If you have ever installed a service pack, you are likely aware of the fact that some programs and applications will no longer function after the installation. To make the transition to Windows XP’s service pack 2 go more smoothly, Microsoft publishes a list of programs and applications that may not function correctly after the installation. This list is continually updated and available to all users.

Before you upgrade to service pack 2 or if you have already upgraded only to find that some of your programs and applications no longer function correctly, check the list to see if there are any known issues. You can find the list of programs here.
