Today we are releasing the Release Candidate (RC) of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) to the public. This RC signals the last public beta build to be released prior to the Release to Manufacturing (RTM) final release. As previously announced, the only new features added to the SP1 are the Windows Server 2008 R2-related virtualization technologies, Dynamic Memory and RemoteFX – please see the Windows Server Division Weblog for more details. These features will help customers who choose to deploy Windows through Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) by enabling a more scalable and rich user experience.
While Windows 7 SP1 will enable PCs to take advantage of these server-based features to provide a more scalable and richer VDI experience for end users, there are no additional new features specific to Windows 7.
You can download the RC of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 by clicking here.
Download link leads to SP1 beta page??
I notice it takes longer to install than the previous beta, about 2 hours on a RTM Production system last updated in June.
@ pradeepviswav - the page has been updated to reflect the RC. If you're not seeing it, clear your browser history.
What languages are available in SP1 RC?
The same languages as the original SP1. English, French, German, Japanese and Spanish.
Any chance this allows Aero on RemoteApps? I've read a bit about RemoteFX, but while it allows for hope, there's no clear info.
Why? Because Windows Home Server 2 (Vail) looks absolutely displaced when on the new console, thanks for not having aero on any window.
Yes, this really bothers me. The new Home Server is about better integration. Not having Aero Glass is not having a good integration, imho.
@RonV Unbelievable! Just installed SP1 RC on localized Windows 7 Professional x64 Russian RTM.

Brandon, please can you clear up the SP1 debacle that's going on out there? Has your team changed tact and is now RTM'ing but keeping it secret. You very kindly blogged for us when previous Service Packs were RTM'd. I was relying on that happening with Windows 7 SP1. This 'leak' on the Russian MS site has been taken as canon despite the refutal which later appeared. People are accusing MS of covering this up. I just can't understand why you guys would be hiding SP1's RTM status. It's not like piracy is a concern. Plus, if it's RTM why is it taking so long to arrive on MSDN/TechNet? Please just give us a little clarification comment? If it has yet to go RTM please state that and give us an announcement here when it does. We need you! Thanks.
