imageWe recognize that Windows 7 is an opportunity for organizations to reduce their costs, improve security, and improve productivity. Windows 7 helps achieve these goals. However, organizations do not maximize the return on investment of Windows 7 without modern infrastructure to support it.

We want organizations to benefit from the latest platform's features. To achieve these goals, we want to help organizations migrate to our latest management platform. To do this, we have released a compatibility pack that adds Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 as supported clients in Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 Service Pack 3 (SP3). This compatibility pack helps SMS 2003 SP3 users migrate their software to Configuration Manager 2007 while realizing immediate benefits from their Windows 7 investment.

For all the details and to download the Compatibility Pack see the following new Knowledge Base article:
