Windows Releases Service Pack 2 for Vista

June 2, 2009

Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans began installing Microsoft’s Windows Vista Service Pack 2 upon its release on May 26. Microsoft claims SP2 contains both performance and security tweaks and fixes. SP2 allegedly provides customer and partner feedback-driven fixes into a single service pack, minimizing deployment and testing complexity.

Many contend one of the biggest problems with Vista is compatibility issues with third-party software vendor partners.  Since SP1 Microsoft released several application compatibility updates to allow more applications to play well with Vista.  In addition to all previously released updates since SP1, SP2 supports new types of hardware, and adds support for several emerging standards. One of the changes Onsite noticed after installing SP2 is a boost in free disk space.

There are a few prerequisites to installing SP2:  Of course you must have a genuine copy of Vista running SP1, (SP1 was released March 2008).  Any beta versions of SP2 should be removed prior to attempts to install SP2.  Beta versions of Windows Vista SP2 are time-limited software that will operate until June 1st, 2010.  If you installed any beta versions of Windows Vista SP2 it is highly recommended that you uninstall them before June 1st, 2010.

If you have any questions or require help with your installation of Vista SP2, kindly contact the Microsoft specialists at  Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans.
