Microsoft rolled out Vista SP2 (Service Pack 2) back in May, when the service pack reached RTW (Release to Web) status. The problem is that at the time Vista SP2 came as either a 5 Language Standalone or a 5 Language DVD ISO, with the emphasis of” 5 language.” Now the Redmond-bases software giant has released a second wave of Vista SP2 that comes with support for all 36 languages available in Vista and Windows Server 2008.

Windows Communications Manager on the Windows Client Communications Team, Brandon LeBlanc, explains: Back on May 26th, we announced Windows Vista SP2 and Windows Server 2008 SP2 hit the RTW milestone. The first wave of languages (English, German, French, Spanish, and Japanese) was made available on Windows Update at that time. Today, we are releasing the remaining languages for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 SP2 to Windows Update.”


There are two ways that you can apply SP2 to your Vista-powered machine. You can download it and install it yourself, or you could set Windows Update to download updates automatically – this way you will be informed when Vista SP2 is available for installation.

If you do not want to install Vista SP2, here are a few reasons why you should change your mind:
- You will get faster and more relevant searches thanks to Windows Search 4.0.
- Support for the most recent Bluetooth technology via Bluetooth 2.1 Feature Pack.
- Seamlessly connect to WiFi networks thanks to Windows Connect Now (WCN).
- exFAT file system with UTC timestamp support for correct file synchronization across various time zones.
- Vista SP2 comes with a single installer for Vista and Server 2008, meaning it will be easy to manage, deploy, and support (from an IT pro point of view).

If you would like to get Vista SP2/Windows Server 2008 SP2, a download location is available here.
