How to detect if customer has applied hotfix? RRS feed

  • Question




    Our product requires a hotfix for a bug in ADO.NET (Article id: 913364, "Some notifications might not be received when an application subscribes to query notifications by using ADO.NET 2.0" http://support.microsoft.com/kb/913364/en-us#appliesto )


    I figured out how to detect if the user has installed this hotfix, but I'm not sure how our installer should deal with this in the future when the hotfix will no longer be required.


    Is this bug fix included (or will it be included) in any service pack releases for .NET 2.0? Is this information published anywhere?


    When will this bug be fixed in the the standard download for .NET 2.0 (so that customers will no longer have to apply the hotfix) ?



    Thanks very much,
