Windows Service Packs

  Gary Wood 20:10 26 Jan 2006

Can anyone tell me if Windows service packs cumulative (i.e. if I have an instalation of XP Pro without any service packs do I need to install SP1 and then SP2, or will SP2 instalation include SP1)?

Thanks in advance,

SP2 will include 1, you just need to do Windows Updates from that point.

SP2 will include all the patches from SP1 and before, however SP2 contains new features that won't be installed on your machine if you don't apply the service pack and just do the updates e.g. the security centre
