Vista SP1 is out

Written by Eliot Kucharik

Available for anyone

After struggling to release Vista SP1 for months, Microsoft finally did it. While the SP1 is available via Windows Update on April 18th, you can get the full bloated version via the Download-Center. This first version is called "Wave 0" and contains all updates for English, German, French, Spanish and Japanese languages. All other languages will follow later. The 32-bit version will take 484.5MB, the 64-bit version will not fit on a CD with its 726.5MB. All major changes are described in this Whitepaper.

Before you update your Vista we urge you to make a back-up first. Microsoft had some problems with drivers and some programs crashing Vista after updating, especially anti-viral products. Update any programs to Vista SP1 compatible versions, also be sure your drivers are on the compatibility list. Of course, it may be possible your hardware is not yet on any compatibility list, so a back-up will not hurt. We wrote about some more details here.

You can download the 32-bit version and the 64-bit version.
