• KB 3102429: Yes, Microsoft did just re-release the update supporting Azerbaijani and Georgian currency symbols

    If you’re trying to figure out why KB 3102429 suddenly re-appeared overnight, I don’t have the slightest idea, either. What I do know for sure is that the bits came out through Windows Update yesterday, that the original release was on November 17, 2015, and that the KB article is now up to version 7.

    Which makes absolutely no sense to me. If you get it, drop me a comment.

    After you apply this update, the Azerbaijani Manat and the Georgian Lari currency symbols can be input by using the physical keyboard, Windows on-screen keyboard (osk.exe), or Tablet PC Input Panel (Tabtip.exe) in Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows RT, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1), and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. Additionally, these currency symbols are added on the Currency tab of the Region settings in Control Panel.

    We have defined the new keyboard shortcuts for Azerbaijani Manat and Georgian Lari. See the keyboard shortcuts in this article.

    UPDATE: Susan Bradley has the answer, as usual. It seems that the original version of this patch was clobbering Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2008. Presumably the update will leave Crystal Reports alone.
