FAQ concerning WSS 3.0 and MOSS SP2 and the April 2009 Cumulative Updates

Many of our customers have questions on the relationship between the set of hotfixes released in the Cumulative Updates (CU) for April 2009 and Service Pack 2 (SP2) for the 2007 Microsoft Office System and Microsoft Office servers. This post from the Office Sustained Engineering Team will aim at answering those questions.


  1. Has a hotfix been released for this problem concerning mistaken activation of Trial License for WSS 3.0 SP2. I cannot edit the "Product Key" field in Central Administration – Operations – Convert License page. This field appears blank. So the workaround as described in KB971620 is not working for me. Time Running out.


  2. The hotfix is still in the works.
