    Default Windows 7 RC gets its first bug documented

    The first documented bug in the Windows 7 Release Candidate (build 7100).

    Yesterday, Microsoft published Knowledge Base article 970789, which provides details of a problem that affects the 32-bit (x86) English-language version of Windows 7 build 7100. The problem, in short, is that the installer incorrectly sets access control lists (ACLs) on the root of the system drive. The longer version is described as follows:

    A hotfix is available as an important update that should be delivered and installed automatically by Windows Update, assuming you have set up automatic updates.

    The hotfix package fixes the security descriptor of the root of the system drive, but it does not repair applications that are already installed, nor does it affect the permissions of folders that were created after the installation.

    If you installed the x64 version of Windows 7, you are apparently unaffected by this issue.

    If you haven’t yet installed the Windows 7 RC, it’s important to install this hotfix after you set up Windows and before you install any programs or restore any backed-up data.

    This sounds like a pretty serious bug in release candidate.
