Email sent to testers:

Windows Serviceability is pleased to announce the release of RC Refresh 1 (build 2845) of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 for Windows Server 2003.

This build contains:

  • Roll up of hotfixes released to date
  • Roll up of security updates released to date
  • Fixes for bugs reported by Beta customers and other known issues on previous Service Pack 2 builds

This build should be only be used for test purposes. We will review all reported issues in the next build. In order to have a stable test environment we strongly recommend un-installation of any previous SP2 builds from your machines before installing build 2845. If you previously installed an integrated build of SP2, you cannot upgrade your system to build 2845 with this refresh; you will need to re-install a released version (RTM, SP1, or R2) of Windows Server 2003 before upgrading to build 2845. Go to to find an evaluation copy of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1.

  • x64 standalone update: English and Japanese
  • Itanium standalone update: English and German. Japanese will release soon

Once more, thank you for your participation to SP2 Beta program.
