Windows Vista SP2 coming!

Recommended Posts

There you go peope!

Thanx so much im installing vista right now so i cant verify if it works but hopefully it will. i see its one of those registry mods where it installs the reg key so u can install via win update so hopefully ms doesnt take it down but watever. just one question: do i need sp1 before it shows up in win update?

again THANK YOU lol

The batch file that rz posted does allow the servicing stack to download and afterwards if you reboot (may not be necessary), it will show the SP2 download available and let you download it.

yes the batch file works perfectly. Is it safe to install on my main vista machine?

Yes, just installed. The sad thing is, is that I have to repatch my theme files so I can customize my visual styles again... :dry:

does anyone have a patch to remove the watermark on desktop?

cant you just go into the registry and unpaint the desktop?

Edit : Follow this tutorial but doing the opisite : http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/vista...ktopversion.htm

I can only see the first SP2 update which is only like 4mb. Do I need to restart again to see the update?

I'm not going to swear to it, but Vista feels faster now! (At least it does to me.)

no scan a couple of times, maybe MS nuked the reg key.

what ya mean? as in microsoft planted a ip finder that reports back to microsoft and blocks the ip from downloading SP2?
