so the windows update website is working now? that will be so much better for downloading updates without having to manually install every update one at a time now-legacyfan

The Windows Update website works again like on the first day. Check out these pages.

Hello,everybody! Now I'm setting a fresh installed Windows Server 2003 VM. I have already installed IE 8 and use the proxy can access the site. But when I search for updates,it returns me 0x80072f78(Firewall disabled,WU site). I also find that some updates on the guide can't be installed. How can I make it work? Do I need some other updates?

Thank you for the post.But I have already "installed" it. Some updates can't be installed after I apply PosReady.reg.(Maybe Windows Server 2003 doesn't support these updates?)(KB4467770, KB4019276, KB4493435)

I have never used Windows Server 2003, but in the archive Restore_WU_XP.7z, there are updates for both OSs, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. Try to install the failing updates manually!

If it doesn't work for you, try the method Legacy Update alternatively! Link

I still can't access the site. Howerver,I will try Legacy Update instead. Thank you! :thumbup

Read my guide for Xp x64 edition and for Server 2003. My guide for Xp x64 and Server 2003 @AstroSkipper does not have in his guide. The problem is that ProxhttpsProxy v1.5 does not run properly on Xp x64 and Server 2003, so v1.3 must be used!

Now I can visit the site.But it searched for the updates for a long time.:huh:Is that normal? (At first I used Windows Update and it searched for about two hours? and then installed KB938759) Howerver,I'm going to sleep and try to search updates through Microsoft Update tomorrow.:realmad:

Hello everybody! After I installed nearly all the updates of Windows Server 2003(including R2&.Net 2.0 SP1)(A Update Pack made by others online),the MU worked! I think it's not a good idea to leave so much updates for MU&WU.:buehehe::cheerleader:   PS:This post may help the people who have a fresh installed Windows XP&2K3(Also for myself!):D
