Office 2003 Info Rights fixed

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned an issue I had seen in the newsgroups of folks being locked out of their Information Rights Management protected workbooks.

Opinions seemed to be mixed between ‘never heard of it’ and ‘would never used it’. But a few people did and they got burned in November when it all stopped working and they were locked out of their own files.

Anyway the issue is now apparently resolved by renewing an Office crypto certificate, full info and download available here. If you apply this fix please let us now if it does indeed resolve the problem, or not.

    The questions begging for answers.
    – Why did these certificates expire?
    – Why did it take so long to determine this was the case and fix the problem?
    – What’s the next SNAFU we can expect from MSFT?
