INTRODUCTION

List of issues that this hotfix package fixes

This hotfix package fixes the following issues that were not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
  • In Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, the journal does not work for Office documents that are saved to network locations. For example, you select the Microsoft Word check box in the Also record files from section in the Journal Options dialog box. Then, you open and edit a Word document from a network location. However, no journal entries are created in the Journal folder for this document.

    Note This issue does not occur in earlier versions of Outlook.
  • In Microsoft Office Word 2007, when you select a template category in the Microsoft Office Online section of the New Document dialog box, Word 2007 crashes.

    When you view the information in the error report, the report may contain an error signature that resembles the following error signature:

    Winword.exe 12.0.4518.1014 Mso.dll 12.0.6026.5000 00a7210c
  • 956724 When you try to reopen a 2007 Office file from a SharePoint site, you receive an error message that states that the file is locked or open in another program
  • 956725 On a domain controller that hosts an enterprise certification authority, 2007 Office applications display the revoked signatures as valid
  • 956951 Error message when you open a Word 2007 document that contains a damaged AutoShape object: "Word experienced an error trying to open the file"
  • The Microsoft "Save as PDF or XPS" add-in cannot process an end-user-defined character (EUDC). For example, you open a 2007 Office document that contains an EUDC, and then you save the document as a PDF by using the "Save as PDF or XPS" add-in. In this case, the EUDC is displayed as garbage in the 2007 Office document. When you open the PDF file by using Adobe Reader, the EUDC is displayed as a dot character.
  • After you use the code that is described in KB300688 to disable the Close button for Microsoft Office Access 2007, the button seems be disabled on Windows XP-based and Windows Server 2003-based computers. However, you can still click the button to close the application.

    Note This issue does not occur on a Windows Vista-based computer if the Windows Aero feature is enabled.
  • Consider the following scenario. You restrict permissions for a user on a 2007 Office file. The e-mail address of the user contains an apostrophe (') character. For example, the e-mail address may resemble the following e-mail address:
    ReubenD'sa@contoso.com
    In this scenario, you receive the following error message when you restrict permissions:
    Error: Email addresses must be in the form of 'someone@example.com'. The following e-mail address is not valid or could not be resolved: 'ReubenD'sa@contoso.com'. Verify that this is a valid e-mail address.

  • If the Ribbon controls use a GetEnabled callback or a GetVisible callback, and no workbook is open, the calls to the callbacks are not completed. Additionally, the callbacks are not called. However, each callback will be called on each additional click.
  • If you try to print a workbook from the print preview when the Add-Ins tab is active in Microsoft Office Excel 2007, the Add-Ins tab disappears.

    Note If you exit Excel 2007, and then you restart Excel 2007, the Add-Ins tab reappears. This issue also occurs in other 2007 Office applications that use the Ribbon UI.
