As of March 11th 2007 extended Daylight savings times go into effect in the US. Systems that are affected that have Microsoft updates available are:

  • Windows XP SP2 (service pack 2)

  • Windows Server 2003

  • Windows Server 2003 SP 1

  • Windows 2000 (under extended Hot fix support)

To verify your operating system, right click on My Computer and go to properties. Your operating system is under the General tab, System.

Make sure your Windows Update is working.

  1. Click on Start>settings>control Panel> Automatic Updates>

  2. Click on Install Updates from the Windows Website and follow the prompts.

All Retail Pro Versions are affected by this change in law. Versions 6-8 Use the windows system time and date for all time stamps, so if your windows time is wrong, so will Retail Pro be wrong. As long as your Windows is up to date and the time and date are correct Retail Pro will be correct.

If you are on the above operating systems and windows update automatically is on, you should be automatically updated with the fix with the exception of Windows 2000.

If your company uses Microsoft Exchange servers and Outlook you will probably need to get your IT professional working to get all the updates and fixes need.
