NEWS for Version 1.17

Release date: 2020-01-10
Intended compatibility: WSUS Offline Update 11.8.3

Bug fixes

New method for the calculation of dynamic Office updates

The existing method for the calculation of Office updates required, that the update records in the file package.xml had to be sorted in descending order by the RevisionIds.

This was changed in the WSUS offline scan file from December 2019. The result was, that lots of unrelated files were downloaded to the directories client/ofc/glb, client/ofc/deu and client/ofc/enu.

The new method does not depend on the correct sort order of the file package.xml. It is based on the example script extract-office-locations-v2.bash, which was suggested in the forum article

It is not much tested, though, because I don't have any version of Microsoft Office.

The previous version can be re-enabled again by changing line 47 of the file download-updates-tasks/60-main-updates.bash from:

Code: Select all


Code: Select all


The download links for this version are:
