How to Install the Windows Server 2012 R2 Update
The standalone Windows Server 2012 R2 Update comprises of 5 MSU package files that must be installed individually and in a specific order. Also, before attempting to install these MSU files a prerequisite update must be installed beforehand.
To install the Windows Server 2012 R2 Update manually (i.e. not using Windows Update or WSUS), follow the steps below:
- Check if the KB2919442 prerequisite update is already installed? If not download and install it from the following link:
Update for Windows Server 2012 R2 (KB2919442)
- Download the standalone Windows Server 2012 R2 Update MSU files
Windows Server 2012 R2 Update (KB2919355)
- Install the MSU files in the following order and restart
I’ve downloaded the files into a single folder and renamed them accordingly so I don’t install them incorrectly:
Note- After each update has completed installing it will prompt to restart, it’s safe to cancel these and restart only after all updates have installed.
