2008 Cumulative Time Zone Update for Windows now available


Hello Folks,


We wanted to bring to your attention that the 2008 Cumulative Time Zone Update for Windows has been released to the Microsoft Download Center (DLC) for currently supported Windows OS versions (including Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Vista).


This update can be found in KB article 942763 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942763)


As noted previously, the annual 2008 Cumulative Time Zone Update for Windows sets the known, correct dates for 2008 (including 2008 changes for Australia, Brazil and other countries we know that have changed their observance of DST entry/exit dates or time zones in 2008). This early drop of the update allows IT professionals and sysadmins to test the installation and deployment of the cumulative update roll-ups prior to broad distribution.  The update packages will be distributed to computers via Windows Update in early December (the second Tuesday, Dec 11).


Guidance for consumers and unmanaged customers: Generally, consumers should allow for the updates to be installed on their computers via Windows Update rather than download and install these updates from the DLC. 


Thanks.

    Hi Hank,

    You do not need the update unless you do business or have contacts in those regions being updated, however our recommendation is to always stay updated no matter what 🙂

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    plan is to create a smpd extension dll exporting  

    microsoft.updateservices.administration.updateserverstatus_properties

    via windows snmpd for use in central monitoring software.

    I already got the smnp extension dll ready, and it even works, but  currently I’m unable to figure out how to use the wsus c++ api.

    Therefore I would be very glad if you could help out and provide code howto retrieve updateserverstatus in c++.

    It is very easy and well documented for powershell and vb, but c++ is nearly undocumented.

    MfG

    Markus

    If all my users and computers are in the US (EDT/EST), do I need this update? We do not interact with anyone outside the US.

    TIA,

    On 12 december my Windows Update downloaded automatically a new patch (KB 946058) for Windows Liver Writer and so LiveWriter has been updated to version 12.0.1367.1128.

    But today 14 december, Windows Update shows me an optional update for LiveWriter with pubblished date 5 november 2007 (5/11/2007). I think there’s a bug in Windows Update.

    You need to make an update for Tbilisi, Georgia time zone. The time was changed in 2005 to GMT +0400 and has not changed since, but you still have GMT +0300. I live in Tbilisi and really need this update!
