    If it only affects Dynamics Retail Management System (RMS) surely it shouldn't cause problems for those who don't use it?
    I didn't understand this either, Just release a patch for that product instead of delaying the Service Pack. This is exactly what MS would have said to any 3rd party company who's products aren't compatible with SP3.

    They are altering the SP3 installer so that if it detects that Dynamics RMS is present on the machine, it wont install. Developing this is what has caused the delay.

    I finally got round to installing XP SP3 on my home PC and the process was very smooth. No problems so far.

    I only had to install IE7, MP11 and .NET Framework 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0 and patching was complete Well done Microsoft!

    If you think that's smooth, you really need to try ubuntu. Last night I upgraded to the latest version - by clicking the 'new version is available' button it automatically upgraded the operating system to 8.04. It didn't stop there - it upgraded all my applications as well MS really have a long way to go.....

    As much as I love the feature the upgrade OS feature has a habit of going spectacularly wrong though. If MS had the same failure rate it would kill millions of PC's on a scale that would put Vista SP1 to shame. My upgrade keeps crashing half way through luckly my 6.06 install seems to survive.


    If you had installed .NET 3.5 that should of delt with 2.0 and 3.0 as well shouldn't it?

    I grabbed it from Technet last week.

    I found it slowed my laptop down on a fresh build, compared with SP2 with no real software installed.

    However, after a rebuild it seems to be the same on performance. We probably won't roll this out for a few months in case anything pops up that MS didn't anticipate, e.g. like the Dynamics incompatibility.

    Yep as it's pretty much a collection of patches with a couple of new features i'll only be deploying it to new builds for the foreseeable.

    So it looks like it was released today. I run Windows Update and it shows up like Service Pack 2 for Windows XP used to show up, with a page that comes up saying SP3 is available and it's highly recommended to download that first [or continue to other updates].

    However it appears that the link doesn't exist. Windows update can't get the file, and the Microsoft Download Center can't get the file. Maybe it will work if I share the direct link with all of you?

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/i...P3-x86-ENU.exe

    Together, with enough power, we can make that link active!!!!!!!1111111oneoneone[no we can't]oneoneoneoneone

    EDIT: It works as of now [2:58 PM PST]

    Our WSUS servers have synced SP3 now too.

    Nothing's died on my home laptop after installing it, so far at least!
