Microsoft loses a court case; software supporters suffer.
With Microsoft losing a law suit over technology used by its Internet Explorer Web browser, other software companies are having to issue patches. (Is their programming time compensated by Microsoft?)
PTC notes that This issue affects all releases of Windchill and Windchill-based solutions, including Windchill PDMLink, Windchill ProjectLink, Windchill Foundation & PDM, Windchill DynamicDesignLink, and Pro/INTRALINK 8.0 and higher; ProductView clients may also be affected. Some of the problems include:
- Loading the Java plug-in from an updated Microsoft browser may cause it to exit prematurely.
- Launching ProductView Standard Edition plug-in from an updated browser may cause it to become unresponsive.
