    We have tested these patches in our Application Compatibility Lab using our product AOK
    This is a really big update from an application compatibility perspective. There are c. 200 DLL's that have been updated and most apps are affected based on our sample of 800 applications. Recent patches have included far fewer DLL updates and so are easier to test - once you know what the specifc DLL is doing. However with this release the c. 200 DLL's are widely distributed acorss applications.

    You may not be running Exchange or IE7, but I bet you are using SQL Server. Therefore, you may be interested in the Security Update MS09-004 (Vulnerability in Microsoft SQL Server Could Allow Remote Code Execution).

    It is probably the most complex update released this month.

    This update alone changes the following files; Atl71.dll, Atxcore.dll, Atxcore.rll, Axscphst.dll, Axscphst.rll, Bcp.exe, Bcp.rll, Cldtcstp.exe, Cldtcstp.rll, Cmdwrap.exe, Cnfgsvr.exe, Cnvrem.dll, Cnvsvc.exe, Comnevnt.dll, Custtask.dll, Custtask.rll, Dbghelp.dll, Dbmslpcn.dll, Dbmslpcn.dll, Dbmsshrn.dll, Dbmsshrn.dll, Dbnetlib.dll, Dcomscm.exe, Distrib.exe, Dtcsetup.exe, Dtsffile.dll, Dtsffile.rll, Dtspkg.dll, Dtspkg.rll, Dtspump.dll, Dtspump.rll, Dtsrun.exe, Dtsrun.rll, Impprov.dll, Mergetxt.dll, Msdbi.dll, Msgprox.dll, Msvcp71.dll, Msvcr71.dll, Msxmlsql.dll, Msxmlsql.rll, Odbcbcp.dll, Odsole70.dll, Odsole70.rll, Opends60.dll, Osql.exe, Pfclnt80.dll, Pfclnt80.rll, Rdistcom.dll,Replagnt.dll, Repldist.dll, Repldp.dll, Repldsui.dll, Repldts.dll, Replerrx.dll, Replmerg.exe, Replprov.dll, Replprox.dll, Replrec.dll, Replres.rll, Replsub.dll, Replsync.dll, Rinitcom.dll, Scm.exe, Semmap.dll, Semmap.dll, Semmap.rll, Semmap.rll, Semnt.dll, Semnt.dll, Semnt.rll, Semnt.rll, Snapshot.exe, Spresolv.dll, Sqdedev.dll, Sqladevn.rll, Sqladhlp.exe, Sqlagent.dll, Sqlagent.exe, Sqlagent.rll, Sqlatxss.dll, Sqlatxss.rll, Sqlboot.dll, Sqlcmdss.dll, Sqlcmdss.rll, Sqlctr80.dll, Sqldata.dll, Sqldistx.dll, Sqldmo.dll, Sqldmo.rll, Sqlevn70.rll, Sqlimage.dll, Sqlinitx.dll, Sqlmaint.exe, Sqlmangr.exe, Sqlmangr.rll, Sqlmergx.dll, Sqlredis.exe, Sqlrepss.dll, Sqlrepss.rll, Sqlresld.dll, Sqlresld.dll, Sqlresld.dll, Sqlservr.exe, Sqlsnmp.dll, Sqlsort.dll, Sqlsrv32.dll, Sqlsrv32.rll, Sqlstbss.exe, Sqlstbss.rll, Sqlsvc.dll, Sqlsvc.dll, Sqlsvc.rll, Sqlsvc.rll, Sqlunirl.dll, Sqlvdi.dll, Ssmsad70.dll, Ssmslpcn.dll, Ssmsrp70.dll, Ssmssh70.dll, Ssmsvi70.dll, Ssnetlib.dll, Ssnmpn70.dll, Ssradd.dll, Ssravg.dll, Ssrdown.dll, Ssrmax.dll, Ssrmin.dll, Ssrpub.dll, Ssrup.dll, Svrnetcn.dll, Svrnetcn.exe, Svrnetcn.rll, Ums.dll, W95scm.dll, Xplog70.dll, Xplog70.rll, Xpqueue.dll, Xprepl.dll, Xpsqlbot.dll, Xpstar.dll, Xpstar.rll.

    If you are interested in the March patch updates the news is better from an application compatibility perspective. This month includes 3 patches, one rated Critical and the other rated as Important. These patches affect all operating systems from Windows 2000, XP through to VISTA and Windows 7 beta and will require all servers and desktops running these operating systems to be rebooted. The good news is that from an application compatibility perspective this is a minor update from Microsoft unlike Feb
