Vista SP1 RC Installed

I’ve had access to it for a while, but just got around to installing it. The good news is now anyone can now because it became public today. The install experience went very smooth and I haven’t had any problems since installing it (earlier today). I developed in VS2008 all day, used Outlook, browsed the web with IE, etc. YMMV.

Keep in mind this is an RC and not RTM, so you will have to uninstall/re-install when it does go live.

  1. I’ve tried a couple pre-RC builds and the RC, but it made my Vista unusable. :(The control panel wouldn’t open. Aero wouldn’t work. Any WPF or Direct3D app would crash the video driver and the whole system just felt sluggish.I tried everything under the sun to find a work around.I checked google and I guess I’m not the only one with these issues.Thankfully system restore worked flawlessly.I’m sure it will be ironed out before RTM…I’m just jealous of everyone who does have the RC working.-Jer

  2. Vista SP1RC installation hangs when only 95% is left. I’m so damn tired of this Vista shit now. Please take me out of this misery and give me an OS that works.
