The download for February 2020 CU is available through the following link:

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 2019 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.

Please ensure to have a look at the SharePoint Patching Best Practices before applying new fixes.

  1. Hello Stefan.

    Thank you for your posts!

    One question: are these two ways the same?

    Install the language independent patch –> then run the SharePoint 2019 Products Configuration Wizard –> then install the language dependent patch –> then run the SharePoint 2019 Products Configuration Wizard

    or

    Install the language independent patch –> then install the language dependent patch –> then run the SharePoint 2019 Products Configuration Wizard

    Thank you.
    Best.
    Alessandro

    1. Yes – there is no need to run the configuration wizard multiple times. One single run after the last patch is sufficient.
