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:

  1. 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)
  2. Download the standalone Windows Server 2012 R2 Update MSU files
    Windows Server 2012 R2 Update (KB2919355)
  3. Install the MSU files in the following order and restart
  • KB2919355
  • KB2932046
  • KB2937592
  • KB2938439
  • KB2934018

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.
