How do I find the latest Released Cumulative Updates (Hotfixes) for Microsoft Dynamics NAV?

If you’ve ever gone looking for the latest cumulative updates for NAV on Microsoft CustomerSource (or PartnerSource), but don’t know which one it is, you’ll probably agree with me that it can be a time consuming task.

Cumulative UpdateWell, there is good news! Microsoft has “fast publish” articles that maintain a list of released Cumulative Updates for each of the following versions: NAV 2013, 2013 R2, and 2015. The Cumulative Updates are typically released at a monthly frequency.

You may see a “Referring link not Secure” message since we are an external source linking to a Microsoft KB article. Click on Continue to proceed to the article. You may need to sign in with your Microsoft CustomerSource / PartnerSource login.

If you are using NAV 2015, the Platform update / hotfix directories (NST, RTC, etc.) are no longer available “out-of-the-box.” A few additional steps need to be taken to get those individual subfolders so you can patch the files on the NAV server and existing NAV client workstations. Instructions for this can be found here:

LetsTalkNAV.com will also be posting a how-to video to walk you through the steps of getting back these directories. We will update this article with a link to the walkthrough once it is posted.
