Hi Guys ,


News is traveling fast about the availability of Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2, as it is already available on TechNet ,  MSDN and MVLS site .


However it is NOT certified and therefore NOT SUPPORTED for Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 R2 or R3 yet by the Product Group. If you already use it in production , don’t expect Premier Support to help you .

Certification and support statements will take official 90 days after Release To Web ! However , if it is sooner , I will let you know .


Now my personal experiences :


In our Lab environment everything works OK along with FEP 2010 client, even in our Acceptance Production environment where 500 clients are sitting , but we aren’t moving unless we have an official support statement !


Hope it Helps
