China asks Microsoft to explain its software’s ‘compatibility and bundling issue

According to a China Daily report, China's latest antitrust investigations have hit US software giant Microsoft. As a part of the antitrust investigations into Microsoft's business practices in China, the company has been asked by the Chinese officials to explain what they have called 'compatibility and bundling issues' with its software.

In connection with the antitrust investigation against Microsoft, China's State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC) has revealed in a Monday statement on its website that the US firm has been given a 20-day deadline to explain 'compatibility and bundling issues' with its software.

Microsoft has to give a written explanation about the mentioned issues within 20 days. The deadline, as per the SAIC, was issued to Microsoft in a meeting which was held between the SAIC officials and Microsoft's personnel on Monday.

The meeting was attended by David Chen, a Microsoft VP who oversees the company's legal and corporate affairs in China.

Meanwhile, the SAIC has further elaborated in its website statement that it has sought explanation from Microsoft on "problems like incompatibility and other issues caused by a lack of released information about its Windows and Office software."
