How To Update Windows Vista Service Pack 1 to SP2 [ 2023 ]

Earlier this week, we reported that Vista Service Pack 2 was released to testers. If you can't wait for the official release, there is a way to get SP2 right away.

Nowadays, you can easily upgrade Vista SP1 to SP2 with a little trick. If you want to test Vista SP2 right away, you can follow the procedure below to download it via Windows update. So here is the step-by-step process to update your pre-Vista SP1 beta to Vista SP2.

Install Windows Vista SP2

1. Copy and paste the below code in the notepad and save it as “update.bat” anywhere in your Windows machine.

@echo off

reg delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSp2 /f > NUL 2>&1

reg delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSP2 /f > NUL 2>&1

reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSp2 /v Beta1 /t REG_SZ /d C21A5C64-2530-CC19-042F-9ABDB4ED27F9 /f

IF NOT %errorlevel% == 0 ( goto ERROR)

:SUCCESS

@echo.

echo ================================================== =========

echo Windows Vista SP2 registry keys successfully set.

echo Please check for updates on Windows Update.

echo ================================================== =========

@echo.

goto END

:ERROR

@echo.

echo ================================================== =========

echo ERROR setting the Windows Vista SP2 registry keys

echo Please run this script as Administrator (right-click, ‘Run as Administrator’).

echo ================================================== =========

@echo.

goto END

:END

pause

pause

2. Now, right-click on it and select Run as Administrator.

3. Windows should start updating now.

4. If everything goes fine, enjoy Vista SP2.

As SP2 is in the pre-beta stage, it’s a good practice to create a restore point or back up to avoid future problems.

If Windows has not started updating automatically, follow the below procedure to start the update:

1. Type Windows Update in the start menu search box and hit enter.

2. In the left pane of Windows Update, click Change Settings.

3. Select the option named “Install Updates Automatically” and click Apply to start the process.

WARNING: Create a backup of your Vista as you are going to update to pre-beta which might not be stable. Do it at your own risk!!
