2007 time zone update for Microsoft Windows operating systems

 

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.

Thanks Neil for all those links regarding the new 2007 time change. I was just thinking about that the other day and now I don't have to go looking for the update.

 

Hope you had a great "Turkey Day". I did, and I'm still full---LOL

I would think that MS would include this in a normal "Patch Tuesday" update.

 

This is what I got when I clicked on the XP 32bit link:

Here is the updated links to this

 

Update for Windows XP (KB931836)

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/info.as...isplayLang%3den

 

Installing this update enables your computer to automatically adjust the computer clock on the correct date in 2007 due to revised Daylight Saving Time laws in many countries.

 

 

It's not available on WSUS (yet).
