KB2919442 will not install on Windows Server 2012 R2 Built 9600

Have a Server 2012R2. A software application update says it needs KB2919442. Verified using Powershell that this update is not installed; but the 2 prerequisites for this update are installed. Running Windows Update says nothing new to install even with all additional items selected. Downloading KB2919442 specifically for Server2012R2 from Microsoft Downloads results in an install err that this KB is not applicable to my system. Have searched all over and can't find an answer. Help!

Given the update history you posted its almost assuredly superseded. The definitive check is to compare the file versions you have with what's listed here. If higher versions found then that would explain why the update no longer applies

What happens when you try? That one is pretty old. Assuming you probably get "not applicable" ? The definitive check is to compare the file versions you have with what's listed here. If higher versions found then that would explain the "not applicable"

Have tried searching from Microsoft Update on the server which resulted in nothing to install. Used the KB2919442 entry from the software and did extensive online search. Downloaded the listed update for Server2012R2 directly from Microsoft and received message that the update is not required for this platform. This appears to be a know issue and suggestion to make sure pre-reqs are installed by running powershell get-hotfix KB3173424,KB2919355,KB2919442 . The 2 pre-reqs listed show as installed both prior to 2016; but not KB2919442. All posts seem to be archived. I did review you link and had previously downloaded the correct KB2919442 file associated with Server2012R2.
