Description

This update provides new APIs for conversion between local time and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2.

The new APIs improve the accuracy of the conversion between local time and UTC when daylight saving time (DST) adjustments are applied.

When you run an application that requires date interpretation and that uses the new APIs on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, the following issues may occur:

  • Applications or web pages crash.
  • You cannot log on to web-based applications.
  • When you schedule a meeting by using a calendar application, and the recipient of the calendar item is located in a different time zone, the calendar item does not display the correct meeting time.
  • JavaScript-based stock ticker applications or JavaScript-based chart applications do not work as expected.
  • This update should be installed to resolve this issue with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
