I've stuck sp3 on the Lappy now, just out of curiosity... No noticeable improvement whatsoever for me....

I've slipstreamed it onto my XP disc though, which'll save me having to get nigh on 100 updates before I start installing everything, which can only be a good thing...!

I'll try the slipstreamed version on the lappy one day... ;)

Ah! That explains it, Pity they couldn't explain that, though.

That's because although SP3 is now RTM, MS found a compatibility issue with systems running Microsoft Dynamics RMS...

Until RMS has been updated the only way to get SP3 is from the direct download.

I actually went looking for it on the windoze website and could only find documentation that told me how great it was, no mention of the Service Pack itself. I wonder if they'll release it as a CD like they have in the past.

I won't be bothering.

After all, it's only going to contain all the fixes that we already have and others that'll get installed by Winderz update...

Let me know how it works for you.

I'll do it only after backing up ALL my images to the external rig first.

Yup, the fix for W98 should be ready by Christmas.


(Must check out that real download, however)

All Microsoft have said is the final release will be in the first half of 2008..

..so, before the end of June is about as close as we can get at the moment.
(and that's subject to change)
