April 29, 2008 (Computerworld) Microsoft Corp. on Tuesday postponed the expected release of Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) after it found a compatibility bug between the operating system and retail management software it sells.

Last week, Microsoft said the service pack would be available for download from Windows Update (WU) and as a standalone installer from the company's Web site on April 29.

"In the last few days, we have uncovered a compatibility issue between Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System (RMS) and both Windows XP SP3 and Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1)," said Chris Keroack, XP SP3's release manager, in a message posted to the TechNet support forum around noon Tuesday. "In order to make sure customers have the best possible experience, we have decided to delay releasing Windows XP Service Pack 3."

There was no word on when the company would add XP SP3 to WU and post the standalone installer. Microsoft intends to place a blocking filter on Windows Update to hide SP3 from machines running Dynamics RMS; when that's deployed, the company will resume its XP3 release schedule, said Keroack.
