Testers get first Windows 7 SP1 beta build

Windows 7 logoAfter sending out invites to test Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 last week, Microsoft has given its beta testers their first build of SP1. The build number is 7601.16562.100603-1800, meaning it was compiled on June 3, 2010 at 6pm, according to the German enthusiast website WinFuture. The last build that we got wind of leaked in May, and was compiled on April 21, 2010. Broader testing of SP1 should begin later next month.

This particular build, which weighs in at 1.22GB, is available in English, German, Japanese, French, and Spanish. The public SP1 beta will also likely arrive in these five languages, according to to SP1 documentation that we discovered. The Windows 7 section on Microsoft.com's Help & How-to website has a webpage titled Why am I receiving a message that "Windows has detected unsupported languages files" when installing SP1 Beta for Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2? which confirms it. Three more newly posted articles further talk about SP1 beta: Troubleshoot problems installing a service pack for Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, Why am I receiving a message about Microsoft Security Essentials or Microsoft Forefront Client Security when installing a service pack?, and Strategies for freeing disk space.

Microsoft began talking about SP1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 three months ago, though the company still isn't ready to talk about its release timeline for the service pack. As with previous service packs, SP1 will package together hotfixes already delivered through Windows Update.

For Windows Server 2008 R2, SP1 will include two new features that directly affect Microsoft's desktop virtualization platform: Microsoft Dynamic Memory and Microsoft RemoteFX. For Windows 7, SP1 will also feature an updated Remote Desktop client that takes advantage of RemoteFX introduced Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.
