I have donwloaded it, and would love to try it... BUT of course if one
has this installer problem, one MUST call M$ to get the hotfix!!! HOW
stupid is that???
Do any of you use apple products? do you know how unbeilivably
aggravating M$ is regarding support? Why oh why must I run the
installer only to have the dreaded installer problem (I had ev1.0
installed) to find a link to their website, visit the site to read a
page-and-a-half that says absolutely nothing useful about the problem,
or how to solve it!
But at least SW provides telephone numbers to call in several countries
to get the fix direct from friendly M$ employees. How nice, telephone
support is closed for the day here... so now I have to wait 'til
morning and probably longer on hold! What are they going to do? tell me
the magic incantation or dance to do, or will the tell me the weblink
to download the patch... which they could have done in the FIRST place
saving me time and them time.... grrrrrr.
take pill... breath deep... use a mac. Ahhh. :-))
I'm telling you, SW on OSX would be killer.
PS- as I understand it, this M$ bug affects only people who have
installed 2 SW SPs already - if you have installed only one, then you
probably are good to go.

Yes - I've just installed it without a hitch - however using win 2000
Seems to be no major hitch yet except the upgrade did not bring back
my Task Panel and Design Library. !!! that went walk about today.
Should you down load it ? - Well we each have to walk our own path
on this world !! Do you feel lucky ;-)
I'm up & running on XP SP2 with SW2005 SP1.1. I am pleased that one
particular issue was fixed - that of the user defined part number containing
a leading space in conjunction with an Excel based BOM. I tried it before
and after updating - fixed!
