Starting December 12th, the Windows Server 2003 SP2 RC build (build 2825) will be made available via Windows Update. This is primarily to test delivery of update build packages via WU. We would like as many Technical Beta participants as possible to try installing the RC build this way. To try this out, prepare a Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 machine, then download and run the registry key file located at http://connect.microsoft.com/Downloads/Dow...DownloadID=4711.

The following key values will be set in the registry under

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoft Windows:

[CurrentVersionWindowsUpdateWS03SP2beta]

[CurrentVersionWindowsUpdateWS03SP2beta21124ad5-c8a4-4e4f-ac2d-95a6cb8fa72b]

Adding these values will enable users to see the RC via WU. There is no code difference between the update RC build delivered via WU, and the standalone update RC build previously made available on the Connect site.
