Windows Vista Service Pack 1 RC Refresh 2 is available to Beta testers through Windows Update. Experience the WU installation path for Windows Vista SP1 by following 4 simple steps and give us your feedback to improve our quality.


Notice: The following Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) builds represent RC Refresh 2 code. These builds incorporate all tested changes up to Microsoft's RC Refresh 2 date. Please note that these builds are provided for additional beta testing purposes only and may not be distributed. These builds are provided to you "as is" and are subject to change. Your right to use these builds will expire upon Microsoft's commercial release of SP1 to the public.


Systems running on Windows Vista RTM typically require two or three updates before SP1 can be installed. These updates are permanent on your Windows Vista systems. Windows Update will detect your system configuration and offer the prerequisite packages that are applicable to your system. Based on the state of your system, Windows Update will offer you all the applicable prerequisite packages and SP1 in a sequential order. For details, please see the instructions below.


If you already installed the Service Pack to your machine, you must uninstall the previous build before installing RC Refresh 2.


Here are 4 simple steps to get SP1 on your machine.


On Vista RTM

1. Download the script to your machine and run it on elevated prompt after removing ".remove" from the filename.

· To run the script on elevated prompt, after you download the script, right click on the file and select "Run as administrator" option.

· The script sets a registry key on your system. The registry key is required for WU server to recognize your machine as a valid target for Vista SP1.

· After running the script, Windows Update automatic updates will automatically update your machine over the next several days with the appropriate prerequisites and then offer the Service Pack. If you would like to install SP1 quicker you can manually do the next few steps to speed up the process.


2. Install all pending "Important" updates and the pre-requisite updates for SP1. You may have to repeat this several times to get fully up to date.

· Check for updates on Windows Update. Go to Control Panel ? System and Maintenance ? Windows Update and check for updates by clicking on "Check for Updates" in the top left of the task pane.

· You will be offered all previously released Windows Vista updates that you may not have installed on your system. Install all applicable updates.

· If you have Windows Vista Ultimate, or Windows Vista Enterprise, Update for Windows (KB935509) should be in this list. If you have any other version, Update for Windows KB938371 should show up in this list. Reboot your machine when prompted. If you do not have Vista Ultimate or Enterprise, Update for Windows KB938371 should show up first and KB935509 is not required.

· If you reboot and rescan on Windows Update right away, sometimes times you may not see all updates. This may be caused by the installer service completing the install of the prior update. Please wait 5-10 minutes and scan again. (This delay should not be required for the final SP1 release.)


3. Install Update for Windows (KB937287).

· Update for Windows (KB937287) it does not require a reboot. This is the "installer" code for the service pack.


4. Install Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (KB936330).

· Wait for 10-15 minutes prior to checking for updates again, to enable the installer to complete it's self installation.

· Check for updates on Windows Update again. Windows Vista Service Pack 1 IKB936330) should be available.


Don't forget to post your mini-review in the newsgroups and complete the install survey located here: http://connect.microsoft.com/windows/Su ... veyID=5418.


Regards,
The Windows Beta Team

The word "RTL" is in the eula of RCR2.

The version number is 6001.18000!

I think this version is the final one.

notice the version isn't there and the number is bumped to 18000.
It works great even in VM, this could be possibly RTM if no major bugs are found.
I bet microsoft doesn't want to waste bandwidth.

you paste this code in a text file and save it as a batch file (*.bat)
and run it, then go to windows updates and get sp1, you may need afew patches before you can get sp1.

Code:
@echo off

reg delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSp1 /f > NUL 2>&1
reg delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSP1 /f > NUL 2>&1

reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSp1 /v Beta1 /t REG_SZ /d dcf99ef8-d784-414e-b411-81a910d2761d /f
IF NOT %errorlevel% == 0 ( goto ERROR)

:SUCCESS
@echo.
echo ===========================================================
echo  Windows Vista SP1 registry key has been set successfully.
echo  Please check for updates in Windows Update.
echo ===========================================================
@echo.
goto END

:ERROR
@echo.
echo ===========================================================
echo  FAILED to set Windows Vista SP1 registry keys.
echo  Please run this script by right clicking and selecting
echo  "Run as Administrator".
echo ===========================================================
@echo.
goto END

:END
pause

Awesome, due to a screwup in the updating procedure some of us testers are unable to DL it from WU and it doesn't look like they'll be providing a standalone for this drop. Thanks. :)
