So What Happens When XP Support Ends?

Discussions, problem solving, and tips and trick for operating systems go here. Windows, Mac, and Linux are ok. If you want to fight or put down an OS go to The Hundred Year War Forum. It will not be tolerated here. Make sure to post what OS is being discussed in the title of your post.

I think there's a program that will download all the windows updates for offline use so you can install them without internet access. Let's see if I can find it back...

Avoid third-party sources for OS updates.. they may be tainted!
You can DL an image of SP3 separately, for XP, directly from Microsoft®.
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... x?id=25129
Here is a link to Microsoft® concerning all the "fixes" in SP 3.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946480
Will be looking for a list of other update "fixes" that came separately. Possibly, like with Win 98SE, MS will post a DL source for all patches.

The MS app is wsus, but it won't run on a desktop OS. Has to be a server.

www.wsusoffline.net, OTOH, is made for desktops ...but don't dawdle.

I also got two updates for my XP installs. One was the 'malicious software' removal tool (KB890830). You will still get that update, and only that one, for several months more. If not, then DL it directly from MS..
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... tails.aspx
For servers and POS/ACH systems still using Win XP installs, they are excepted and will continue to get certain updates for security. But not for much longer.
This is a listing of security updates for Windows versions from Win 8.1 back to Win XP and Servers.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/894199
If it comes to the point of needing to reinstall Win XP freshly, you can go to the MS update site and DL most of the patches.. they will not be automatic.

That will save the internet connection here from getting clogged until they setup a full wsus server. Works really well combined with psexec I have to say. Just remember to put in the credentials in the net use <driveletter>: line for your batch file...

wsusoffline doesn't seem to get all of the available updates. I've run it until it didn't download anything more, then ran it twice more (confirming nothing else was down-loadable), then used it to patch a fresh install of XP. Typical M$ patching process, certain patches have to be applied in order, so you have to execute it repeatedly until it doesn't apply any more patches. Then I went to Windoze online update in IE8, and it still downloaded eight or nine "critical" updates and a dozen or so optional ones.

But it got on the order of 130 of them, which saves A LOT time and bandwidth, each time I do another XP install.

oh. I have an SP3 install here that does 163 patches in the first round and no more than that if repeated. what commandline options/checkmarks are you using (GUI or the DoUpdate.cmd method)?

I've only used the GUI. Which is strange, considering me. I should RTFM and use command line, huh?

Do you really want an answer from me on that? :lol:

from the cmd folder:
DoUpdate /nobackup /updatercerts /updatedx /updatewmp /updatetsc /autoreboot

keep in mind this thing only installs critical updates, any optional updates will still be installed after that if you choose to do so.
