    Preliminary to the installation I disabled UAC, it takes ages anyway.

    Yes people it is not the actual SP1 that much should have been pretty clear i thought.

    It is a bunch of hotfixes...however that do not mean that it is, or isn't, the same fixes you would get by installing SP1 when it is released.


    The thing is though, the file has been renamed from 20070322113550-Vista_update.exe to 20070322113550-_update.exe and if you search for it's true name it will show up (in places you should not go :p), more importantly the date of the links will show it's true date...which again i thought became clearer when looking at the name 20070322113550, 2007-03-22-113550


    No i don't think it is that new after all.

    Well, you can:
    a) start over and just click the UAC messages as the installer skips installed updates (or if you have UAC disabled - just sit back and relax, lol)
    b) somehow remember which was the last installed update, and just continue running them the manual way from the directory..I'm guessing that the installer installs them in alphabetical order anyway :p

    @Animatrix, that seems to be true, I thought about that when I first saw the name of that installer..but apart that, it really installs something new, I mean maybe not so new actually, but it's something which never appeared on the Windows Update, so I'm thinking, that it can be useful anyway.

    @All, I'll just do some tests/benches after the install will complete and keep you informed. After those BSOD's I had a very interesting update procedure before the logon screen. Yes, it always happens there, but this time it disconnected my video driver (the same happens when updating the video drivers, although I've checked - the version number of the driver is still the same). And after the update procedure the OS just shut itself down, and rebooted. That actually never happened before after a windows update..so I just thought that I should share this with you :p

    Sure not all hotfixes gets released, some remain "request only". Whether they will be included in later service packs no one (ok few) knows. However you can get them non the less, either by request or by other means.

    ---

    Okay just to be clear this file (edit: originally) is from 03-22. It was posted to Russian web sites which explains why Movie maker is in Russian ;)

    It is not the latest version of their so called "Service Pack 1", the latest version is from 01-08 and is 270mb, there is also some update at 40mb.

    Bottom line, this is not likely to have anything to do with the real (non public) beta of service pack 1, whenever that might happen.

    Mind sharing the details/sources on that one? Either here, or via PM if it's not allowed. ;)

    Maybe so, but there might still be something useful in them, and I just like to test thing out :p

    I don't think so:
    a) the timestamp on the hotfix files themselves go as late as jun 18th
    and
    b) the KB numbers correspond to hotfixes which came out way after 22nd march.

    Just search using the file name i gave, it should be pretty clear where this file is from. That goes for anyone wanting the latest version as well use the name and you will find it...oh to hell with it the files have been posted already so i really see no harm, but im not posting the forum link just the download links.

    The original file has obviously been update but the name remain the same, clearly it is not the same original file. But i still say it is originally from 22-03.

    Posted on the forum on "22-03-2007" the file then is only 38.2mb 20070322113550-Vista_update.exe

    Posted on "23-06-2007" the file is now 179mb 20070322113550-Vista_update.exe

    Disabling UAC the first time you boot up Vista is essential, a completely useless feature is what it is. Just there to prevent "newbies" that buys a new computer with vista to look at newspaper websites 1 time a week, from like accidently removing their windows folder or whatever lol..

    -.- Updates are not fake, but it isn't the real SP1, only a pack of all already released hotfixes.
