Windows 7 SP1 RTM Can Break Some Programs

Quote:

While installing Service Pack 1 RTM on top of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 should be a walk in the park for the vast majority of users, there will also be those that are bound to come across some issues.

According to Microsoft, the deployment of SP1 RTM can negatively impact a select list of programs if they’re already installed in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

The Redmond company has published KB2492938 detailing the problems that customers can come across.

The software giant provided examples of programs that will not run after installing Service Pack 1 RTM, including IncrediMail Xe 2.0 from IncrediMail Ltd., Lenovo System Update from Lenovo, and Ninja Trader 7.0; 6.5 from Ninja Trader.

Unfotunately that's the nature of updates - sometimes programs get broken. I'm sure this is something Microsoft tried to avoid but with all the PC configurations out there with their various software packages some are bound to get broke

Hopefully it won't be too bad and Microsoft will have/issue quick fixes/workarounds.

Incredimail has left a long lasting very bad taste for any PC imo.
Which is why I did say, imo on my previous post.

It used to be the leading cause of problems/malware issues on all PC's it was installed on.

It was then considered garbage, and I am sure that anyone who remembers, still does.

I don't use any of the specified programs, but I suspect that like roaches, if you see one, there is at least a hundred more in the woodwork.

I guess they were bored after doing such a good job with the initial release. Let's go ahead and break everything with the first service pack, the old bait & switch.
