Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012 SP2 Latest Cumulative Update


Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012 SP3 Latest Cumulative Update

Microsoft® SQL Server® 2014 RTM Latest Cumulative Update


Microsoft® SQL Server® 2014 SP1 Latest Cumulative UpdateAdditionally, all Cumulative Update Knowledge Base (KB) articles started directing customers to this location as Microsoft recommends always installing the most recent updates available.
