I once took care of .NET Framework 3.5 sp1 (offline installer) and 4 Full (offline installer) inlusive language packs.

Net Framework.txt

All download links are available at the Wayback machines!

Incidentally, I can contribute the file "WMEncoder.exe" for German (DEU), unfortunately resting at the moment still on my HDD.

At KB951830 it looks very modest too!

Excellent work!

Has anyone managed to get the WU website *itself* on the Wayback machine in some form? Perhaps if someone were to reverse engineer it somehow, it can be used to download updates in the future?

If there is interest in the update collectors on a corrected KB4494528 (Update for MSI 4.5 from April 2019, the file msi.dll was not registered correctly). Available for all language variants. The updates can be requested from me by PM. 

One can be dumb and still achieve success by being surrounded by good people.

After all, I decided not to install fixed installed from heinoganda, but re-register DLLs as per older instructions and windows live essentials installed :)
Hints I used: https://msfn.org/board/topic/171814-posready-2009-updates-ported-to-windows-xp-sp3-enu/?do=findComment&comment=1162234

So, I have downloaded all Windows Live essentials offline installers from the links provided by Heinoganda, with a bit of help from Wayback Machine... with an exception of pt-pt, which has not been archived, sadly.

I t also showed another update: Bing bar: http://download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/software/svpk/2011/12/bingbarsetup-partner_830306fc16a3030de59d1108a59211391e98e0b4.exe
I don't think it's much useful now, but I downloaded it for the sake of completeness... Nothing happens when I double-click it, but rebooting the PC makes it show in Internet Explorer, so, after all, it works :)

Attaching updated file with list of updates (SP2, Bing Bar, and Wayback Machine links to Windows live essentials 2009 offline + ES link to WMEncoder posted few posts ago :)

Links to Service Pack 1 is already inoperative. 

If you have those links, I might go through Wayback Machine Looking for them.


Also, for the sake of completeness, I'. trying to put MSE into it's finest on XP.

As for .net, I used abbodi's installer as suggested earlier. I am not certain about few things, asked my doubts here, but no answer... maybe if any of you can speed up by answering, here's the link: https://repacks.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=26&start=90

For the sake of completeness, I'd also need everything for Microsoft Security Essentials Archived, but I just ended reading this: and I am a bit confused. right now... but briefly looking for everything I can potentially ask @heinoganda already have answer :)

I'm glad to announce that, of the 5624 links present in the Updates.txt file (w/o counting the KB955704 exFAT and AppLocale ones, see here), 5623 have been saved on the Wayback Machine! :thumbup

That's suuper-good :D but, once all is finished, having a file with all the links to Wayback machine would be also cool, as its search engine is slooooowww...

@ED_Sln From the links you provided only the first one worked, and it's XPSP1a, not XPSP1. Second one was not archived in Wayback machine. fort he rest of them, Wayback machine shows that it collected only 404 responses in it's history that dates back to early 2003 for those files.

I found XPSP1 archived in BetaArchive and MyDigitalLife, but access to their archives is not super-straightsforward. If anyone's part of their communities, I'd be glad for a help :)

@heinoganda - thanks, I got them all downloaded :)

Have generated the required updates for .NET Framework 3.5 sp1 and 4 based on my lists.

.NET Framework 3.5 sp1    Updates





.NET Framework 4    Updates



Archived at WayBack!

After the installation of .NET Framework 3.5 sp1 the Windows XP update KB961118 is needed!
Furthermore, I recommend KB971314. This update to resolve an issue where included PCL printer drivers are no longer signed after installing Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 or XPS Essentials Pack on Windows XP.

The .NET Framework updates are internationally applicable and do not require language-dependent updates. When installing the .NET Framework, it is possible to install a language pack as desired.

In the previous post (https://msfn.org/board/topic/178377-on-decommissioning-of-update-servers-for-2000-xp-and-vista-as-of-july-2019/?do=findComment&comment=1166316) in the file "Net Framework.txt" are the download links for the language packs included (here I had inadvertently written "Sprachpakete" instead of "language packs" in the description.

For example, it installs .NET Framework 3.5 sp1 and then installs the desired .NET Framework 3.5 sp1 language pack (by Sprachpakete). The same with .NET Framework 4.

.NET Framework 3.5 sp1 and .NET Framework 4 do not required an English-language language pack.

I found this ZIP from a while ago if anyone's still running Office 2002, I think one exists by the same uploader for Office 2000. Dunno really if it's relevant, though.

What would probably be the most useful contribution to the thread would be a ZIP archive (probably one per collected language) that contains the update files sorted out by what they apply to and then a set of batch scripts that automates the process if that's possible for the user's needs.

Possibly with this as some kind of file structure for the archive:


   /2009-April 2014


      /NET Framework (2.0-3.5)

      /NET Framework (4.0)

      /Internet Explorer 8

      /Media Player 11


   /May 2014-April 2019


      /NET Framework (2.0-3.5)

      /NET Framework (4.0)

      /Internet Explorer 8

      /Media Player 11


   /Microsoft Office






      /Office Compatibility Pack






The binaries folder would contain probably SP3 itself, IE8, .NET in Important, and WMP11, TweakUI and anything else can belong in Optional, I guess?

If anyone has any suggestions for tweaking this or has a better idea I'd like to hear it. Wish I was capable though of knowing all my way around this stuff though :P

I am trying to make a "final" WinXP installation CD with all updates. Thanks to ED_Sln and pcalvert providing the KB links, I merged links as downloading reference, and got the list to download from a fresh XPsp3 installation with PosReady registry hack. Then I use nlite to integrate them all. However nlite complained about three KB numbers: 2900986,3033890,4489973. I checked that they could use /integrate switch without problem, so I integrate them using cmd line first, then nlite with left. All went well. No updates shown after installation except those optional feature packs. Upload my nlite setting file hoping it could help others. Entries.ini is for adding PosReady registry or 4489973 will fail (it will check for PosReady installed).

And I have some doubts about integration. The ISO size grows about 80M. I see those updates are copied to \I386\SVCPACK:

Of which 3 are by my "manual" integration and others are by nlite. And I found them under correspondent [SetupHotfixesToRun] section in svcpack.inf. In addition with the case of 4489973 installation checking, it seems they are not "integrated", but in fact just run in the installation process. Even worse, the contents of them have also been extracted to WM8, WM9, WM9l,WM10,WM10l,WM10MIX,WM11 folders, occupying about 46M.

My question is, is what I observed normal? What is special about the 3 updates that nlite can't use them despite they have normal switch as others? As for those 11 updates, are there something wrong with the updates, nlite,  or my setting?


One more try letting nlite do all the integration, ignoring its warnings about the 3 updates, got almost  same results. So nlite could do it well, the 3 updates' problem may be trivial.

And I find some registry failure in my previous setting. Updated nlite.ini and entries.ini below.

The only mystery remains is that why those 11 updates cannot be integrated.


entries.ini nlite_en.ini
