window xp sp3 Betta version was recently released. i would like to know when they intend to release Master Gold xp sp3. does anyone knows the answer . many thanks
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)
thanks a lot DMwright, that will do
The final XP SP3 can now be downloaded.
It's a bug-fix for W95.
Anybody been brave enough to stick sp3 on yet...? I'll think I'll try it on the Laptop first, as that's not so important as the main rig...!!!
I banged the beta release candidate on weeks ago so i will now uninstall it and put on the genuine full release I had no problems with the RC version it took a load of updates off in the Add and Remove in the control panel . in fact I actually slipstreamed it onto my system disc of which I will do with the full release jmb
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...
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.
That's because although SP3 is now RTM, MS found a compatibility issue with systems running Microsoft Dynamics
Until RMS has been updated the only way to get SP3 is from the direct download.
Ah! That explains it, Pity they couldn't explain that, though.
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...
