2007 time zone update for Microsoft Windows operating systems


Recommended Posts

If you haven't done so you will want to apply the correct update below in the next couple of weeks. There is an issue with daylight savings time being moved up three weeks this year.Starting in the spring of 2007, daylight saving time (DST) start and end dates for the United States will transition to comply with the Energy Policy Act of 2005. DST dates in the United States will start three weeks earlier (2:00 A.M. on the second Sunday in March) and will end one week later (2:00 A.M. on the first Sunday in November). The update that this article describes changes the time zone data to account for the United States DST change. This time zone update will also include changes for other related DST changes, time zone behavior, and settings. Some of these changes will occur in 2007, and some have occurred since these versions of Windows were originally released. The update that this article describes also includes some changes that have previously been released as individual hotfixes. An example of this is the Sri Lanka change in time zone offset. This update will also include some changes that have been individually documented in Microsoft Knowledge Base articles. These updated time zone definitions will also be included with Windows Vista.Download.gifDownload the Update for Windows Server 2003 package now.

For some reason this update was not part of the normal automatic updates... It should have been, but I guess the US are the only fools that decided to change the daylight savings time this year and some of the world doesn't even use it.
