Issues that this hotfix package fixes

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

• Consider the following scenario:

• On an Office SharePoint site, you set a document library’s document template type to Microsoft Office Word 97-2003 document (.doc).
• On a client computer that is running Office Word 2007, you create a new document from the document library.

In this case, when you try to save the document in Office Word 2007, the default document type that appears in the Save as type box of the Save As dialog box is Word Document (*.docx).

Additionally, if you do not notice that Word Document (*.docx) is wrong document type for the document library on the SharePoint site, and then click Save in the Save As dialog box, a dialog box states that states that you are saving the document in the wrong document type . If you click Cancel in this dialog box, you notice that the Save As dialog box reappears. However, the file name is changes to some random numbers together with .tmp file name extension. For example, the file name may appear as 6AF9E345.tmp.docx.

• In Office Word 2007, you add a XML schema to the schema library. Then, when you open or close a document that has the XML schema applied, you may notice that a memory leak occurs in Performance Monitor.
• In Office Word 2007, you insert an object that is from an Internet address. After that, when you try to change the source of the linked object to another Internet address, you receive the following error message:

You cannot use an Internet address here. Enter a path that points to a location on your computer or on the network.
• Office Word 2007 stops responding when you try to open WordPerfect 5.1 files.
• You embed a Word document object in a 2007 Microsoft Office file. However, you cannot save a copy of the Word document object to a network location in the Word 2007 format (.docx).
