Microsoft is still on track to make a beta available later this week of what it’s referring to as “Vista Service Pack 1 Preview,” according to sources close to the company.

Microsoft is expected to provide certain testers with access to the Vista SP1 Preview beta code later this week, possibly on July 19, the day the company will announce its fiscal 2007 earnings, sources said.

A certain select few testers already have been working with earlier versions of the Vista SP1 code, sources said. This week’s beta of SP1 Preview will be opened up to more testers and will be a refresh, sources said.

On July 17, Microsoft made available to preselected testers a beta of the Windows Driver Kit (WDK) designed to coincide with the Vista SP1 Preview testers said. The refreshed WDK code is on the Microsoft Connect site for download, testers added.

Microsoft claims an error in a email led to reports that it has released a trial version of Vista Service Pack 1 when, in fact, no date has officially been confirmed for its launch.

Microsoft further clarified its position on Thursday, when it sent this statement to ZDNet.co.uk:

"There will be a Windows Vista service pack but it's too early to discuss specifics on timing. Service packs are part of the traditional software lifecycle. They're something we do for all Microsoft products as part of our commitment to continuous improvement, and providing early test builds is a standard practice that helps us incorporate customer feedback and improve the overall quality of the product. The team is working hard on the service pack, and our current expectation is that a beta will be made available sometime this year."
