On the Windows Vista Team Blog, Chris Flores on behalf of Microsoft wrote: “Starting today, users will be able to choose to manually install Windows Vista SP1 via Windows Update or download the standalone installer from the Microsoft Download Center (x86 and x64) for any of the 36 supported languages.”

Flores further continued that TechNet Plus and MSDn subscribers can go ahead and download DVD images of Windows Vista with SP1 in a few languages as of April 15. Over the next few weeks time, the rest of the languages will become available in 2 groups.

The blog also mentions that Vista SP1 will bring some great enhancements to systems operating Windows Vista, particularly in the areas of security, reliability, and performance.

When Computer World got in touch with a company spokes, detailing a date for an automatic update, the spokes said, “We want to ensure customers have the best possible experience with Windows Vista, including installing SP1; this has always been our priority. Until SP1 is automatically distributed via Windows Update, consumers are able to download SP1 manually using Windows Update.”

From this, we can conclude that users need to wait for sometime more for an automatic download, hoping for a near future date.

Meanwhile, the installer has also been updated to support all 36 languages, and is available in 32-bit and 64-bit editions.
