Microsoft Updates Lync for Mac 2011 KB3037358

Corporate Mac users just got an update for Lync for Mac 2011 with KB3037358, updating it to Version 14.0.11 (150304). According to the KB article, the update includes many updates and bug fixes, including those listed below:

KB 3037357 Lync for Mac 2011 cannot use the .PAC file appropriately
KB 3037356 The “Calendar” button and the “Schedule a Meeting…” menu item are unavailable in Lync for Mac 2011
KB 3037354 Cannot receive an audio warning for an incoming call or IM when you set presence status to “Busy” in Lync for Mac 2011
KB 3037352 Cannot dial a DTMF-based number when you use a Polycom CX300 telephone that is connected to Lync for Mac 2011
KB 3037351 Audio status icon is slow to update in a conference roster in Lync for Mac 2011
KB 3037350 The “DisableSavingIM” client policy does not work in Lync for Mac 2011

Although the update hit Microsoft’s download site yesterday, 3/17, the AutoUpdate tool Mac isn’t picking it up, so you will need to manually download and run the update using the following link — Lync for Mac 2011 – March Update KB3037358.

Although the list of “published” bug fixes and enhancements is fairly short, you can be sure this update is packed full, so you will want to grab it and upgrade quickly. Hopefully, it will add some stability to the client while we wait for Microsoft to release Skype for Business on the Mac platform.

    Thanks for sharing the tip about the latest client not coming down through the AutoUpdate. Upon reading your article, I confirmed that the case was the same for several of my users and here we are in April. Any news or thoughts on why that isn’t coming down through AutoUpdate? Definitely disconcerting.

    Thanks a lot!!

    After days of struggling with my Lync Office 2011 being disconnected by the server, and no update being detected as relevant by Office update, I actuallly had a last attempt according to this page and downloaded the latest Lync update from
    (Make sure you select your actual language first!)

    This finally resolved my issue and Lync is now working! :)
