Issues With Internet Explorer

Issue #1 : You cannot uninstall Internet Explorer 7 or Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1 after you install Windows XP Service Pack 3

Impact : Low – in the case of Internet Explorer 8 Beta, a Windows Update detection script will be in place. It will not offer SP3 to IE8 beta users.

KB Content : KB950719

 

Issue #2 : After you upgrade to Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3), when you double-click the Internet Explorer 7 icon on your desktop, Internet Explorer does not open and a new shortcut is created. If you click more times on the Internet Explorer icon, more Internet Explorer shortcuts are created. If you click the Internet Explorer shortcuts that are created, nothing occurs.

Impact : Low – this only impacts users which perform an upgrade to SP3 using a Full Product CD (integrated).

Apple Computers

This issue affects Windows XP Home Edition and Windows XP Professional operating systems running through Apple Boot Camp.

If you attempt to install this release candidate on an Intel-based Apple computer (Mac Pro, Mac Mini, MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, or iMac) that is running Windows XP SP2 through Boot Camp, installation may fail with the error "Out of disk space".

Impact : Low – minimal number of install base and can be easily resolved via registry modification

KB Content : Included in release notes

 

Third Party Wireless Networking Drivers

Windows XP SP3 introduces a new .dll file that is named Wlanapi.dll. Certain device driver installations for some third-party wireless network adapters also install a Wlanapi.dll which will be replaced by SP3 resulting in errors.

This error message will appear during every restart after you install Windows XP Service Pack 3 : "The procedure entry point apsSearchInterface could not be located in the dynamic link library wlanapi.dll"

Impact : Low – Obtaining updated drivers for the WLAN device resolves this issue
