Anyone install WinXp Service Pack 2 yet?
Any issues or things to be aware of before installing the latest service pack?
I installed it and everything works fine. It's been 5 or 6 days now and I haven't seen a problem.
just a guy
Works for me too. No issues.

Installed it last night, no issues so far. Halo still runs, which was all I really cared about on that box anyway. :-)
I slipstreamed it and burned a new CD, reformatted, and reinstalled.
I've installed it on 4 machines so far, and three of them worked fine. The fourth one (my main work laptop) doesn't work, and I've had to back it out. Once I've installed it, I get an error in the event log about "COM+ Event System" not working when I try to bring up Component Manager. It also breaks an application I'm developing that needs COM+, so for now, I can't update.
I had to reboot it a few more times to get it to work. Now I can do things like: open acrobat, print web pages.
Absolutely no problem at all. Also surprised to hear all the complains.
Works fine. The install did take 20 minutes (not counting the download time) on a P4 1.8.
I read scuttlebutt that SP 2 creates problems for Visual Studio 6.0.... anyone?
My VC 6.0 works fine, as well as 7.1.
INstalled on Windows XP Pro running on Virtual PC. (It's a test "computer".

I've installed SP2 RC2 on XP Pro weeks ago, and SP2 final a few days ago. One obscure copy protection was broken, that's all. Everything else worked fine.
