Windows Defender 1.1.1593

Recommended Posts

I know, there is bunch of threads about it, silent installers for n-lite etc, and I have Windows Defender incorporated on my W2K installation disc too, but I couldn't find any "standard" modified installer for use with already existing, already installed on a computer W2K.

So I fired up orca again, modified **** stupid microsoft installer to allow installation on Windows 2000, and for my own sake and those who may need it too I am posting it here (when I'm not home and working on somebody's machine msfn is usually my primary source of software or links).


Minimum system requirements for Windows Defender:

* Personal computer with an Intel Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) or higher processor; Pentium III recommended.

* OS: Windows 2000 SP4, XP SP1 or later, 2003 SP1 or later, Vista.

* 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (minimum); 128 MB RAM (recommended).

* 20 MB of available hard disk space.

* Internet Explorer 6.0 or later.

* Internet access with at least a 28.8 Kbps connection.

* Windows Installer version 3.1 or higher.

>> Windows Installer 3.1 v2 (3.1.4000.2435) HERE <<<

(not needed/already included in Windows 2003 SP1 and Windows Vista)

(and no, this is not old beta Defender, this is latest Windows Defender version from Microsoft)

System requirements from Microsoft page are only valid for the official/unpatched Windows Defender, and according to their misleading information it won't run on Windows 2000 or XP SP1... that's why I didn't quote or link to it.

I have not tested it, but I'm almost sure patched Defender can be installed and run on Windows XP SP1 as well.

The most important is existence of Windows Installer 3.1 on the system, that's all.


I have modified initial post.
