John Gray said:We are pleased to announce that we’ve made the Windows Vista SP1 “RC Refresh” (Build 17128) available for preview. This build will only be available via the “WU Experience.” The standalone will not be made available. Please see these technet pages: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/bb738089.aspx for the link to install the script that will enable this update over Windows Update.
If you are running the RC, build 17052, you do not need to install this build – it is optional. If you do choose to install the new build, you must uninstall the RC build of the service pack first.
Many of the fixes between RC and RC Refresh will address some of the install problems many of you have been experiencing:
· SP install starts, and then just stops.
· Some of the 8007005 and similar errors
If you have been unable to install, we would appreciate if you would try this build. If it resolves your issue, please update any posts that you have made letting us know that it worked, and we’ll mark that thread as answered.
I want to thank all of you for the hard work in installing and testing the SP, especially those of you that have been frustrated by the install failures. We have another small batch of install failures that were not fixed yet in this build, but will have a fix prior to RTM. We know that there will still be some install issues with this build but it is a lot better. I know we haven’t kept up with many of the issues in the forum, but your feedback and the error codes and data from some of you has gone a long way to improving current builds. We've been hard at work on fixing the issues.
John Gray and the Vista SP1 team.
