July 2019 CU for SharePoint Server 2016 is available for download

The product group released the July 2019 Cumulative Update for SharePoint Server 2016 product family.

This CU also includes Feature Pack 1 which was released with December 2016 CU and Feature Pack 2 which was released with September 2017 CU.

The KB articles for July 2019 CU are available here:

  • KB 4475520 – July 2019 Update for SharePoint Server 2016 (language independent) – This is also a security update!
  • There was no language dependent fix released this month. The most recent language dependent fix is KB 4461507 from April 2019

The download for July 2019 CU is available here:

Important: It is required to install both fixes (language dependent and independent) to fully patch a SharePoint server. This applies also to servers which do not have language packs installed. The reason is that each SharePoint installation includes a language dependent component together with a language independent component. If additional language packs are added later (only) the language dependent fix has to be applied again.

It is irrelevant which language you pick on the drop down in download center. Even the language dependent fixes are all in the same package for all languages.

After installing the fixes you need to run the SharePoint 2016 Products Configuration Wizard on each machine in the farm. If you prefer to run the command line version psconfig.exe ensure to have a look here for the correct options.

  1. After installing this update the farms still showed “Upgrade Required” on each serve in Central Admin. Ran PSConfig wizard again and that fixed it. This happened in every farm where we installed it.


    1. Hi Ash,
      it is expected that the servers in the farm show “Upgrade required” after installing the fix.
      PSConfig has to be run on all machines after installing the fix to complete the installation.
      That is required for all SharePoint fixes.


  2. Right, what I meant was after running PSConfig the first time time it still showed Upgrade required. So had to run it second time.


  3. After running PSConfig second time it still showed Upgrade required for some of the servers next day.
