SharePoint 2010 and March 2016 CU

The format how we are providing the Cumulative Update packages has changed with cy 2015, means you can find all packages on our Download Center.

When you reached the download website, it is independent which language you chose, the packages are the same.

Important: For this month we have full-server packages for SharePoint server and Project server. For SharePoint Foundation we have an individual fix available, but no full-server package. That means you may install the full-server package for Foundation from Feb 2016 and then this March package.
