  • Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Beta

    There are rumours that Vista SP1 Beta is available for download. Has anyone seen a source? I would very much appreciate a chance to try the service pack since I have some trouble with my Vista installation.

    Any advice I give is to the best of my knowledge, there is no guarantee what so ever that it will actually work in your particular scenario. I will not accept any responsibility for unexpected consequences, after all - you are taking advice from a complete stranger over the internet. =)

    Vista SP1 Beta is now open for selected beta testers. If you get your hands on a copy, someone must have violated their EULA... Wait a while, I'm sure MS will open it for the public in some way or another, just like they did with most last SPs.

            I just received this late breaking brief:

            From the Editor

            Greetings JASON,

            It's been several months since the Windows Vista launch and IT organizations are reporting a more streamlined desktop environment and greater security, management control, and better self-healing capabilities. The results, they say, are higher service levels and a better experience for end users. A big part of this is due to your feedback and the diligent work to consistently reduce the effort required for roll-out preparation. To familiarize yourself with Windows Vista deployment requirements, check out the latest deployment guides and tools. We also have significantly increased the availability of Windows Vista-compatible applications in addition to ensuring that we offer the right guidance through the "Application Compatibility Toolkit" for you to test-drive Windows Vista in your environment right now. There is peace of mind in knowing that ongoing improvements are available dynamically through Windows Update and we also have announced what is coming in Windows Vista SP1 to help you to better plan and continue with your ongoing pilots. The first thing to note is that Windows update is taking care of important incremental fixes and while SP1 delivers enhancements to compatibility and reliability, it will not contain new features. It is built and tested to enable smooth transitions for applications from Windows Vista RTM to Windows Vista SP1. If you want more information on the latest Windows Updates, here are two Knowledge Base articles that address reliability and compatibility: KB 938194, KB 938979.
