1.4.3p1 Available – Important patch for Windows XP 32-bit

Filed under: News by guenter at 16:27

An important patch for the 1.4.3 release is available. In 1.4.3, Poco::Util::WinRegistryKey used a function (RegDeleteKeyEx) not available on Windows XP 32-bit (it is available starting with WinXP 64-bit SP3). This prevented applications using WinRegistryKey (or ServerApplication, which uses this class) from running on Windows XP. Bug report is here.
This has been fixed in 1.4.3p1, which has just been released. Along with this issue, we have also fixed a testsuite failure in the Foundation testsuite and two potential warnings in the WebSocket sources. Upgrading is recommended for everyone using POCO on Windows. There is no need to re-download the entire release. A patched Util/src/WinRegistryKey.cpp file has been attached to the bug report.
