    Just so the new windows users don't think this is the sp1 that is going to be available for Vista basic,premium and ultimate I thought I would post this information from the Microsoft site. It is for IT professionals not home users.

    You make a very good point and perhaps I should have made it more clear. This is not SP1 for Vista that will be made available later. Thank you for writing.

    What can we use it for? What's its purpose?

    Yeah, I have seen WAIK mention a lot, especially for creating VistaPE boot CD.

    I used WAIK myself for this task. However, what else is WAIK used for? What is its purpose? For developers and programmers?

    Perhaps I have posted this in the wrong place. Once again I stress that this is not service pack 1 for Vista. Rumor has it that will be available in March but that’s up to Microsoft. There are many folks that visit this site that are familiar with the AIK.

    Read the link, if it’s not clear as to what is going on then please ignore this posting. This is a creative application that is not intended for the ‘average home user’ but rather for IT professionals as previously mentioned.

    Sorry for any confusion by my posting.
