A friend of mine has his laptop and 2 desktops set up for a local network but can't get the laptop with Vista to play nice. Will this help him be able to use shared files and printers on his network with the XP machines?I've looked through another forum's opinions and benchmark of SP1 RC, and it seems to fix a lot of network issues, and made the OS generally more responsive. No improvement on gaming performance unfortunately.
No, after the install the "Read-me file" said you would have to restart your computer a couple of times, after the install, for all their spam to disappear.Uh, it's still installed. It would be nice to keep it installed AND get rid of the stupid text on my desktop.
Looks like I read it wrong, it's there until you uninstall it.Vista Service Pack 1 Read-Me File said:• Windows Vista SP1 Release Candidate is Time-Limited software. It will no longer operate after June 30, 2008 and should be uninstalled prior to that date. Note: After installation your desktop will show the text “Evaluation Copy”. This does not mean that your system is no longer “Genuine”. It means that you have installed a test version of software which is time-limited.
• The “Evaluation Copy” text will show up on the 2nd boot after installing the service pack. Likewise, the Evaluation Copy text will remain during the first boot after uninstall, but will disappear after the next reboot.
Have you restarted your pc after it was all installed? It will pop up.Finished installing SP1 RC last night
1 - I didn't see any watermark text on my desktop saying it's an evaluation copy :scratch: I have Home Premium.
2 - It fixed the issue I was having :twothumb: The svchost.exe process tied with the Windows Audio Endpoint Builder service was constantly running in the background using 50% of the cpu. Now, it's no more
3 - It freed up exactly 25GB of my hard drive :lol: I'm guessing it was the page file or something :dunno:
