Last versions for products

It is worth to specify what version is the last for various products on the Download page (XP, Win2k and so on).

Well, a link to this forum thread should suffice. However, one could argue that if someone needs to install updates on older (unsupported) OS, it can be accepted that a little bit more effort is necessary to get such information... i.e. search for it (in the forum or via search engine).

It would. However, there's no info there what is the last version for Win2k (6.6.5).

The Windows Update Agent of XP has now become incapable of working with the current MS catalogs. Thus, the WOU version for Win XP is essentially worthless; the installation will not install any dynamic update, as the OS WUA cannot detect any missing updates. Newer XP with the POS trick applied seem to work still (using WUMT), as their WUA is more recent.

Windows 2000 updates will be gone from MS servers, for the major part. Additionally, W2K will have the same problem XP has, its WUA is even older.


For both XP and W2K, you need a finished ISO someone created when it still worked. We had such an ISO shared for XP, recently, maybe we can do the same for W2K.

Is there a way to download all updates for WinXP POSReady with WOU?

No.

We have an en-US pack over at MDL, but you need to be a member there to see the download links and post.

I've got a list, which has been checked against Windows Update to be complete.

Take the updates listed in this post
:arrow: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9947#p30189
and download them from here:

Why? I thought the whole point of version 9.2.6 ESR was to download "embedded" updates again, which were excluded before. For example, see the changes for ExtractDownloadLinks-wxp-x86-enu.xsl:

https://trac.wsusoffline.net/trac.fcgi/changeset/1087/branches/wsusoffline9.2.x/xslt/ExtractDownloadLinks-wxp-x86-enu.xsl

Only 5 duplicate updates are excluded, because they are already downloaded as "custom" updates using static download links:

https://trac.wsusoffline.net/trac.fcgi/changeset/1087/branches/wsusoffline9.2.x/exclude/ExcludeList-wxp-x86.txt

That discussion was in:

https://forums.wsusoffline.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9773

I thought, the result was, that the embedded updates are indeed downloaded, but not necessarily installed.

Caveats: The determination of superseded updates will be messed up with the wsusscn2.cab from December 2019.

Also w2k3 might fail to find any updates with a recent catalog (similar to wxp).

Embedded versions were never supported.
