Notice

This update is no longer available. To fix the issues that are described in this article, install the latest Microsoft Office update from the following Microsoft Docs article:

Latest updates for versions of Office that use Windows Installer (MSI)

This article describes update KB2920679 for Microsoft Office 2016 that was released on October 13, 2015. This update has a prerequisite.

Be aware that the update in Download Center applies to Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2016. It doesn't apply to the Office 2016 Click-to-Run editions such as Microsoft Office 365 Home. (How to determine?)

Improvements and fixes

Fixes the following issues:

  • Files are merged unexpectedly in Office 2016 applications in background if files are in local working conflict.

  • Office 2016 applications may crash when you open a document from OneDrive during coauthoring.

  • Assume that you coauthor a document in Microsoft Word 2016. Then, you leave the real-time collaboration session. When you resume the session in Word 2016, Word 2016 freezes.

  • Using Word 2016 to open a file that's stored on SharePoint 2013 will lock the file on the server, and may prevent other users from editing the file during coauthoring.
