To make sure that the Access Services feature continues to work and remains supported, Access Services customers should upgrade the following components before they install this security update for SharePoint Server 2016. (These components can also be upgraded after this security update for SharePoint Server 2016 is installed. However, the Access Services feature might no longer work until the components are upgraded.)
