Strangely, this did not appear too much in any searches. Consider the following:
- You have Office patches distributed via WSUS to your network
- Machines report back they need Windows patches without an issue
- A very small number, or zero in my case, report back they need Office patches when in fact you are aware there are patches available
- This started happening after April 2015.
Microsoft have just recently released a post announcing the end of RTM support for Office 2013 as of April 2015. Therefore, unless Office SP1 is installed, no soup for you since April!
Makes sense from a stability and security point of view, but I find it rather odd that it was only announced on June 9.
My test lab is now reporting back, hungry for Office updates. Hope this helps someone.
