    I just ran MBSA v1.2 on my Athlon64 based system with the Final version of SP2, which was made available for download to the beta users. I did not receive any notification that a later version was required or available.

    MBSA was able to run and issued the expected report. After downloading and installing v1.2.1, I got the same expected report.
