Windows XP SP3 delayed

Microsoft has decided to delay the release of Windows XP Service Pack 3, which was due out today.

Before SP3 can be released, Microsoft has to resolve a compatibility issue between Microsoft Dynamics RMS and both XP SP3 and Vista SP1, which has just come to light.

Microsoft Dynamics RMS is a retail-chain-management software, designed for SMBs.

Microsoft released Windows Vista SP1 last week via Automatic Updates.

The company now plans to put in filters to stop Windows Update from offering both service packs to systems running Microsoft Dynamics RMS.

Windows XP SP3 will only be released to Windows Update and Download Cente when the filters are in place.

Anyone running Microsoft Dynamics RMS has been advised not to install either service pack until the fix is in place.

Microsoft has not said how long this will take but customers can contact Microsoft Customer Support Services for advice.

Windows XP SP3 includes a number of useful security upgrades for enterprises, including improvements to black hole router detection and Network Access Protection.

It also combines previous bug fixes into one patch.
