Download for the 'Pre beta version of service pack 2 for vista'...
I've copied this from VR Zone website:
All you need to get your hands on this pre-beta are the right registry keys. The batch file on the gHacks site carries out the changes necessary to see the pre-beta.
Time for some warnings:
This download of SP2 is a pre-beta, which means all sorts of nasty things could go wrong.
If you install this on your main system or any system you rely on, you are an idiot!
If you don’t have time in your life for things going wrong, don’t do this!
Don’t expect to see anything exciting …
Just click on the batch file that you've downloaded and it inserts the correct registry keys to allow the update utility to download the service pack. I needed to run the updater a few times before it found the required downloads and the service pack is 296MB in size although this size may change.
Ok, I've just installed it and so far, apart from an update to windows mail, any changes are not obvious. Here's a couple of screenshots for the record... I'm now gonna have a good look around and see, if possible, what has changed.
Actually it's a different version.. Check out the numbers on the screenshot in this post and check the version in the screenshot posted last week. This version is 113 whilst last weeks was 105.. As before no major changes detected but will keep you posted...
