So Windows Update for WinXP 32-64 is finally turned off?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Yesterday I tried to update my 3 Win XP installations:

- Win XP Home SP3 without any MS Office suite

- Win XP Home SP3 with MS Office 2010 suite

- Win XP Pro x64 SP2 with MS Office 2010 suite

and it failed on all occasions. Frankly, I expected eventual updates only on the installations that have Office 2010. However, all I got was some error messages from the Windows/Microsoft Update page.

I guess M$ finally pulled the plug on the Update services for Win XP iterations? Probably because that will save them a lot of money for hosting and traffic expenses?

For about 1 month, the windows.update site does not work, sometimes it opens, but the search for updates ends with an error. So we can assume that it is disabled.

It loads here, but i'm missing the WU ActiveX and it fails to download. The MU ActiveX installed fine though. My IE is pretty broken, lol.




[edit] just tried on my work system, there i get "Error number: 0x80244019" which is supposed to mean error 404...

At least i got the Express/Custom prompt there.
