Update: Daylight Saving Time (DST) Changes for Microsoft CRM 3.0


Beginning in 2007, daylight saving time (DST) will be extended in the United States. DST will start on March 11, 2007, which is three weeks earlier than usual, and it will end on November 4, 2007, which is one week later than usual. This results in a new DST period that is four weeks longer than in previous years.  This will affect Microsoft CRM 3.0 and update is available.
 
 
1. General Microsoft environment (Windows Operating System, Office, SQL Server, Exchange, etc.) is updated to support DST change, check out the following link:
http://support.microsoft.com/gp/cp_dst or work with your IT partner.
 
2. For Microsoft CRM 3.0, download the following two updates: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Time Zone Data Updates (KB 925874) and Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Update Time Zones Wizard (KB 932984) from the following link:

  • Apply KB 932984, comes with one file – for applying on the Microsoft CRM Server, instructions are in the KB article – besure to run the "Microsoft.Crm.SE.TimeZoneSettings.exe"
