Improvements and Fixes


  • Records page navigation activity in Event Viewer when class notebooks are used.
  • Translates some user interface elements for Skype for Business to multiple languages to make sure the accuracy of the meanings.
  • Fixes the following issues:
    • When you perform a search operation in Outlook 2013, the operation is slow. It takes more than one second to start.
    • When you log on to a computer in a domain that contains roaming profiles, you are still prompted for passwords in Outlook 2013. This issue occurs because the persistence of the saved account credential is Local Machine but not Enterprise.
    • When you start Outlook 2013 as a published remote desktop application, new email message alerts and meeting reminders do not appear in front of the Outlook window.

      Note To resolve this issue, follow the steps in the "Registry Information" section after you apply the update.
    • When you enter incorrect credentials for an account that makes some mailbox connections use Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL) authentication and some connections use basic authentication, you are not prompted to enter credentials again, and Outlook cannot connect to mailboxes by using basic authentication.
    • The Get services on Office Marketplace link on the Research pane in an Office 2013 application is removed because the service is deprecated. You can go to Office Store to find available applications.
    • When you edit a signed workbook that has a signature line in Excel 2013, you cannot sign the workbook again, and the old signature is still displayed.
    • When you use a domain account to sign in to Office Web App in a non-federated domain, you have to enter password manually every time.
    • Most recently used files of cloud sources may not be displayed in an Office 2013 application.
    • When you configure an Outlook account that connects to some mailboxes, two credential prompts are displayed if some connections use RPC over HTTP and others use MAPI over HTTP.

      Note To resolve this issue, follow the steps in the "Registry Information" section after you apply the update.
    • When you enable the Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL)-based authentication for Outlook 2013, you may be unable to add Office 365 accounts that use basic authentication. If you have enabled the ADAL-based authentication for Outlook 2013 that has an Office 365 account configured and the account uses basic authentication, you cannot connect to the account.
    • You cannot use an account that has Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL)-based authentication enabled to sign in to an Azure Active Directory (AAD) federated tenant.
