An ADO-based application that is compiled in Windows 7 SP1 or in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 does not run in earlier versions of Windows.

Symptoms:
Assume that you develop an ActiveX Data Objects (ADO)-based data access application on a computer that is running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1). However, the application does not run on a computer that is running an earlier version of Windows.


Notes
  • ADO-based applications that are compiled in Windows 7 SP1 or in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 use the new interface identifiers (IIDs) in the ADO type libraries that were included in the SP1 packages for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • This issue does not occur if the hotfix that is described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article is installed on the computer that is running an earlier version of Windows: 983246 "Type Mismatch" error message when you run a VBA macro in a 64-bit version of an Office 2010 application.
More infos:
Update information

Assume that you compile a VB6-based or VBA-based application that is compatible with versions of Windows that are earlier than Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. After you install this update, Visual Basic automatically displays the Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 6.1 Library in the Available References list when you try to add references to the current project. To manually locate the ADO 6.0 type library (Msado60.tlb) in this situation, browse to the following location:
%program files%\common files\system\ado

Notes
  • Visual Basic automatically displays the ADO 6.0 type library in the Available References list if the reference to the ADO 6.0 type library was added to current project.
  • If you are a C++ developer and if you include the following line of code in the application, you must change the code when you recompile the application:
    Quote:
    #import msado15.dll
    You must change this code to the following:
    Quote:
    #import msado60.tlb
  • If you are a C++, VB6, or .NET developer and if you apply "Method 1" in the "Workaround" section that is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article 2517589, you do not have to change the code. However, we recommend that you install this update to make sure that the ADO interfaces on your computer are up to date. For more information about KB 2517589, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:2517589 (An ADO application does not run on down-level operating systems after you recompile it on a computer that is running Windows 7 SP 1 or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP 1 or that has KB983246 installed ) An ADO application does not run on down-level operating systems after you recompile it on a computer that is running Windows 7 SP 1 or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP 1 or that has KB983246 installed.

An update is available for the ASLR feature in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2.

Summary:
This update introduces the Force ASLR feature, which is an addition to the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) feature for Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. For more information about ASLR, visit the following Microsoft website:

General information about ASLR (Windows ISV Software Security Defenses)
Currently, ASLR is enabled only for executable images that are built by using a special linker flag. For more information about this special linker flag, visit the following Microsoft website:

General information about the /DYNAMICBASE linker flag (/DYNAMICBASE (Use address space layout randomization))
Executable images that do not specify this linker flag will generally load at their preferred base address.

This update provides support for the Force ASLR feature. This makes it possible for applications to forcibly relocate images that are not built with the /DYNAMICBASE linker flag. Applications can enable this feature by using new Image File Execution Options (IFEO). For more information about IFEO, visit the following Microsoft website:

General information about IFEO http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...(v=vs.85).aspx

Hotfix for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 on Windows 7 RTM & Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 & Service Pack 1!

-Article ID: 2637518 - Last Review: February 20, 2012 - Revision: 2.0
FIX: WCF services that are hosted by NLB computers to route messages to Exchange Server fail when WebHeader settings are added by using a .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 application.

Symptoms:


Consider the following scenario:
  • You use Network Load Balancing (NLB) to route messages for a set of computers that host Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) services.
  • The services use secure sessions by setting the authenticationMode attribute to SecureConversation to communicate with Microsoft Exchange Server.
  • You add WebHeader settings to messages in the application layer by using a Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 application. After you do this, NLB should use the WebHeader settings to route messages.
In this scenario, WebHeader settings are not added to messages that are used to negotiate the session. Therefore, messages are routed to different host computers. In this situation, any cached session data in the host computer is unavailable, and the WCF services fail.

This fix is available for download from the Microsoft Download Center (same link):

Morocco DST Update

Symptoms:
The government of Morocco has announced that the country will switch to daylight saving time (DST) every year from 2012 onwards. According to the new law, clocks in Morocco will be turned forward one hour on the last Sunday in April and turned back again on the last Sunday in September.

The legal time in Morocco will be advanced by 60 minutes on the last Sunday of April each year, at 2:00 A.M. Then, Morocco will return to standard time on the last Sunday of September each year at 3:00 A.M., with the exception of the holy month of Ramadan.

This year's switch from standard time to DST will occur in the early hours of April 29, 2012. Clocks will be turned from 2:00 A.M. (02:00) to 3:00 A.M. (03:00) local time. The end of the 2012 DST period occurs on September 30, when clocks will be turned back one hour from 3:00 A.M. (03:00) to 2:00 A.M. (02:00) local time.

No DST during Ramadan
According to the new law, the DST period will be interrupted during the Muslim month of Ramadan (July 20 to August 19, 2012 in the Gregorian calendar). For that period, clocks will be turned back to standard time. This interruption in the DST schedule is designed to shorten evenings, making it easier for Muslims to observe the Ramadan fast during hours of daylight.

You encounter a memory leak issue when an application calls the WinHttpGetProxyForUrl function in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
Assume that you develop an application that makes use of the WinHTTP Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Service (WinHttpAutoProxySvc) or calls the WinHttpGetProxyForUrl function. When you run this application on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, you encounter a memory leak issue.

Note The memory leak issue is in the WinHTTP Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Service (WinHttpAutoProxySvc) host process. The issue occurs when the WinHttpGetProxyForUrl function is called. Therefore, the memory usage of the process increases every time that the WinHttpGetProxyForUrl function is called.

Cause:
This issue occurs because the cleanup code is not executed in DLL_PROCESS_DETACH when the Jscript.dll file is dynamically unloaded.

To resolve this issue, install one of the following updates, depending on your operating system:

Update for Windows 7 x32-based system: Download: Update for Windows 7 (KB2703157) - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

Update for Windows 7 x64-based system: Download: Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2703157) - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

Note:
Some of you might not be able to install this update due to its particular setting and/or might be already included in kb2699988.
