Windows Vista Service Pack 2: Microsoft releases list of incompatible software
Some days ago Microsoft confirmed that Service Pack 2 for windows Vista is final and will be offered for download soon. Now the company published a list of programs that are not working correctly with Vista SP2.
As it has already been the case when Service Pack 1 for windows Vista has been released, there are programs that will not work correctly when Vista is updated with Service Pack 2. According to Microsoft's Help and Support Center programs like the popular antivirus software Avira Antivir 8 or the Spyware Doctor 5.5.0.x are affected.
Normally the companies of the affected programs will have been informed already so they can adjust their tools. Some of the programs are available in newer versions like Avira Antivir 9 which is said to be fully compatible to Windows Vista Service Pack 2.
The new Service Pack for Vista is supposed to be introduced during the TechEd 2009 which takes place between May 11 and May 15, 2009. For the installation of Service Pack 2 Windows Vista has to be prepared.
