Windows Vista SP2 Beta Build 16489 released to testers

Build: 6002.16489 (lh_sp2beta.080924-1740)

Apparently aswell as the GUID reg entrie, 955430 is needed too.

Thanks mirage smile.gif, was 955430 needed aswell?

yes, this is the Servicing Stack update. This must be installed first and after a reboot you have to search for updates again and now you'll see the Sp2 Beta

OK. We don`t need to go looking for it then.

Can you give details.. was your system at sp1 plus all updates then you edited reg, went to windows update, installed 955430, rebooted, went to windows update and sp2 is there?

Also is this on a real install or in a VM?

It is exactly my situation.


On the other hand I copy-stuck the script given on one page in the program: Invite of order (.cmd programer)

After Windows Update Program found 955430 Update and reboot of my Computer and Launch Windows Update again and SP2 Pre-Beta Update Installation is visible.

Installed in my real Machine, not Virtual.

And for me installed in French auto (my language) ^^

It maybe because it`s in a VM then, although...

Just wondering if anyone knows what hotfixes SP2 has tucked inside that are not readily available from M$oft?
I have not seen a lot of interest in the SP2 Beta release compared to when SP1 was released as a Beta.

EDIT: No need to reply I answered the question for myself. I downloaded SP2 and unpacked it. Here is a screenshot of the unpacked SP2 exe:

For anyone not seeing sp2 after adding the reg entrie, update the windows update engine. You can get it from kb 949104.

It wasn`t showing for me and after doing that there it is, downloading...
