Microsoft released a new update for Outlook 2010. In a previous update, security patches caused the personal information manager and e-mail client to crash.

The software giant announced earlier this week that the 64-bit version of security update KB 4461529 caused the crash of Outlook 2010. Nevertheless, Microsoft advised users not to delete the update at that time, but to use Outlook Web Access. This is in order to prevent possible misuse of four errors that have crept in. The now released security patch KB 4461585 solves the problem.

Microsoft informs that the update can be downloaded from the Microsoft download center and not from the Microsoft Update Catalog. It would also only be suitable for the Microsoft Installer (MSI) based edition of Office 2010 and not for the Click-to-Run editions of Office 2010, such as Microsoft Office 365 Home. The software giant therefore advises users to first check which edition is involved.

No updates are available yet for the non-security updates KB 4461522 and KB 2863821 of Outlook 2010, which Microsoft withdrew on November 15. These include crashes in Access and other apps. Microsoft advises users to remove the updates.
