RMS issues when Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) is installed

4/24/2008 8:56 AM PST The Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System (RMS) Development team has identified problems when Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) is installed.
Windows Vista (SP1) was released on 3/18/08 and may cause data loss and
corruption in Microsoft Dynamics RMS databases.


Windows Vista SP1 includes a change to the way Microsoft SQL Server handles database records that include information from more than one table.
For example, a supplier record in Microsoft Dynamics RMS includes information from both the Supplier and Item tables.

User Impact

All users who have applied Windows Vista SP1 will be affected.


The Microsoft Dynamics RMS Development team is collaborating with the Microsoft Data Programmability team to find a resolution for these problems.

Until a resolution is released, we strongly recommend that you do not install Windows Vista SP1. If you have already installed it, you can uninstall it.
