Updating to xp sp3

A few people told me that whenever they try to install SP3 in Windows XP, Windows shows following error message: The reason behind this problem is that the update package installs retail bits on retail builds and checked bits on checked builds. In right-side pane look for a String "Current Type".

But you can spoof Windows updates in order to install retail bits on checked builds and vice versa. Double-click on it and change its value to Checked as shown in following screenshot: If the value is already set to Checked, then change it to Free and click on OK.

Just because an update is available doesn't mean it's needed or even necessary in all situations.

Hilarious, almost two years to the day (May 16 2006-May 6 2008) after Microsoft removed the solution from Knowledge Base Article 888372, the resolution is now back! I'm guessing they couldn't deal with the potential fallout of n thousand people complaining that their computers won't boot/endlessly rebooting. Microsoft regularly releases major updates to their Windows operating systems.Traditionally those updates are service packs, but more often these days, they're semi-regular and significant updates via Windows Update.In fact, in Windows 10 and Windows 8, the service pack, as we know it from previous versions of Windows, is essentially a dead idea.Much like updates on your smartphone, Microsoft is continually adding major features via automatic patching. You may have also heard that we temporarily suspended automatic distribution of Windows Vista SP1 for this - we’re now also happy to report that we’ve resumed automatic distribution of Windows Vista SP1.
