Microsoft! You've Got Broken VS2008 SP1 Download Links

Well, MS Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 was released on 08/11/2008, which was seven months ago. I was surprised that my VS2008 hasn’t been updated to the SP1. It should be updated automatically because I have the "real" product key served from MS itself.

However, it still remains as non-SP1 version. So, I had to visit the web site to manually update my VS2008.

Wow~ it’s amazing! Both installer version (.exe format) and ISO image version cannot be downloaded from the web site because they don’t exist any longer (404 error).

How come does it happen? I don’t believe it. Hey, Microsoft!! Please restore the downloadable links!!

  1. That’s interesting. When I reboot my PC, the download links worked perfectly well. :$
