I believe the updater has changed. Cause it was still labeled as RC1 when it was released. It is now RTM. So they would have to change the updater to show the change in at least that part of the code.
I would like to know why i couldnt install Dreamscene. But sadly these answers may never be found. At elast not until RTM does get rleeased and someone can go thru the code of it line by line.
1. Open Registry Editor (by typing Regedit in Start Search or by going to a command prompt and entering regedit)
2. Navigate to the following registry key:
3. In the right pane, you will see lots of registry subkeys. Check the following Key
This contains build and revision number. For example, Vista SP1 Refresh 2 (the purported RTM) has the following build number: 6001.18000.rtm.080118-1840
This is what I have - installed as SP1 RC Refresh 2 of course. But some circles are suggesting that RTM is build 2040
No. MS has confirmed to me that that registry entry is harmless.I don't think it has an expiry date. The only concern I have hanging on to refresh 2 is the question of whether or not it's blocking other updates.
Question 2, if I do remove it I assume that I would also have to remove that registry entry too (the one that told WU to download it)?
