  Windows Vista & Server 2008 SP2 will change the version number to 6.0.6002.

  NOTE: Security updates listed here will be grouped by each year they were released.

   NOTE: It is not necessary to download & install all of the updates listed on my page.  You are not required
              to install them unless your system has suffered serious problems.  Make sure you download the
              patches for the correct operating system.  You can uninstall most system updates from your system
              if they cause more problems than they fix.

  I've made this page simply for informational purposes and to make downloading updates faster & easier.  All the updates for
  Windows Vista & Server 2008 listed here can be installed under any edition except for the 64-bit (ia64/x64) versions.
  Before installing any WinVista & WS2008 updates, be sure to activate and validate your copy of Windows Vista or Server 2008.

  Key = Windows Vista original is Windows NT 6.0 version 6.00.6000, SP - Service Pack, NT - New Technology or Network
           Windows Server 2008 is Windows NT 6.0 version 6.00.6001 [Win2008, WS2008 or WS2k8 for short]
           HB = Home Basic, HP = Home Premium, Bis. = Business, Ent. = Enterprise, Ult. = Ultimate, DX = DirectX
           IIS = Internet Information Services, FTP = FTP Service for IIS, RDP - Remote Desktop Protocol
           AKB - ActiveX Killbits
  [a little star * indicates a new system update; the <> symbol means to install a patch with caution because it may have a
   possible side effect; I am not responsible if the updates you download here do more harm than good]

Microsoft will be ending Extended Support for all editions of Windows Vista on April 11, 2017 as noted here.

Notes: Download & install these updates in ascending order [from bottom to top].  If you are paranoid about security, install
Windows Vista/Server 2008 Service Pack 2 and any post-SP2 security updates listed above.
<> Caution: Problems have been noted after installing certain Vista/WS2k8 security updates that are marked with an <> symbol.
Read the corresponding MS support articles of the affected security patches.
 
 
Windows Vista & Server 2008 Service Packs: (for all 32bit editions)

Notes: Only install the Windows Vista/Server 2008 Service Pack if a newer hotfix or a security update requires it.  See MS KB
article 947366 if you experience problems installing either Vista SP1 or SP2.  Vista SP1 & SP2 are both available at Windows
Update.  Installing Vista SP1 will change the version number from 6.0.6000.16386 to 6.0.6001.18000.  However, installing SP2
under Vista or Server 2008 will change the version number to 6.0.6002.18005.  SP2 requires WinVista SP1 & the KB955430
update installed and cannot be installed under the original release of WinVista.  Note that Win2008 already comes with the
Vista SP1 files.
<> Caution: See MS KB article 948465 on any issues with Windows Vista & Server 2008 SP2.



Other Updates & Add-ons for Windows Vista & Server 2008:
 

Notes: Since Windows Vista no longer includes the old Windows Help Viewer to view help files with the .HLP file extension,
download & install the WinHlp32.exe Help Program to restore the ability to view .HLP help files in Vista.  The KB971512 update
includes DirectX 11 library files from Win7.  The KB971512 & KB2117917 updates are needed to install IE9 under Vista &
Server 2008.
~ - These updates can be installed on both Windows Vista SP2 & Server 2008 SP2.
^ - These updates must be removed before attempting to upgrade from Vista/Server 2008 SP2 to Windows 7 or higher OSes.



Other sites to find system updates and/or info for Windows Vista & Server 2008:
 

Notes: Any downloads for Windows Vista & Server 2008 are found from its Windows Update feature.  By default, Vista/WS2008 may be setup to download and install system updates automatically while connected to the Internet.  To turn the feature off [if you're annoyed by it] open the Control Panel, select the Windows Update control panel applet, click on the Change Settings link and select the option that says "Never Check for Updates (not recommended)", then click Ok to save your settings.  Disabling the Automatic Updates feature by using that method will cause the Security Center feature to display some annoying pop-up messages that Automatic Updates was turned off, so open up Security Center, click on "Change the way Security Center alerts me" link to bring up the Alert Settings dialog box, uncheck the checbox next to Automatic Updates.  Then click OK to save changes and close the Security Center window and Security Center will no longer display popup messages that Automatic Updates was disabled.
