Windows 7 SP1 – System Update Readiness Tool

Been waiting it out a bit to apply the SP1 update to my systems. Let’s see what issues come up and how to resolve them first, eh?

If you’re unable to apply the Service Pack 1 update to Windows 7, consider downloading and running this utility. Choose the version that applies to your installation:

According to a Microsoft support document published just a few days ago:

This tool is being offered because an inconsistency was found in the Windows servicing store which may prevent the successful installation of future updates, service packs, and software. This tool checks your computer for such inconsistencies and tries to resolve issues if found.

Appreciate that Microsoft, certain we’ll be needing that.

Thanks go to Ed Bott!

    Updated all machines to SP1. It’s the usual “wait for it”, service pack update, just like XP’s SP3. Takes about an hour. Keep in mind that my systems are always kept up to date, so I’m wondering why SP1 took that long.
