Windows 7 SP1 now available on TechNet and MSDN

Recommended Posts

Windows 7 SP1 RTM is now available to MSDN and TechNet customers.

Microsoft posted its final build of Windows 7 SP1 to MSDN and TechNet customers on Wednesday. Copies of Microsoft’s Windows 7 SP1 RTM update leaked last month to file sharing websites ahead of its release. Microsoft has confirmed 7601.17514.101119-1850 is the final RTM. The software giant will offer the build to the public on February 22 and it is expected to be released to Windows Update shortly afterwards.

Work on Windows 7 SP2 has already begun as early as fall 2010. Microsoft is reportedly planning 132 updates for x86 Windows 7 SP2 and 171 updates for x64 Windows 7 SP2 at the time of writing. Microsoft hasn’t officially started talking about SP2 but expect it to land in the 2012 timeframe.

SP1 will include RemoteFX which provides rich 3-D graphical experience for remote users. The service pack also will include a series of incremental updates, previously released on Windows Update for both Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.

Make sure you have run the latest SURT (System Update Readiness Tool) [November 2010] before trying to install SP1.

32-bit: System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 (KB947821) [November 2010]

64-bit: System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB947821) [November 2010]

Also if you want to use RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools), you'll need to install before you install SP1 because RSAT won't install after SP1 is installed (or wait until April 2011 for the RSAT update...)
