Just wondering.

Why is there a difference between the date and size of this sp3, as posted by jhmac77, digital signatures of march 20th - 331,774,504 bytes, and the one from windows download site as posted by IcemanND, digital signatures of February 12 - 330,554,920. I'm so confused. Which to choose.

Thanks in advance for any insight.

No it's not the RTM, I suspect we'll see at least 1 more build as this version added some things that weren't in there before and might need further testing & fixing. Considering this will be the last SP that XP ever gets, it's a good thing they're making sure it's perfect, but I'm just an anxious as you are (this SP is 1.5yrs late according to MS's original plans).

I was wondering the same thing, i thought it was a service pack, not a rollup package :blink:

yeah Integration works fine with an RTM XP, but if you want to install the Sp3 on a running system you must have at least Sp1 installed

we'll most likely see the XP SP3 RTM release later this April. probably the 3rd or 4th week of April.

what MS said there is wrong. ALL service packs for WinXP ARE cumulative.

thanks for the link to build 5508, jhmac77.

I don't think so. 5508 isn't going to be the RTM release.

Regarding HDA support and XP SP3: I've recently checked the XP SP3 RC2 refresh build 5508 download and it only contains the hdaudbus.inf and hdaudbus.sys files. The hdaprop.dll, hdashcut.exe, hdaudio.inf, hdaudio.sys and hdaudres.dll files are not there. So right now XP SP3 RC2 refresh only contains partial HDA support, not full support.

hopefully MS will add the missing HDA files onto the final release of XP SP3.
