Technology giant Microsoft came up with the January 2020 non-security Microsoft Office updates that accompany crash and memory leak solutions, in addition to performance and steadiness improvements for Windows Installer (MSI) editions of Office 2016.
For example, 2020’s first series of Microsoft Office non-security updates rectify a problem where Microsoft Visio would crash when opening .vsdx files from Microsoft SharePoint, OneDrive, or a web location if the resource’s URL contains an ampersand (&) character.
Once the Visio 2016 KB4484170 update is installed, any URL again without the app crashing unpredictably can be updated.
This month’s updates also fix a memory leak problem impacting Outlook 2016 when toast notifications are allowed with the KB4484212 update.
The updates issued today by the software giant can be downloaded via the Microsoft Update service or from the Download Center for manual installation.
None of the Microsoft Office updates delivered today apply to Office subscription or Office 2016 Click-to-Run editions such as Microsoft Office 365 Home.
Relying on the update, you might also have to connect another update for the problem to be fully addressed or the development to be allowed on your Windows device, as is the case of the KB4484168 update that needs KB4484216 to also be connected.
