2015 - Morocco Ramadan DST changes – end date hotfix

Summary:
As it did in 2014, Morocco is temporarily transitioning out of DST for the observation of Ramadan in 2015.

To do this, the DST period is suspended during the Muslim month of Ramadan (03:00 on Sunday, June 14, 2015 to 02:00 on Sunday July 19, 2015, in the Gregorian calendar).

During this period, clocks will be turned back to Standard Time. This suspension of the DST schedule is designed to shorten evenings, making it easier for Muslims to observe the Ramadan fast during hours of daylight. DST will resume at the end of the Ramadan observation on July 19, 2015.

We are releasing two hotfixes to automatically make these changes to the operating system for 2015.

Note Time zone history does not account for the Ramadan period that is set by these hotfix solutions.

More Infos:
To suspend the Windows DST adjustment for Morocco for 2015 install update 3062740 now (see also post #274 -Incorrect DST start settings for Morocco in 2015) .
That hotfix will revert the system clock to Standard Time.


To restore the DST adjustment on all systems, install hotfix 3062741 before June 28, 2015.

Note The announced time zone changes apply only to the 2015 calendar year. To return the system to the default DST settings for Morocco in 2016, you must install the December 2015 cumulative time zone update for Windows when that cumulative update is available.

The "Get Windows 10" app doesn’t appear in Windows 7 or 8.1

Symptoms:
If you have Windows 7 or 8.1, you may be expecting to see the Get Windows 10 app, a small Windows icon in your system tray. This app gives you the opportunity to get a free copy of Windows 10.

If you have Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 but aren’t seeing the icon, this article will help you find out why, and if you can get the app.

Cause:

Some possible causes are:
  1. If your device is or has been connected to a domain, or is managed by a system administrator, it may be blocked from the upgrade reservation. Check with your IT administrator.
  2. If your copy of Windows is not genuine, or if you have a Volume License copy (intended for businesses), the icon will not appear. To check this, open a Command Prompt (from the Start menu or screen, search for cmd, right-click on Command Prompt in the results and select Run as administrator), type slmgr /dli and then hit Enter. A window will appear with the channel in the Description line (Retail, OEM, or Volume), and the License Status. If your copy of Windows is not activated, refer to Knowledge Base article 950929 for more information. If you have a Volume License copy, it does not qualify for the free upgrade.
If neither of these causes are the case with your copy of Windows, try the Resolution steps below.

Resolution:Try the following troubleshooting steps:

Minimum service pack levels for Microsoft VC++ Redistributable Packages.

Summary:
The Microsoft Download Center pages for Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages do not consistently show the specific minimum service pack levels that are required for the target operating systems. This article indicates the minimum service pack level for these Redistributable Packages.

More Infos:
The following lists indicate the supported operating systems and service packs levels for each Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package. Each list also includes a link to the Microsoft Download Center page for that package. Because some Redistributable Packages were tested and published before newer Windows versions, newer Windows versions may not be listed in the "Supported platforms" section on the download page. When a new Windows version is released, testing is done to ensure that the compatibility between the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package and Windows is maintained.

The support lifecycle for the VC++ redistributables is tied to the lifecycles of both the corresponding Visual Studio version and the Windows platform on which it is used.
