XP updates missing

XP updates missing

Postby thany » 26.05.2014, 23:31

I may be just tired or something, but I noticed Windows XP updates are completely missing... How/where do I enable them?

I'm using version 9.3 on windows 7.

And mind you, this trick proves that there *are* still updates. Regulars just aren't getting them. On top of that, there are still components that aren't restrictly Windows XP, but can be updated when running on XP. Such as MSIE.

I just downgraded to WSUSOU 9.2.1 to work around this limitation for the time being.

The problem is, that it is not allowed to use this trick.
As discussed in :arrow: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4287 wsusou will not support this trick as it hurts Microsofts EULA.

There is no need for WSUSOU to support the registry hack. Do support WinXP (POSReady 2009) in WSUSOU until April 9th 2019, that's all we need.

Feel free to use version 9.2.1 and adapt it to your needs regarding XP POS ready. The main release won't support it.

You mean: Feel free to use version 9.2.1 and adapt it to your „future“ needs regarding XP POS ready. The main release won't support it.
In other words: Write your own WSUSOU if there will be problems with version 9.2.1 next year. :mrgreen:

Correct. POSReady is not a Windows version a normal user will ever be able to get legally. Likewise, XP doesn't take the updates without the (equally illegal) registry hack.

You need to walk that path alone I'm afraid.

And that's why I close this now.
