On decommissioning of update servers for 2000, XP, (and Vista?) as of July 2019

Recommended Posts

Hmm, I've been trying to build a home and pro iso with all the updates but without much success. Using the update list on the 1st post and wget, I was able to download the required updates for XP sp3 pt-pt but if I use nlite to integrate, some updates are not installed and if I use DXUPAC to create an update pack, the installer fails with missing files.

Is there any of you doing this? I rather have a ready to install ISO for old pc's than the individual updates. I'm trying to create the most clean implementation.

Also, I've also made a list of updates by installing a clean XP PRO SP3 on a virtual machine and I've noticed that windows update offers me some updates that are missing from the list. Are they superseeded?

Also, the missing link for Windows Live Essentials 2009 PT-PT is this one: https://web.archive.org/web/20120708101258/http://wl.dlservice.microsoft.com/download/C/F/2/CF23FE94-CA3E-4D99-8A1D-1DFE0263ABF8/pt-pt/wlsetup-all.exe

I've done the same as you, but in language zh-cn. You could search my previous post for nlite setting file. Did those updates not installed show messages about missing sprv****.dll (in my case, sprv0804.dll) ? English version has no such error. I found this file is actually xpsp4res.dll, and I solved it by creating fake file, since it will later be replaced by updated version. HTH.

It will be a matter of expiry date:

  • Certificate for MS Update Catalog site www.catalog.update.microsoft.com expires on August 9, 2019 (2019-08-09).
  • Certificate for Microsoft/Windows Update site www.update.microsoft.com expires on December 27, 2019 (2019-12-27).

Well, certificate for MS Update Catalog has already been updated on 12 July 2019, but the site is still available in Internet Explorer 8 via http and https. Just check the link:

https://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Home.aspx

You can still search for Windows XP/XP Embedded/POSReady 2009/WEPOS updates and download them at will.

Now we can wait to the end of the year…

It's mid August, and WU and MU are still working fine on Windows 2000 and XP-x64 over here, with no signs of it stopping any time soon (I'd imagine it would display a warning to the effect of, "Windows[Microsoft] Update will be shutting down soon" to give users some advance warning.

I'm starting to think maybe this was just some F.U.D designed to scare off the few who are still using XP.

Certainly the date for withdrawal that was first mooted turned out to be incorrect.
I'm still hoping that Microsoft Update at least will be kept online while updates to things like Office 2010, which is (supposedly) compatible with XP, and still in support, are still being rolled out.
I wouldn't bet on them putting up any warning though when it's pulled. They didn't for the Windows 98 version, one day it was just suddenly gone!
