List of issues fixed

This hotfix fixes the following issues:

950774 (/Feedback.aspx?kbNumber=950774/) Error message when you use Group Policy to add different versions of an add-in as Office Outlook 2007 trusted add-ins: The name you entered has already been used You need to enter a unique name
950775 (/Feedback.aspx?kbNumber=950775/) In the Arabic version of Outlook 2007, the folder tree pane is incorrectly shown on the left side

This hotfix fixes the following issues that are not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

• You configure Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 to potentially use HTTP as a connection protocol. If you access data from a public folder or from other user’s mailbox, you may be prompted unexpectedly to enter your credentials. This problem occurs even if you currently do not use HTTP as the connection protocol.

• You create a recurring meeting based on a custom form in Office Outlook 2007. When you open the meeting, you see the default form page instead of the custom form page.

Note When you open the meeting series, you can see the custom form page.

• When you invite another user to a meeting in Office Outlook 2007, Outlook may stop responding.

• Consider the following scenario. You create a daily recurring meeting request that does not have a reminder set in Office Outlook 2003. You try to send the meeting request to an Office Outlook 2007 recipient. In this scenario, you may receive the following error message:


The reminder for an occurrence cannot be set to appear before the previous occurrence. Shorten the reminder time or lengthen the recurrence period

If the recipient tries to accept the meeting request, the recipient may also receive this error message.

• You may lose some RSS feeds after you restart Office Outlook 2007 in online mode.

• When you create a new profile in Office Outlook 2007, the creation wizard disappears before the profile is created. If you try to create a new message, you receive the following error message:

A dialog box is open. Close it and try again.

Additionally, you cannot close Outlook and you have to manually end the Outlook.exe process using Task Manager. Outlook stops responding, and the crash signature details are:
Application Name: outlook.exe
Application Version: 12.0.6300.5000
Module Name: WWLIB.DLL
Module Version: 12.0.6212.1000
Offset: 00144926
