  2. About Service Pack

    A service pack (in short SP) is a collection of updates, fixes and/or enhancements to a software program delivered in the form of a single installable package. Many companies, such as Microsoft or Autodesk, typically release a service pack when the number of individual patches to a given program reaches a certain (arbitrary) limit. Installing a service pack is easier and less error-prone than installing a high number of patches individually, even more so when updating multiple computers over a network.

    Service packs are usually numbered, and thus shortly referred to as SP1, SP2, etc.. It is notable however that they may bring, besides bug fixes, entirely new features, as is the case of SP2 of Windows XP.
