Daylight Savings Changes in 2008
Daylight Savings Time (DST) now ends on the first Sunday of April and starts on the first Sunday of October. Microsoft has a series of updates, articles and tools to help with the new dates.
Microsoft has not published an automatic update, but we have developed a manual registry patch to make the appropriate changes:
Contact us if you need help with these systems. There is no Microsoft patch.
If, before installing the Windows DST update, you created an appointment/task etc that falls between the old and new start/end dates, Outlook will present the time incorrectly. Since Windows was updated in late 2007, this may affect you only if you make appointments months in advance. Microsoft has a tool which updates such items, but use with care.

If you have Lotus Notes add-ins for Exchange, Sharepoint, Dynamics CRM, Biztalk Server, Commerce Server, Visual Studio and some other Microsoft products, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-au/bb887637.aspx.
Cadzow 2000 is sensitive to the accuracy of the PC clock in a networked environment, so if you have some systems which have changed DST properly and some not, you'll get a warning message.
Although many applications simply use the date and time in the underlying operating system, some have their own time zone logic. Check their websites for information.
