XP SP3 delayedYesterday Microsoft announced it is delaying the release of Windows XP Service Pack 3 due to a newly uncovered glitch.

Microsoft said there is a “compatibility issue” between the XP service pack and Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System, a retail chain management program for small and midsize businesses.

Microsoft has finalized the code for release for SP3 last week and had planned to make it available starting April 29th..

“In order to make sure customers have the best possible experience, we have decided to delay releasing Windows XP SP3 to Windows Update and Microsoft Download Center,” the company said in a statement.

The delay is expected to be a very short one; however it does add to the list of delays experienced as far back as 2006.
