.

I certainly don't like broken service packs, but I completely understand how it happens.
