Stand Alone, Full I suppose.
i've put it on three systems so far, and none had issues. All had deamon tools, kaspersky, and thats it for running apps in the background.
If you've disabled any services, i suggest putting em back on.
Ok Ill try that becuase it still give me that same error....
been looking forward to this, for sure
Ok so Im just going to try the update through windows Update instead of the Stand alone, maybe now it will work.
Anyone know if PAE is enabled by default now in SP1. Or does it still need the command line switch??
Lol, it's only 66.9 MB. After seeing all the pre-quils and hacks of 400 mb and 1 gig I just found it funny that it was so tiny... Not sure if there's a part 2 to this install but we'll see soon enough
OK sweet its installed thanks for the help guys.
Man those are huge files...
Ignore my previous question. Going to try installing SP1 as soon as the Beta uninstalls. Hopefully I get my vista index back!
Anyone got that dx10.1 tech demo? Should be able to actually run it now.
does anyone get message that language of OS and instalilation file doesn't match?
OS english, SP 1 english
upgraded via windows update. works fine with acer 5920 laptop
upgraded my desktop now. laptop will be updated later. so... hopefully this may help out with some random crashings that tends to occur. wonder what else is it going to help with. speed of load up??
They had a lot to fix .
Still dl'ing..I'm eager to see how much they fixed stuff.
Only 66.9 megs via windows update for me.
people who were up to date are only taking 70MB. Thats because SP1 includes all the updates as well.
IMO, grab the full standalone version - when you next format, or update another rig you will save the badwidth you spent on the larger file.
But it has only 5 languages...........
So whats the verdict much difference with it?
im impressed overall, i have the 32-bit version of vista and it didn't read all my 4gb of RAM, now it reads up a solid 4gb and i've noticed game improvment though i didn't like that my score overall was 5 w/o sp1 and with sp1 it made my score 4.8
just so that you know.
Vista SP0 read how much ram was available - so if you had 4GB but only 3GB was usable, it would show 3GB.
Vista SP1 shows how much is installed total, not how much is usable - so even if it reads 4GB, you're gunna be capped at 3GB usable.
as i said before i too have noticed some gaming improvements. would like more people to comment.
that makes sense...i guess its a "trick' but i had keyboard and mouse problems without the service pack and i was about to return the damn thing today good thing i went out on a limb and see if it would work with sp1 and it worked. i have the logitech mx 3200 desktop laser cordless. but off topic here, im guessing ms cancled the whole ultimate extras things?
ultimate extras went off, yeah.
Vista had an update for USB and 4GB of ram, i needed it to make my webcams work - it was never on windows update, and had to be acquired manually.
Been running SP1 since mid february (yay for Technet-access ) without issues what so ever. Installed it on two game-boxes and three laptops. Seen increases in speed when it comes to copying large files/horde of files to/from disk and network, Boot-speed is pretty much the same (never been an issue for me anyway, as I can easily wait the few extra seconds. Perfect get-more-beer-break).
Also seen a marginal increase in framerates in games (5 to 10ish on average) compared to SP0. World in Conflict, Company of Heroes, Crysis and other DX10-games now look better (Lots of small details that raise the general yumminess of the games).
the ram available with vista simple or vista with sp1 is not relevant, because the windows will set a value that dependents from one hardware configuration to another hardware configuration.
Also in time the windows try to optimize the space that he (vista) use in memory. So if you have a pc with a clean install and one pc with vista installed two weeks ago, the vista space in memory will be different from one pc to another, even are same configuration.
that was all with vista memory eating
and now ... my vista say the sp1 patch on the windows update list (that from vista) will need 120MB space to download..
I also wait to see if will have a positive impact on the masses
