Last week we released Service Pack 2 for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.  The links in the “Additional Resources” section provide more depth information, but here are some key pieces of information:

  • Language Release Schedule: Five languages (English, French, German, Japanese and Spanish) are part of the first release.  Wave 2 will include an additional thirty-one languages
  • Prerequisites: You must have Windows Vista SP1 installed prior to installing SP2.  Windows Server 2008 shipped with SP1 included
  • Windows Update: SP2 is currently an optional update.  It will eventually be offered as an Automatic Update, however it will not install automatically until the EULA has been accepted
  • Pre-Release Builds: If you have a Beta / Release Candidate build of SP2, you must uninstall the pre-release version before installing the RTM version.  You cannot upgrade from a pre-release build to the RTM build
  • Internet Explorer 8: Internet Explorer 8 is not included in SP2

See you on Friday …
