   products but can be triggered by other activity.

   shutdown of afsd_service.exe was not clean.

The significant changes since 1.7.12 are:

 * Fixes problems with Adobe Acrobat Reader

 * Fixes problems with Adobe Acrobat Pro X

 * Fixes problems with Windows Media Player

 * Corrects BSODs
   . interaction with Microsoft anti-virus product
   . kernel memory corruption due to race condition

 * Increased maximum path depth from 32 to 512 expanded components
   (symlinks, mount points, @sys substitutions)

1.7.14 is the recommended release of OpenAFS for Microsoft Windows
users. It supports Microsoft Windows client operating systems from
Windows XP SP3 through Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server operating
systems from 2003 SP2 through 2008 R2 SP1.  The 1.7.14 Windows client is
