SP1 Blocker Tool

  • Hi Sanmartin, exactly SP1 RTM for Windows 7/Server 2008 R2 is very closed. GA (General Availability)  will be available for public in Q1 2011, but the RTM version will be installed on organizations and other sector before the end of the year.

  • Did anyone see this new download: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=d7c9a07a-5267-4bd6-87d0-e2a72099edb7?


    I saw that, and my first thought was "why didn't they use an ADMX, instead of ADM?   So much nicer using ADMX".   Also since it is just a reg key, why not mention using  GPO Preferences as another method.

    But then I looked inside the download

    Look at the dates.      Nice bit of recycling.  :-)

  • Seems like it was already used as a preparation tool for Vista SP1. As Vista SP1 came out in February, 2008 (RTM, GA was in March/April), that would be a nice hint for the Windows 7 SP1 schedule.
