Bug on SharePoint Server 2007 SP2 and Hotfix

Hi All, 

PROBLEM:
If we try to update the SharePoint 2007 service pack 2, you may encounter an error: 
"Trial Period Expired"

Apparently, we are using Project Server 2007 and few months back we installed SharePoint 2007 SP2. a Product expiration date is improperly activated. Project server expiry is for 180 days and when you install SP2, after 180 days, you will get this error message.

RESOLUTION: 
Microsoft rushed with hotfix. The good news is that customer's data, configuration, and application code is not affected. These are the steps to apply the hotfix

Step1: Download the hotfix.
Step2: Install the hotfix and choose the default settings. 
Step3: Reboot the system. 

And you are done!!. There is no need to apply the Product ID number (PID) on the Convert License Type page in Central Administration.

Cheers, 
--Aroh
