A hotfix KB2543367 designed to introduce three new changes in Windows Daylight Saving Time support for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) is now released. According to the Redmond company, customers running Windows in the following countries: Chile, Egypt, and Morocco will be interested in deploying the hotfix.

The Windows Daylight Saving Time support modifications introduced are designed to reflect changes in the DST policies in each country.

Here're the changes that the hotfix introduces:

  • The government of Egypt has decided to cancel Daylight Saving Time. This hotfix updates Windows support for (UTC +2:00) Cairo so it'll no longer have DST support.
  • The government of Chile has extended the 2011 Daylight Saving Time so it ends May 7th. This hotfix updates Windows DST support for (UTC -4:00) Santiago so that DST ends May 7, 2011 at 23:59:59.999 and the clock reverts to 23:00:00.000.
  • The government of Morocco has changed the 2011 Daylight Saving Time schedule to end July 30th at midnight. This hotfix updates Windows DST support for (UTC) Casablanca so 2011 DST ends July 30, 2011 at 23:59:59.999 and the clock reverts to 23:00:00.000.
