  • Is this BETA or RC or is this the final release



  • @Jon

    It is the RTM version so final

  • are you frickin' serious?  Vista SP!1 is out and the only way we can get BUG FIXED is through SUBSCRIBING?


  • I have nothing in my "Top Downloads" section, nor can I find any mention of service pack 1 in my technet subscription, performing a search yields 0 results, the last thing posted containing the word vista was on the 31/1/2008, do I need to wait longer?

  • Ryan,

    The reason you cannot find it is you havent paid your subscription fee for the PLUS section. I had the same problem and tried to find it. Only paying technet plus members get it. Doesnt seem worth $512 to me for 2 weeks early.

  • I am a paid up member of Technet Plus Australia and I can't get it either. First Microsoft stop shipping me disks saying they have changed my membership, now I can't get to the Top Downloads. What is my company paying for? Is it a bug on the Technet Plus Australia site?

  • Just a question, what's the build details of the final SP1 release?

  • Hey guys, here is the details about the top downloads control

  • Get real, no way in hell is it worth paying for 2 weeks earlier access for a service pack.

    Your crappy software costs enough without throwing in a Technet membership. Anyone got a torrent?

  • Well I can now get Vista SP1 from the Top DOwnloads as they are now showing on teh site. Thanks for whomever got it working. If you don't mind my asking what was th eproblem?

  • The issue with Top Downloads has been corrected. There was a correction needed in the XML file for the Top Downloads control.

  • What a lot of crap. If it is ready why not let everyone have it asap. But I suppose applying SP1 to VISTA is like flogging a dead horse anyway.  Just couldn't help commenting on Microsoft shitty attitued (again). So I'm still sticking with XP. I don't need to relearn how to use my PC. I just want to use it.

  • Microsoft like to make people pay to fix their bugs for them...
