Microsoft Windows Update v3/v4/v5

To get a working infrastructure for Windows Update v4 it seems we need:

http://wustat.windows.com

http://ntservicepack.microsoft.com

http://schemas.windowsupdate.com/

http://download.windowsupdate.com (maybe for removed updates?)

WUSTAT, that is, the first one, seems to be a conditional domain that blocks WUv4 or not.

The second NTServicePack and the third Schemas, in my opinion, have more to do with WUv3.1 than with WUv4.

And the fourth is the domain where the updates are stored, many of the versions "retired" by Micro$oft are still there especially in http://www.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3-19990518, many follow executables for Windows 9x, that's why WUv6 as the catalog still shows updates for 2000 and XP while the download center doesn't.

Do you know what calls are sent from v4 to this domain? There is a file called wutrack.bin on it.

NTServicePack has also files related to Windows 2000 on it.

Probably just a website used for tracking and statistics. We wouldn't want that.

I think I found the problem in WUv4. It looks like content.js is buggy, because splash.asp accesses it.

@maile3241 Can u manage WUv4 from the paid version of wayback machine downloader (aka download v4 files from paid version of wayback machine downloader)?

I already have. But that didn't work either.

I think the problem for wu v3 is the ActiveX. It doesn't ask me to install the ActiveX control on my computer.

Hello to everyone involved in the project.

Is there any news about WUv4? My guess is that either something is wrong in splash.asp and javascript or a page is missing. But maybe there is something wrong with iuctl. By the way, wustat.windows.com was the pingserver for calculating the download time.
