I recently reinstalled Vista from some recovery discs I bought. Vista Home SP1.
I was able to install the 98 updates ok but for 2, I will deal with that later Maybe.
Vista comes with IE7 and the IE 9 update from within Vista is 64bit no other option available. It will not install on a 32bit system.
I thought no problem I will go to Microsoft well Microsoft itself will not allow a connection from IE7.
So I went there thru 10 and those pages do not exist for me anymore. No stuff available for older OS's anymore.
Vista I believe is still supported but Microsoft seems to have jumped the gun a little.
I know there are those that will site legal reason why this can't be but come on. A company as big as Microsoft is really worried about a fine! They probably spend a million dollars a year just on toilet paper corporation wide.
