Exchange 2016 CU17 Shows Incorrect Name In Add/Remove Programs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Support,

    Our Current Exchange Server 2016 (CU3) was running and last week upgraded to Latest CU17

    Issue we have noticed below:

    After installing Exchange 2016 CU17,we have notice that there is a cosmetic issue with how the update is listed in Add/Remove programs. In the screenshot below, note that Exchange 2016 Cumulative Update 3 is listed, but the version number is not the CU17 version number.

    For reference the versions of the relevant CUs are shown below.  Note that the above screenshot shows the CU17 version, but the text string shows CU3.

    Exchange 2016 CU3 is 15.01.0544.027
    Exchange 2016 CU17 is  15.01.2044.004
    as the version information shown in Exchange Management Shell is correct.  On the Exchange server, we can check the version information using something like:

    Note that PowerShell shows the correct version information for CU17 – 15.01.2044.004

    This issue is discussed in KB XXX “Cumulative Update 3” appears in Programs and Features after you install Exchange Server 2016 Cumulative Update 17.

    Also in our vulnerability tools show CU3 in Outdated version,

    Please advise

  • Hi,

    Did you get any error when updating your server?

    It seems a similar issue with this KB discussing, please check the registry "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Microsoft Exchange v15" and see if the display name has been updated.

    Actually this Exchange Server Development forum is NOT for asking such questions, the previous TechNet Exchange forum has been migrated to Q&A forum, you can post your issues there for better support.
