Hello,

Does Microsoft release updates on a specific schedule? If they do could you provide the link on Microsofts website - thanks.

I am not sure if it is a written policy on the Microsoft site. But the understanding I have is that MS releases patches the first Tuesday of each month.

Not sure if this applies to all forms or patches. i.e. Office, Visio, etc... or software updates like Windows Media Player.

It is a policy of microsoft to release patches on the second tuesday of each month or as we all call it "Patch Tuesday". A patch will be released out of the schedule if it is deamed highly critical. If you are testing WSUS you may get all sorts of patches random as they are adding new things but when it goes live it will be on the second tuesday of each month.
