Hi all,

I read that as of today there will be no updates allowed for Windows 7 without SP1 installed. Is this true and for those that have it already installed has it affected games and apps? Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Barry

I haven't seen any problems, but by the time I had a Win7 computer to put games on, SP1 was already out. Draclvr, Inland, and others would have more experience.

That is true... you must have SP1 installed. It's the same thing they did with XP when they required SP2 to continue to receive updates.

I have noted no difference at all with games or anything else from when I first installed it and after SP1 was installed.
