    On April 28th, we announced that Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 (Service Pack 2) SP2 had RTM’d. Today, we are pleased to announce the Release to Web (RTW) for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 SP2.

    Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 SP2, a combined service pack for both operating systems encapsulated in a single installer, will simplify deployment, management, and support for IT Professionals. It includes support for new types of hardware and emerging hardware standards, as well as updates since SP1. For specific information on what’s included in SP2, visit the notable changes document.

    Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 SP2 is now available for download on the Microsoft Download Center and on Windows Update.

    Download 64-bit Vista SP2: Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 SP2 x64 (5 Language Standalone)


    Consumers with Windows Vista SP1 can visit the Microsoft Download Center or use Windows Update (WU) to install SP2, but my suggestion is to turn on Automatic Update (AU) and sometime during the coming months your computer will download and install SP2. Similar to previous releases, SP2 delivery over Automatic Update is a “throttled release” which will begin in June.

    Business customers who require additional time to prepare for the download and deployment of SP2 can use the same blocker tool kit provided for Windows Vista SP1 to delay deployment.

    Business customers with Windows Vista will find the transition to Windows 7 will be significantly more straightforward due to the high degree of compatibility between Windows Vista and Windows 7. For more on Windows deployment guidance, I suggest reading this blog post from Gavriella Schuster.

    Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 SP2 represents Microsoft’s continued commitment to quality. While most updates contained in SP2 are available as individual downloads, the roll-up convenience of SP2 is a major benefit for administrators. This functionality coupled with new advanced deployment features, such as the single installer and the pre-installation analyzer, means SP2 continues to provide ongoing improvements that our customers have grown to expect from Microsoft. For more detail on SP2’s contents, see Hotfixes and Security Updates in Windows Server 2008 SP2 and Windows Vista SP2.

    warning   Warning
    Vista SP2 requires that Vista SP1 be installed before installing SP2. The SP2 does not include SP1 in it.

    What 32-bit or 64-bit Vista do I have?
    • Open the Control Panel (Classic View) and click the System icon, or right click Computer in the Start Menu and click on Properties. You will see the bit version under the System type section.

    Hello Kiddieboy,

    Unfortunately, SP2 does not include SP1 and will require that SP1 already be installed prior to installing SP2.

    Oh no. Well, luckily you can have it again in about an hour or so.

    Why SP1 may not be available for you and how to get it

    I just upgraded to SP2 and the install went very easily and quite quick. I had previously tweeked my system using tips off this site. My question is will installing SP2 have undone the tweeks?

    Thanks in Advance

    Hello Nixey,

    It may undo some of them. You might go back and double check them to be sure.

    I installed SP2 but then Fallout3 wouldn't launch so I took it off. What good is that?
