At v10, it was nice that you could roll back individual Service Packs.

enter image description here

Ive just rolled forward to 10.1 SP1 on my dev machine (not a fresh install), but it would appear this option is not available at 10.1.

Anyone know of a way to roll back the Service Pack without having to do a re-install?

EDIT - As an Esri distributor employee I have an pre-release of SP1, and I assumed it was the same final version that would be made available to clients.

I would like to suggest leaving this Q open until the final release is made available, and I will re-test and either edit my Q accordingly, or vote to close the Q off if its not an issue anymore. Apologies if I have caused any confusion. I can say that there is some nice new stuff to play with in this SP :)

Has 10.1 SP1 been made available yet? – PolyGeo Oct 29 '12 at 3:01
I have to second @polygeo. It doesn't look like SP1 for 10.1 has been released officially yet. I can't imagine this is functionality they would remove. I could believe it is something they wait to add until right before release. – Get Spatial Oct 29 '12 at 3:52
This Service Pack is due in the next two days.… – Mapperz Oct 29 '12 at 13:41
The Desktop, Engine, Server, and ArcSDE service pack 1 for 10.1 are now available: – mkennedy Oct 30 '12 at 19:27
With 10.1 SP1, Desktop SP1 = msp (patch) and Server SP1 = msi (full installer). I dont know 100% if that means you cant roll back, but I'd guess thats the case for SERVER. See the install notes here:… In short, with SP1, Desktop IS different than Server in terms of how you install the SP – KHibma Oct 31 '12 at 20:37

I don't think I can say that this is the 'official' 10.1 SP1 install because it hasn't been released yet. It is what I've been certifying my area of the software with.

Agreed with @mkennedy - this option is available, but 10.1 SP1 has not been released yet. (ya I'm an Esri employee) – KHibma Oct 29 '12 at 18:04
Thanks for this, great to see Esri chipping in on here. Might well be the SP I have will differ to final release. See my edited Q. – Simon Oct 30 '12 at 1:01
