Microsoft Windows Vista Multi-install OEM Service Pack 1 - FR


Some antivirus software might prevent SP2 from installing, or might slow down the installation. You can try temporarily disabling your antivirus software. If you do so, be sure that you're aware of the risks involved, and be sure to enable it after the service pack is installed.

If you have problems obtaining the service pack from Windows Update, you can download SP2 as a standalone installation package from the Microsoft Download Center website, and then install SP2 manually.

To install SP2 immediately, click Open or Run, and then follow the instructions on your screen. To install SP2 later, click Save to copy the installation file to your computer. When you're ready to install the service pack, open the file you copied to your computer.

This subcomponent of the Internet Connection Sharing/Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) service provides support for plug-ins that allow network protocols to pass through the firewall and work behind Internet Connection Sharing. Application Layer Gateway (ALG) plug-ins can open ports and change data (such as ports and IP addresses) that are embedded in packets. FTP is the only network protocol that has a plug-in that is included with Windows Server. The ALG FTP plug-in supports active FTP sessions through the network address translation (NAT) engine that these components use. The ALG FTP plug-in supports these sessions by redirecting all traffic that meets the following criteria to a private listening port in the range of 3000 to 5000 on the loopback adapter:

As part of the redesign of the network stack, Windows Firewall has been upgraded, with new support for filtering both incoming and outgoing traffic. Advanced packet filter rules can be created that can grant or deny communications to specific services.

Support for the original release of Windows Vista (without a service pack) ended on April 13, 2010.[98] Service Pack 1 reached end of support on July 12, 2011, over three years after its general availability.[99]

A white paper, published by Microsoft on August 29, 2007, outlined the scope and intent of the service pack, identifying three major areas of improvement: reliability and performance, administration experience, and support for newer hardware and standards.[127]

The Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) was replaced by the Group Policy Object Editor. An updated downloadable version of the Group Policy Management Console was released soon after the service pack.

Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 share a single service pack binary, reflecting the fact that their code bases were joined with the release of Server 2008.[140] Service Pack 2 is not a cumulative update meaning that Service Pack 1 must be installed first.

These issues, such as they are, aren't particularly serious. What happens is that Windows reinstalls device drivers when upgrading to a service pack. In some cases, with the affected devices, this reinstallation could cause some problems, which might range from a loss of configured settings to a reversion to default settings. In very rare instances, some functionality might be temporarily lost. For example, with some audio drivers on certain systems, an upgrade to SP1 might disable sound output. But in such cases, a quick visit to the Control Panel would typically fix the problem. Worst case scenario: You might have to reinstall a driver manually.

Most of these issues are fixed, and any remaining issues will be fixed by mid-April. But it's worth reiterating that the majority of people who use these devices and upgrade to SP1 will experience no issues at all. In rare cases, a configuration change or maybe a driver reinstall might be required. But that's the extent of it. "Most of the problems are with audio drivers," Zipkin told me. "But people who have those devices will likely have a smooth install. You may have to reinstall a driver. But we also have service pack support techs who can handle these issues as well." That's an important point: Because Microsoft o
