Opinion: Quite a few applications will break under the new security-focused service pack. Many shouldn't have been written that way, and developers have had plenty of warning that things would change.
If you've ever wondered why major software releases such as new operating systems take so long, one of the biggest contributing factors is backward compatibility. Microsoft is especially sensitive to this, and especially with its largest customers. It works very hard not to break old applications.
But with Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), expected to be finalized in the next month, the standard has changed somewhat. The big point about XP SP2 is security, and toward that end, application compatibility must suffer. Some ISVs and other developers are mad. Others not only aren't mad, they see it as a good sign.
