Microsoft has discontinued downloading of Vista SP1 via Automatic Update and delayed the release of XP SP3 through Automatic Update to as well. Want the reason? Well, today they uncovered a compatibility issue between Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System (RMS) and both Windows XP SP3 and Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1). The same compatibility issue was found in XP SP3 before the general distribution, but it wasn’t in Vista SP1. Microsoft released Vista SP1 to manufacturing on February 4.
Due to the newly encountered incompatibility issues with the Service Packs, Microsoft is forced to halt the release. Their release was planned before the end of August, but this is not the case anymore and Microsoft fails to announce the exact date.
This blog has gone quite far and this is all due to support and contribution from my readers. Thank you all for reading and visiting my blog. Now it’s time to treat my readers with something that they will really like. Therefore, as a reward, I’ll be giving away a free domain to one lucky reader.
This is the first freebie I’m sponsoring, so for now I’m only giving out one domain. Next time, there’ll be more! :D
Ever felt the need to backup only your settings? Well, I sure did a few days ago. Due to a bad script running in one of the sites I had opened, my Firefox crashed! That was the first time Firefox actually crashed for me. I have explained before how to can backup your entire Firefox profile or how to do it regularly. But if you only want your settings to be backed up, then read on.
It feels so good back to blogging! A day earlier than what I said, but I think it’s fine. Well, to start of with things, I missed out the most anticipated release of WordPress 2.5 and I’m still on the same, crappy old WordPress 2.2. I’ll upgrade in few days.
I just saw in my Dashboard that a newer version of WordPress had just released (10 min. ago), WordPress 2.5.1. It’s a security fix to the previous version.
