The government of Egypt announced that, due to the observance of Ramadan,  it has changed the end of Daylight Savings Time to August 28, 2008 at midnight.   

Microsoft has created upon request, out of band release packages for Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 for the Egypt  DST update, Knowledge Base Article 953732, “A hotfix is available to update the " (GMT+02:00) Cairo” time zone for 2008 in Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.”  Click here to view and request hotfix downloads.

 

Please note that these packages are call-in/request only packages and will not be released to the Microsoft Download Center or via Microsoft Update Services.  This change will be included in the next DST Windows cumulative package released for all currently supported operating systems in December 2008 (Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista).
