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

How exactly are you testing for superseedence and which update is actually required?

This list of updates I took from the set of updates, which is one person since the release of SP3. Therefore, there are many non-public and specific updates in it, most of which are not very important, but some, for example, KB955704 - exFAT, or KB932716 - imapi v2 are quite important. The problem is that this set of updates is only for the Russian language. Now I have made a list of updates, after the installation of which Windows Update does not offer anything. I tested these updates on the Russian, English and Japanese versions of XP SP3 Pro. A total of 221 updates for each language, plus multilingual.

KB898461 KB909520-v1.000 KB923789 KB943729 KB941569 KB946648 KB950762 KB950974 KB951376-v2 KB951618-v2 KB951978 KB952004 KB952287 KB952954 KB953155 KB955704 KB956572 KB956844 KB960859 KB961503 KB968389 KB969084 KB970430 KB971029 KB971513 KB971657 KB973507 KB973815 KB973869 KB973904 KB974112 KB974318 KB974571 KB975025 KB975254 KB975467 KB975560 KB976323 KB977816 KB977914 KB978338 KB978542 KB978706 KB979309 KB981997 KB982665 KB2115168 KB2124261 KB2290570 KB2296011 KB2345886 KB2347290 KB2387149 KB2419632 KB2423089 KB2443105 KB2479943 KB2483185 KB2485663 KB2491683 KB2492386 KB2506212 KB2544893-v2 KB2564958 KB2566454 KB2570947 KB2584146 KB2598479 KB2603381 KB2619339 KB2620712 KB2631813 KB2659262 KB2661637 KB2686509 KB2698365 KB2705219-v2 KB2723135-v2 KB2727528 KB2749655 KB2770660 KB2780091 KB2801109 KB2807986 KB2808679 KB2813347-v2 KB2820917 KB2834886 KB2862152 KB2862330 KB2862335 KB2864063 KB2868038 KB2868626 KB2884256 KB2893294 KB2900986 KB2914368 KB2926765 KB2933528 KB2957503 KB2991963 KB2993254 KB2998579 KB3004361 KB3013126 KB3020393-v2 KB3021674 KB3029944 KB3033889 KB3035132 KB3065979 KB3078601 KB3109560 KB3121918 KB3124624 KB3126587 KB3139398 KB3139914 KB3140709 KB3145739 KB3149090 KB3161561 KB3161949 KB3170455 KB3178034 KB3183431 KB3185911 KB3196718 KB3197835 KB4012583 KB4012584 KB4014652 KB4014794 KB4015383 KB4019276 KB4022747 KB4024323 KB4025218 KB4025398 KB4025409 KB4025497 KB4034775 KB4039384 KB4047211 KB4052303 KB4056564-v2 KB4056941 KB4089082 KB4089175 KB4089453-v2 KB4089694 KB KB4091756 KB4101477 KB4130957 KB4291391 KB4339291 KB4343674 KB4457163 KB4458000 KB4458001 KB4458318 KB4459091 KB4462935 KB4462987 KB4463103 KB4467689 KB4467770 KB4470118 KB4473077 KB4486463 KB4486465 KB4486468 KB4486536 KB4486538 KB4487085-v2 KB4487990 KB4489493 KB4489973 KB4489977 KB4490228 KB4490385 KB4490501 KB4491443 KB4493341 KB4493563 KB4493790 KB4493793 KB4493794 KB4493795 KB4493796 KB4493797 KB4493927 KB4494059 KB4494528 KB4495022 IE6-3124275 IE7-4018271 IE8-2598845 IE8-4493435

2000 and XP disabled. Vista will not be disabled, updates from Server 2008 are suitable for it, which is supported until January 2020, so there is an update that adds support for SHA-2 encryption.

Right, but you have to be able to get Vista updates up until April 2017 first, and then switch to Server 2008 updates.  And I wasn't referring to post-EOL updates, just ones made specifically for the OS.

Yes, if you take the original Vista, it will not support SHA-2, so it will not be able to connect to the Windows Update Server.

This might warrant a dedicated topic, no?

I'm with you, man, Don't make it even bigger "Everything-in-one-topic" mess, else two weeks from now noone will be able to find any meaningful info in here.

@dencorso, as a mod who frequently visits the topic, I'm calling you. are you also with us? :)

PS many thanks,! I think we should do it more often for those mega-threads :)

I had thought of taking my old HP xw8200 workstation and converting it to an offline audio editing suite.  I could use Windows XP x64 Edition (yes, offline ... I stress that since I've given XP users a jolly hard time in the past).  But that means I had better get 'er installed, updated and running.

For XP x64 users, you may want to use this page to fetch post-EOL updates from Server 2003.  They ran until July 2015.

Is there a Microsoft link etc. that confirms what you are saying? I can confirm that Vista received an update for SHA-256 in 2013.

The link doesn't say anything about XP and Vista, by "legacy Windows versions" they only mean Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 SP2.

Which means MS does not tell you anything about WU status for 2000/XP/Vista.

Server 2008 = Vista, therefore, if Server 2008 stops receiving updates, then Vista will no longer receive them. MS tries to forget about 2000 and XP as soon as possible, so there is no mention of them anywhere.

Ok there, few questions:

1) we've read articles about decommissioning Windows XP update system, but where is the official statement?

2) Will it shut down updates for various old office versions (Office 2003, 2007) as well?

3) Will the updates still be available to be downloaded via catalog?

I would imagine that Windows Update will shut down, but Microsoft Update will stay online, as it supports other Microsoft products which are still within their support windows, like Office 2010.
Of course they could just say that even though they're still in support, they are no longer supported on Windows XP, so they will close that too.
The fact that they've made Office 2010 incompatible with XP with the latest updates to it would seem to make that likely I'm afraid!

Here is the result of my work in a few days. It is also necessary to test in different combinations of versions of IE 6, 7, 8 and WMP 9, 10, 11. In the folder of each language, 208 updates, updates for each component are in their own folder.

Here is a list of all updates in all languages with links. I find only the link to the English version of the update, which adds exFAT support (KB955704), if someone has this update in other languages, upload it.

It seems a very strong repository, multilanguage updates give it a respectable plus: hoping something like that can be accessible when it will be required after WU servers dismiss.
