With the recent Windows 8 RTM I wanted to pull together a list of IRM related fixes. These are fixes for both the client and applications that utilize this functionality, primarily Office.

 

Here are some notes about this information.

  • This is not a complete list. I may have missed some. However these are the fixes I encounter in my life as an RMS support person.
  • The list assumes the latest service pack version is installed on the OS. I am not going to call out any fixes for Windows 7 RTM or Windows XP SP2, and etc.
  • Earlier this year the v2 rights management client was released. I'll refer to the v1 client as MSDRM and v2 as MSIPC.
  • Latest MSIPC Client version: Active Directory Rights Management Service Client 2.1. If running the MSIPC client updated versions should come as a recommended update from Windows Update.
