I've been trying to get this hotfix from Microsoft for about a week now.
In the Knowledge Base article
) it says to click a link
to submit an online request to obtain the hotfix, but I've done that
about three times over the last week and nothing has happened. I'm not
so sure that this link is actually working, because the form that is
displayed after clicking on the link does not mention the hotfix number
anywhere, there's no field to enter it, and the URL does not show the
hotfix number either.
I don't have a support contract and it's a pre-installed OEM version, so
I don't think that writing to MS support will help.
Is there another way to get this hotfix without waiting for Service Pack
1? (Found it for download on some web sites, but I'd rather get it
directly from Microsoft.
