Check your version under Computer / Properties. I suppose mine was installed during one of the weekly updates.

This is not yet available through Windows Update, if that's what you mean by weekly updates. As of now it is standalone only.

Interesting. I just looked and it's not selected to download or install yet it isn't listed as "optional."

Maybe Microsoft rolls out their Service Pack the same way DirecTV rolls out their DVR software releases :-). I think my updates were the same way -- not listed as optional but not yet selected for install.

There were three updates this morning for Windows 7. Two were recommended and one was optional. Only after downloading and installing all three was the update for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 made available. Check to see if you have the three updates for Windows 7.

I had to re-check for updates to get it. Installed it last night.

Installed it last night. We'll see if anything gets fouled up.

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

... it is. As an option.

Go to Windows Update, then select Windows 7 Service Pack 1.

Most of us shouldn't see much of a difference, it mostly is a rollup of the previously released patches, except for 2008 R2 server stuff.

I think my download was about 80 meg total.

There is a report on the VMWare Fusion forums that Fusion has an issue with SP1. I haven't tried it myself yet. I'll let others try it out first. :grin:

I got it by Windows update yesterday about 5 PM, Pacific Time. Took quite a while to download with several long pauses -- probably very heavy traffic at the MS servers.

The download wasn't automatic, though. I had to click Windows Update on my Start menu to get it going.
