    Its on Windows Update, save this as anything.cmd and run it (as administrator of course)
    Code:
    @echo off
    
    reg delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSp2 /f > NUL 2>&1
    reg delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSP2 /f > NUL 2>&1
    
    reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSp2 /v Beta1 /t REG_SZ /d C21A5C64-2530-CC19-042F-9ABDB4ED27F9 /f
    IF NOT %errorlevel% == 0 ( goto ERROR)
    
    :SUCCESS
    @echo.
    echo ===========================================================
    echo  Windows Vista SP2 registry key has been set successfully.
    echo  Please check for updates in Windows Update.
    echo ===========================================================
    @echo.
    goto END
    
    :ERROR
    @echo.
    echo ===========================================================
    echo  FAILED to set Windows Vista SP2 registry keys.
    echo  Please run this script by right clicking and selecting
    echo  "Run as Administrator".
    echo ===========================================================
    @echo.
    goto END
    
    :END
    pause
    Now run Windows Update and you should see a hotfix you need to apply before you install sp2, after you install that you may need to run Microsoft Update again

    Warning: SP2 will not install on a vLited install it will fail, it has to be a full vista install

    That sounds a bit more like it. People keep trying to tell me it's 16497 but i have had that installed for months. It's GOT to be something w/ a higher number.

    Second of all, on the CPP page, it's 4 o clock, the business day is almost over, and they aint posted ****. BIG SHOCKER.

    @xStevenx, why you get so stressed about this 'CPP' update?

    Build 16497 was originally only distributed to a 'select' number of testers, i'm guessing there feedback has been good, so MS decided to release the same build to a much larger audience to get more feedback.

    If you already have 16497 and are happy with it, then good.

    MS will release the final when they are happy with it ;)

    Just my 2 cents worth

    Haha. Downloadable x64 installer is even funnier. It creates recursively folders and finally it can't "find" files inside last folder because of ntfs path length limit :D

    Can't even delete files without moving folder inside folder to root first...


    Time to try winupdate again :rolleyes:
