Windows 7: 7057 upgrade question.

7057 upgrade question.

Are branch builds of RC1 capable of using windows update to bring it up to the later RC builds? or will it be like the beta's and require a fresh install or upgrade?

I ask, because if 7057 is a RC branch build, then it would be convenient if I could just use windows update the rest of the time until the full version is released.

Thanks

Hello Safetybar,

Unfortunately, you will have to do a fresh or upgrade install to go to the newer 7057 build.

I would recommend doing a clean fresh reinstall though to avoid any potential problems.

Thanks for the response, I was actually inquiring as to "windows updates" for future RC builds. If 7057 is a true RC, I was wondering if the following RC builds would be available via windows update, rather than another install.

No, they will not be available through Windows Updates. Only through reinstalls.

Seriously! Why is anyone running an RC build right now? If you know you want it...buy it. If you are still not sure, or still testing, why not test using the RTM code? Get your free download and give that a shot.
