Vista SP1

Hi all,


Today we made Windows Vista SP1 available for Windows Vista systems in English, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese. 


What does this mean for you?  Well, here are some details of what you can expect:


Windows Update Users (or those of you who manage systems that directly connect to WU)

From now until sometime in mid-April, SP1 will be interactively available for customers who visit the Windows Update control panel.   In mid-April, SP1 will begin automatically downloading according to the settings selected by the user.


What does this mean?

If you're interested in installing SP1 today, you'll need to click start-->all programs-->windows update and then "check for updates."   If previously released SP1 prerequisites are installed, you'll then see SP1 pre-checked and ready for download and installation.    After you download the service pack using Windows Update, you'll see a series of screens and be asked to make a few quick choices before the installation of SP1 will be underway.  (Note: there’s a few reasons you might not see SP1 available.  If you’d like to learn more check out Knowledge Base Article 948343.)



Windows Server Update Services Admins


We'll be publishing SP1 directly to WSUS at a future date, and before then we will make a Standalone Package of the service pack and it’s prerequisites, available on the MU Catalog so that WSUS admins, who'd like to test and deploy the update, can easily import the service pack from the catalog into WSUS.  We will give an update when the standalone package is available.  At that time we will refer you to the WSUS blog for more information and guidance to prepare for the catalog import of SP1 to your WSUS servers. 

For more details on the release of SP1, check out the Vista Team blog.


Thanks much!
