Full-Kit Software Patches are included on the Software Products Library

Please be aware that some products will ship a "Full-Kit Software Patch" on the Software Products Library.  The “Full-Kit Software Patch” will be delivered either as a replacement or as an additional revision for the currently shipping software product.  These software patches have been qualified and are approved for shipment to the Software Products Library audience.  Software patches can be identified with an ECO in the Kit Type column.  Details regarding the software patch version are available in each product's cover letter.  The Full-Kit Software Patch should be handled as a maintenance release. 

HP Services Tools CD

The Services Tools CD included with the Software Products Library contains analysis, diagnosis and remote support software, for example WEBES and ISEE, for use by HP’s service engineers and HP’s Authorized Service Provider service engineers.  The software and associated documentation on this CD are for use on systems that have hardware warranty, a service contract, or service obligation. 


The Services Tools CD and associated web pages may contain new diagnosis software that is applicable to the system and should be reviewed for the most recent updates to the diagnosis tools.   

Mature Product Support Program

HP offers a Mature Product Support service for products that are functionally complete, stable, and have no new versions planned for release.   Products on the Software Products Library media will continue to be included on the quarterly distributions after they have entered the Mature Product Support Program.
