Can I streamline both SP1 and SP2 into a new disc, or am I SOL?

WLMessenger 2009 Beta doesn't work with SP2 RC...It doesn't load when Vista starts-up or when you dbl-clk the icon on your desktop....Grrr

I re-dld the installer and reinstalled Messenger, I vaguely remember having to do this for SP1 as well. Anyway if anyone has this prob then just re-install Messenger.

 After I installed the SP2 on my vista machine my wired connection and wireless connection do not connect to the internet. I have access to the local network just not the internet. I uninstall the SP2 and run on SP1 no problem. I get a message saying that my router is stoping the connection.  So far SP2 was a huge waste of time for me.

and again i repeat SP2 is not "released" its a "beta" so really you have no right to complain about bugs. What you should be doing is reporting them to MS so they can iron them out for the release.

Right, these beta's are specifically designed for Microsoft to help them in their development.

You should not be running a beta service pack on a computer you are using daily. Even beta operating systems are not designed for everyday use, they are designed for exclusive use for testing the features of the new operating system or service pack in a controlled environment. By controlled environment, I mean a virtual machine inside of VMware or VirtualBox.
