Hello all. I am trying to figure out which file I need to get SP1 for my Windows 7. I'm trying to install SQL Server Evaluation 2012 and I'm getting a message that says I need SP 1 installed, before I can install SQL Server 2012.
I think the file is here:
The only problem is that there are a LOT of files there. Do I need one of those, or something else perhaps.
Thanks for the help and guidance with this!!

I did it a few times; made sure to get everything. Nevertheless, I had to manually go get the SP 1. I would have thought it would come in with the critical updates. Guess not.
