Visual Studio servicing information

Check out the Visual Studio servicing information that we recently posted.  Servicing — including service packs and other product updates — is an important part of our product development work.  I hope this addresses questions that customers have related to our servicing model and plans.  If it doesn’t, let us know and we will refine it!

    How are bugs in the runtimes (mfc or atl for instance) going to be serviced.  Now runtimes go into the WinSxs directory so that Microsoft can service them.

    There is a specific bug (FDBK40119  <;) that is a problem in iostream.  I’m not sure how it has been fixed but it seems possible that it requires new mfc dlls (vs compiler magic).
