Microsoft Releases Windows Vista Service Pack 1

Press Release

While Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) has been available to MSDN subscribers for a while now, everyone else has been forced to wait to receive what Microsoft is calling "the benefit of a year's worth of improvements." Well that wait came to an end today when Microsoft made the highly-anticipated update publically available via the "Windows Update" and "Microsoft Download Center" Web sites.

For the time being, the update will need to be installed manually. It's not scheduled to be rolled out via "Automatic Updates" until mid-April. The easiest way to get it is to click "check for updates" from the "Windows Update" control panel applet. If you don't see it listed, don't worry. There are a number of reasons why SP1 may not be available. To learn more about the situation and how to address the issues, take a look at the following knowledgebase article: KB948343: Windows Vista Service Pack 1 is not available for installation from Windows Update and is not offered by Automatic Updates.

Installation takes a while, but I encountered no problems when updating my laptop. I only mention it because it's a tablet with quite a few integrated peripherals (touch screen, fingerprint reader, bluetooth, webcam, wireless N card, etc.) so I was a little worried about driver compatability.

Here's a screen cap of the "About Windows" dialog box after installation indicating "Microsoft Windows Version 6.0 (Build 6001: Service Pack 1)":
