Re: Service Pack Overviews

I will be interested to see if it possible to slipstream SP1 onto Vista 64 bit so that I can do a full install before connecting to the internet

Re: Service Pack Overviews

Doing a bit of digging the easy slipstream process for Vista which was announced by Microsoft has fallen by the wayside for SP1 so the options are basically a reverse integration which is a waste of time or to download SP1 exe in advance.

Re: Service Pack Overviews

That above link is MS Office service pack 3, and the disabled file types can be reenabled (admittedly by messing with the registry, but still...)
I'll be installing XP SP3 as soon as is possible to be honest.

Orbrey,
You and I might do that but your average user wouldn't have a clue.
I just hope they backtrack on that one before public release.

Re: Service Pack Overviews

That is a fair point. I wonder if it warns you prior to install... you'd hope so really.

Re: Service Pack Overviews

What are the benefits of XP's SP3?
Any new needed features? - Otherwise I'll be sticking with SP2...
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
