As of August 2020, Windows 2000, XP and Vista are no longer downloadable via Windows Update. How? Windows Update's servers have used SHA-1 and SHA-2 for a while now. As of August 2020, Microsoft has transitioned from SHA-1 to SHA-2 completely, removing SHA-1 support (which 2000, XP, and Vista need). Why? Security reasons. SHA-1 is more vulnerable to security risks. As an alternative to Windows Update, you will need to use this Update Repository: You can also use Server 2008 updates, which you can find here: https://mega.nz/folder/txxRyLzC#1vBMGzMHiL864f3b
Now that the Download link in the vLite forum leads to NTLite and that NTLite says Vista is not supported (but might work), iis there any official position on this? Shall I just try or are there known problems? Or is the suppression of the vLite download a mistake (nobody seems to have noticed over there)? Thanks.
