    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.
    If my assumption is correct, you are looking for which file to download service pack update.
    Worry not choose files. Download the .iso to the update file, either burn it or mount or extract it and install. These files are called the symbol files. They differ in the language, for example. frequency refers to the French version. They are used to debug the Service Pack and are not really necessary unless you start to run into problems and try to find solutions on your own.

  • What is the difference between Windows 7 OEM and the retail version of Windows 7?

    Can someone tell me, what is the difference between windows 7 OEM and sales vs retail?

    There is no difference in the product itself.

    Although if you get a generic OEM full version, it contains the
    even software, it has the following disadvantages compared to the
    commercial version:

    1. the biggest drawback of an OEM version (at least in the USA) is
    that its license it permanently binds to the first computer, it is
    installed on. He can never legally be moved to another computer, sold,
    or given (except with the original computer). If the computer
    dies or is stolen, your license dies with him.

    2. he can't do a clean install, not an upgrade.

    3 Microsoft offers no support for OEM versions. You cannot call their
    with a problem, but rather to secure the necessary support of your
    OEM; who take in charge may go anywhere between property and non-existent. Or
    You can get support elsewhere, like in these forums.

    What is the difference between windows 7 pro debug/checked and simple windows 7 pro? /

    Regular accumulation is the regular version at retail of Windows because most of us use (SP1 or not).

    The build Debug/Check is specifically aimed at developers who developed to make it easier for the debugging flag
    drivers to be developed. This build runs much slower due to the abduction of optimizations and other functions.

  • What is the difference between Windows Mail and Windows Live Mail?

    Separated from this thread.

    I realize that starting from 7/11, Windows Live is more effective on my Windows Vista system.  I understand that and I have since beengetting my Hotmail acc't workingusing only Windows Live Mail.  This am, I tried to create a new account hotmail for my friend, but we couldn't get it to accept and just stopped trying.  Now, today, I can not send any e-mail because "you cannot configure Windows Mail to use a web (HTTP) that is running Windows Vista based."  WHA?  I managed somehow to get into Windows Live when I tried to get a new account hotmail for my friend?  Also, I also receive a message from the Assistant on "you want to want to leave, you have not created your new account?  (probably not the exact wording).  In response, I clicked Yes and no, and still I can't get out of this Windows Live.  I would like to purge my system of this needless to Windows Live and only use Windows Live Mail.  Can someone help me to do this?  (My knowledge of couputer is at a basic level, so hopefully it won't be too difficult to understand.)  Thank you!!!

    (With the HTTP mess), it seems Windows Mail and Windows LIVE Mail are two very different things.

    I am not a technician, but try to stay up-to-date. I have known that Vista sucks because it came out, but it surprised me, never have used before today. So I wonder...  Windows LIVE Mail can be installed on a Vista unit, and if so he would remove the format HTTP bug? It's all THE Microsoft, after all! On my PC with Windows 7 HP with complete Essentials, including Live Mail (for PC, to avoid confusion with the version online), I have not had any problems to Hotmail at work, send or receive. GMail also, no problem, the only thing I did NOT like about Live Mail is that it doesn't have the handy function "Sweep" that I love, I just go online to own things very quickly. With only Windows Mail (which I assume is supplied with Vista), it won't let me even try to set-up Hotmail/Outlook account. It's stupid, because like I said it's all EM!

    peace ~

    Windows Mail is the e-mail that comes with client program and a part of Windows Vista. Windows Live Mail is a program available for free download; It is an e-mail client, the timing, the Manager contacts, aggregator and newsreader at a single feeding program.

    Until a few years ago, it was possible to synchronize the Hotmail accounts with e-mail clients on Windows XP and Vista (Outlook Express and Windows Mail respectively) using WebDAV over HTTP protocol. This method has been deprecated after a long sequence of initialization in September 2009. Before that date, POP3 access has been made available for all Hotmail accounts. At any time it was not possible to access Hotmail email clients accounts. There is no bug involved here, nor in HTTP format or anything else.

    Windows Live Mail is built to use a different former WebDAV protocol; DeltaSync protocol allows the synchronization of e-mail folders, contacts, and calendars between client and server.

    You may be able to download the installer for Windows Live Mail 2011 of this page: How to install Windows Essentials while offline? Do not try to include Windows Live Writer or Messenger in the installation; None of them will work and you can gum up toward the top of the entire installation Essentials if you do. It may be better to stick to one mail at first. Windows Live Mail 2011 is the latest version which runs on Vista.
