The list gets larger, but no closer to a fix. RRS feed

  • http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946676 was updated as of 2/21 I see to include a lot more of the applications that we've all been saying are susceptible to corruption issues.  Clearly this is not an application-centric problem.  I expect at least a few more months of waiting for the fix.

    Please note also the part stating the issue occurs when the server being stressed is no longer there.

     

    Concerning the time it takes I guess you're probably right. Probably they have to rewrite the whole thing from te ground up. Personally I prefer a proper fix even if it takes half a year over a half-baked fix in a few weeks.

    Good catch, I did not notice that part.

  • Just for the heck of it, I called HP today to see if they could/would give an estimate on when the fix might appear. The tech I spoke with said they were just informed that MS has said that April 1 (an appropriate day) is their new target date.
