Today we have released an update rollup that includes all application and platform hotfixes that have been released for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013. The update rollup includes hotfixes that apply to all countries and select local versions.

Going forward, we will release monthly update rollups instead of individual hotfixes.

What is an update rollup

An update rollup is a cumulative set of files that includes all hotfixes (application and platform) and regulatory features that have been released for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013, including hotfixes and regulatory features released in previous update rollups.

Where to find the update rollups

You can download the first update rollup from KB 2829782 - Update Rollup 1 for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 (Build 34587). The hotfixes that are included in this update rollup are listed in the KB article.

You can find a list of all update rollups released for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 in KB 2842257 - Released update rollups for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013.

  • Why does the RU5 for the DE version includes newer W1 objects than the RU5 for the W1 version?

    e.g. table 950, Time Sheet Header:

    W1: 05.04.13, NAVW17.00.00.34587

    DE: 03.06.13, NAVW17.00.00.34902

  • Hi Sven, a local version can have newer versions of W1 objects if changes for specific local functionality have been made to the object. For example, the changes made to table 950 in update rollup 5 are changes to DEU option captions.

  • Have any of you succeeded to actually find the link to the download (as they state on this page)?

  • @Søren: Microsoft changed the partner/customer source style sheets apparently. You can find the link using view page source. I already left a remark at the page that the update destroyed the links.

  • Hi Søren,

    As Sebastiaan said, a change was made to the KB article layout on PartnerSource and CustomerSource this past weekend. Unfortunately, this caused the Download link at the top of the KB articles to disappear. This problem has now been fixed and the Download link is visible again.

    I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you and other customers and partners.

    /Susanne
