Installing Service Pack 1 on Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2


With the release of Service Pack 1 for Windows Server 2008 R2 a number of you have asked about Service Pack 1 for the standalone Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2, and whether the new capabilities of Dynamic Memory and RemoteFX will be available for it. Absolutely, both Dynamic Memory and RemoteFX have been developed for Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 as well.

In order to get these capabilities for the Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2, you will need to install Service Pack 1 on Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2. Note that the first wave of the Service pack installer is only in 5 languages (English, French, German, Japanese and Spanish), so if you try and apply the package to Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 (which has 11 language packs installed by default) you will rightly see the following screen

It’s pretty simple to uninstall these language packs to thereafter install the Service pack. In order to uninstall the language packs, there is nifty utility included (lpksetup.exe). Launch this from an administrator’s command prompt and select “Uninstall display languages”.
