SharePoint 2013 April Update Unable to Install on Service Pack 1 Issue

| No Comments

If you like being up on the latest Cumulative Update for SharePoint 2013, you may have run into this already as you were trying to do the installation in your development environment. The basis for these issues started back when Service Pack 1 was released (build 15.0.4569.1506) and then pulled because of issues. It was later replaced with build 15.0.4571.1502. Additionally, if you had to install on Windows Server 2012 R2 you had to use the slipstream version of SharePoint 2013 SP1 which had the same build number (15.0.4569.1506) as the troubled SP1 but really was the “good” version. You following so far?

So far this worked great until April 2015. It was discovered that only the downloaded “good” version of Service Pack 1 will work with April 2015. A temporary workaround has been found by Stefan Goßner for the issue prior to Microsoft fixing it (learn about the workaround). You can download and apply the “clean” version of Service Pack 1. Otherwise you may have to open a ticket with Microsoft if this does not work.
