Re: R2 vs SP2
That worked! I'm a bit surprised, because I saw a bunch of updates that apparently disappeared after uninstall the beta, but I figured that the RTM would contain them itself...but as usual, I was wrong. I now have SP2 installed, thanks.
The problem now with WS2K8 is that when the beta uninstalled, it apparently broke the player for my TV tuner, because when it starts it pops a series of errors about DShowHelper, and access denied dialogs, and my cable connection isn't available in the player's configuration, even though I just installed the update to the program, that works perfectly on W7. I guess that I will just have to do some more fiddling, but at least I'm ahead of where I was.
