Windows 2000 Updates

To get Windows 2000 to work with windows updates you need to download a newever version of root certificates. also some of the links have been changed for some utils. as far as i am aware windows 2000 updates are still included on windows updates. i am not curruntly at my computer, when i do get there i will upload my copy of WOU for Windows 2000. you will still need to download the files in the cleint folder. my copy included optional updates which WOU doesnt include by default. i will include the new version of Root Certificates within my version of WOU.

Danke!!! :) Werde ich umgehend ausprobieren. Das ging ja bisher sagenhaft einfach.

Problem ist ja, dass man die Offline-Updates am dringendsten braucht, wenn es sie Online nicht mehr gibt.
Und dann ist selbst die richtige WSUSOU-Version zu finden alleine schon wieder so ein Problem, das man damit eigentlich lösen wollte :roll: .

Liebe Grüße

Thanks a lot for your answer and for going to upload your extended WOU archive.

What I did was (SP4 and Rollup already done):

1. installed Windows Installer 3.1 V2 manually
2. installed Windows Update Agent 2.0 manually
3. installed KB 842773 (Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) 2.0 and WinHTTP 5.1) manually

I still got script and /or "need to update to latest servicepack" errors.

Then I realised I am still using IE5 :oops: , so updated to IE6SP1.
Sript errors were gone but still the "missing service pack error" or sometimes a completely empty page.
Finally I got aware of the outdated root certificates myself, found a working link, updated again manually ... and resulted in an http error 404.

Visting http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupda ... aspx?ln=de manually using a Mozilla based browser resulted in a "Use your Start menu to check for updates" message (in German of course).

However, after having inatalled the updates from Deniss' archive I got one single additional file by the Windows 2000 update agent (btw: it was only hardware related).
So, you seem to be absolutely right and my only problem left was the root certificates.
The updates seem still to be available - but the 'hard' way only!?

It's rather the 'We don't care anymore' way. For 9x/Me, the WU servers are already gone.

wsusoffline665_w2k - Copy.ZIP

This is my version that I use for Windows 2000 updates. I have deleted all of the files that were downloaded. Since you want the German version you had to download them anyway.
Within the "EXTRA UPDATES" folder is a .txt file which tells you what KBs are required by W2k that are not included as default with WOU. if you are familiar with adding custom KBs to download and install you should know what to do.

I did a test run with this yesterday for the German versions, all updates are still on Microsoft's servers.

Hope this helps

Hello Cababs,

thanks again for your efforts but I cannot access your link and get only a 'Stop - there might be a problem with the requested link' message.

Actually, I don't know yet how to add optional updates but this seems to be well documented and I'm sure I'll manage it (The .NET files are most important to me).

Concerning the availability of Windows Updates: This seems to change hourly. Sometimes it works, sometimes I get a '404', sometimes I get a 'folder removed message' ... Strange ...
But accessing it by WOU might be also somehow a little bit different than by IE!?

Concerning the root certificates: I learned the latest one from http://www.download.windowsupdate.com/m ... otsupd.exe cannot be installed by executing the exe on Win2K anymore. However, the executable can be unpacked and the certificates manually registered. Not sure if this really matters or even worked but since then the connection to Windows Updates has been fine till now ...

I see what you mean. this is most likely caused by the link to OneDrive (Formally SkyDrive) its shortened. if you continue with the link it will take you to OneDrive.

The Root Certificates that are needed to be installed are in the zip file under Client\W2k. read the txt file. it explains how to use it

Ok, understood. Haven't seen the "continue at your own risk" link, :oops:.
Now I get to the folder where the file resides, but:
If I try to download it I get nothing but a warning 'Unable to scan wsusoffline665_w2k - Copy.zip for viruses' and cannot proceed with the download (neither using IE nor Mozilla based browsers). However, other files in the folder like the 7zip binaries or the wsusofflineupdateINSTALL.txt file can be downloaded ... :?:

As I couldn't download the file I tried to find out why and found this:
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/oned ... 051f2577fa

I followed the hint to download the entire folder as a workaround and (nearly) succeeded in :o.
I got a 'Public.zip' containing every file of your public folder - but 'wsusoffline665_w2k - Copy.ZIP' :( .
Instead there are two additional text files 'Download errors.txt' and ''wsusoffline665_w2k - Copy.zip.txt', both claiming your zip archive is infected by a virus:

wsusoffline665_w2k - Copy.zip.txt inside the folder archive wrote:We detected that this file contains a virus that could harm your computer and stopped the download.

The problem is that both GUIs (Downloader and Installer) are written in AutoIt, which is very frequently detected as virus. Regarding WSUSOU, hat is a False Positive. The ZIP should have been password-protected.
