We can't get Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1.

Recommended Posts

IE6SP1 links were lost last week. :realmad:

fx) http://download.microsoft.com/download/ie6sp1/finrel/6_sp1/W98NT42KMeXP/EN-US/ie6setup.exe.

We must salvage these files. :yes:


This is a package which contain Internet Explorer 6 SP1 and Outlook Express 6 for Windows 2000/XP in Italian.


This is the full package of IE6


This is the package of IE 6 SP1 for Windows 98 in Italian.

Useless - the remaining software (links inside the downloads) is gone, AFAIK. You can, of course, try it. The reason "gone"? It's "supplied" in XP and support for Win9x/ME/2K (the only ones needing the "update") has long been dropped. Even the IEAK6 no longer works. I could provide maybe the direct links to the cabs/files but AFAICR, they result in "not found".

IE6SITES.DAT points to the files.

I have the last full set, correctly dated, of IE6SP1. Not sure if I would be allowed to upload "somewhere"... I do, however have a Website on my own PC - Private access, of course. ;)

It would be very nice if you provided the direct links because you should be still able to download them through the Wayback Machine :) Are your links different than the ones listed by bristols?

By the way, the CABs were not only for 9x/ME/2K but also for XP Gold (which is not supported any more though).

Hmmm... nope! The "basic" address should be the same (for English). Need a complete list of files?

Therefore, the names of several may be different between languages as well as actual contents. Worse, using the German (DE) download address does NOT provide anything except IE6SETUP.EXE and (another EXE - didn't catch that name while "fiddling") :( , so the best bet for any given language is to search on the "language different" names, e.g. "scriptde.cab".

They are removing older files. IE6 is not the only one. Several other Win2k updates are lost too. Everyone who still needs them should download the files and keep them safely on their HDD :ph34r:

Don't you mean to store them on several different media types, just to be sure you can get them later. I personally put things like this on more than one HDD and then burn more than one CD/DVD. Then if I'm really paranoid, take and put copies in the safe deposit box at the bank. :ph34r:

I also store files on at least two HDDs. One of them is used specifically for backups. I just meant to download them as fast as possible because no one knows when they are gone.

I'm going to host all Windows 2000 related updates in one place later so they will be accessible even if M$ removes them from their servers.

I'm worried that I may not be able to download everything before it becomes unavailable. Time is running out...

Edit: At the moment the most important update which is gone is Win2k Update Rollup 1 :angrym:

Do a search for Windows2000-KB891861-v2-x86-ENU.EXE on Google to see if you can download it from other sites. If you do, you'll get this http://icst.fcu.edu.tw/download/ServicePack/Windows2000-KB891861-v2-x86-ENU.EXE

If you still want to install Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1, you will have to use the Internet Archive Wayback Machine and copy the link above into the Wayback Machine search bar. The end result is this: http://wayback.archive.org/web/*/http://download.microsoft.com/download/ie6sp1/finrel/6_sp1/W98NT42KMeXP/EN-US/ie6setup.exe

The files that I linked to are in US English. :)

Microsoft has been phasing out support for older browsers, including Internet Explorer 7 which recently had its Mainstream Support retired along with Windows Vista and Office 2007 earlier this year. I don't know if the Windows Update even works on Internet Explorer 6 on Windows 2000, older versions of Windows XP or the original release of Windows Server 2003. If it still does, then Windows Update will most likely not work 100% correctly.

Internet Explorer 8 and Internet Explorer 9 will only be fully supported until 13 January 2015 when Windows 7 leaves Mainstream Support. I suspect that by the time Windows Server 2003 is out of support in July 2015, the Windows Update website maybe decommissioned completely.

I'm hoping that someone will provide instructions on how to install Windows 2000 as installing it from scratch can become a serious limitation. After the installation, I will see if Windows Update still works or not. I still have it on one of my USB hard drives, btw.

The biggest headache is finding the removed updates in all languages (25 files for each update) :ph34r: If someone would like to help me download the remaining updates so that we'll have a backup copy of them on a different server please send me a PM.

Oh, goody! "HotFix By Request"... :(

This appears to be a massive effort. Good luck! All I have is all of the English from WUD.ULZ and AutoPatcher (and I see NO "By Request" since usually sent in an email).

Hmmm... found this - has some QFE's.

edit - above search for RollUp gave a sub-directory in first hit.
