My Unofficial Cumulative Windows XP Update (English only)


Recommended Posts

Not sure if it's OK for a new user to post something like that, but I really want to share this with as many as possible, so...

Hello and welcome! Allow me to present my own...

Unofficial Cumulative Windows XP Update

It allows you to completely update your Windows XP computer, even if it doesn't have any Service Packs installed!

The purpose of its creation was to collect all released updates, implement a user-friendly mechanism that installs them automatically, and release it as a single package. The mechanism works similiar to the actual Windows Updates, except you can also update offline computers and as many as you want, without having to download updates every time!

Contents:

  • Service Pack 1a (for XP RTM/SP0)
  • Service Pack 3
  • Internet Explorer 8
  • Windows Media Player 11
  • .NET Framework 1.1 & SP1 & updates
  • .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (has .NET 2.0 SP2 and .NET 3.0 SP2 in itself) & updates
  • .NET Framework 4.0 & updates
  • DirectX Redist June 2010 (final) and November 2007 (for antiques with non-SSE compliant CPU, e.g. Pentium II, AMD K6)
  • Firefox 52.9.0 (final) and 45.9.0 (for non-SSE2 compliant CPUs, e.g. Pentium III, Athlon XP)
  • Updates for Windows XP, Media Center Edition 2005, and POSReady 2009

And now some history!

I was developing this update pack since September 2017. It first appeared on my personal blog Świat według Kuby as a combined version that supported English, Polish, and German languages. I was inspired by similar update packs for other Windows OSes, i.e. Auto Patcher for Windows 98SE and UpdatePack7R2. My aim was also to provide something for localizations other than English. Up to XP it was a huge problem, especially for my national language - Polish. Availability of update packs for this localization was in general very little.

The blog has been closed on September 2018. Having realized that the first version was flawed, yet it gained some interest while my blog was still on the Web, I decided to return to its development. It reappeared on other forums on December 2018. Since then it collected positive feedback and I was releasing new versions from time to time, which featured bug fixes and sometimes new features.

What you see here is the final version released on December 29th, 2019, perfected to its finest in my opinion.

Enjoy! Any comments are welcome!
