Download Vista Service Pack 1 to correct Office 2007 bugs

Vista Service Pack 1 corrects Office 2007 bugs

Vista Service Pack 1 has been out for a while, but I'm slow to recommend updates. Reports are it's working well. Vista and Office 2007 users are finally getting some relief for some of the problems that have plagued their systems.

Vista Service Pack 1 comes with Windows Update, but you might have to update some drivers before it installs. For more information, start with Release Notes for Windows Vista Service Pack 1.

Have great caution!! My experience was a total nightmare with the update screwing my windows partion so thoroughly that only re-format and total re-build would correct the problem.

What went wrong? Can you describe the problems you had?

Has the service pack fixed compatability with WMP11 and 5.1 surround sound playback?

If Vista SP1 hasn't solved your problem, or things or worse, please describe your problem here. We might not be able to help, but your experience might help someone else.

I thought Microsoft might solve the problem of opening OWA 2003 in Vista SP1 but no luck, looks more likely I have to patch my Exchange 2003 to make it work... hate when I have to make change on running server

I stumbled across this today and think this may help you. It's an Exchange hotfix and a known problem.

rshafiq: I use Vista SP1 and OWA 2003 and have not experienced any problems. What problems are you having on your end? Also, what change on the Exchange server are you referring to?
