Publisher's Description

RyanVM's Windows XP Post-SP2 Update Pack is designed to bring a Windows XP CD with SP2 integrated fully up to date with all of the latest hotfixes released by Microsoft since SP2's release. It accomplishes this task via direct integration, where files on the CD are directly overwritten by the updated files. This method has numerous advantages over other integration techniques.

I use nLite to slipstream Windows XP Home and Pro disks to service pack 2, and make them unattended.

Well as SP3 is already available so I rate it 4 otherwise I can rate it 5. I would appreciate if they release a timezone updates which is missing with Windows XP SP3.

The Original version of this, which will slip-stream SP1 and/or SP2 in with your original Windows XP installation disk is outstanding.

I'm not sure of the exact benefits of the Post-SP2 update pack, so this one may be hard to recommend.

But if you slipstream SP2 into your config and then do Windows Update, you should be covered, I think.

Excellent!!!!

I use nLite to slipstream Windows XP Home and Pro disks to service pack 2, and make them unattended.

Then I use RyanVM's Windows XP Post-SP2 Update Pack
to slipstream the nLited disks to just before SP-3.

Then use .NET-3.5 offline installer from Microsoft. (note that the installer includes .NET 2 and 3 and 3.5 with service packs and updates. A bug in Windows online updates wants to install an update for .NET 3 but fails because the above installer already includes it, so just ignore it.)

Now only 8 online updates left and no reboots!!

Hi Gang,

I haven't Ryan's update package out yet, but I just want to point out that SP3 is coming out tomorrow. Apparently it won't initially be on windows update, but as an individual download:

good to have a newly updated Update Pack from Ryan.
Even better will be the post SP3 pack from him!

It's the best for busy system administrators and for those who wants to avoid downloading more than 100MB of updates and messing you whole /WINDOWS directory.

I give it strong 5!

(As a side note I'd like to say that I will skip this update and wait till XP SP3 is out - it's really close).

@ Use all three; see below.

This pack used as the author packaged it for is to make your custom install CD/DVD up-to-date at the time is burned. Using either Ryan's Integrator or nLite, you start with a security updated install. From there you can easily use Autopatcher to keep up to date.

This package is excellent and I give an A for effort and a 5 for hitting all targets.

I will give an "A" for effort, but NLite is much better combined with AutoPatcher.

You can have all the updates post SP2 from AutoPatcher (Not a select few) and then you can integrate them along with Drivers and many other aspects with NLite.

I have been able to remake the Windows XP CD for so many different Setups (IBM, HP, Customs).

Plus it can output it to a Standard ISO or write you a new CD / DVD.

It's so nice to do a Windows Setup and NOT have to look for any drivers and have minimal patches.

very good update pack.
i didnt use the integrator - i used nlite and it worked .
i also used addones like peerguardian ,kerio firewall ,SpywareBlaster ,direct x 9.0c windows media player 11.
worked like a charm.

I used this and the official integrator with an original Windows XP install CD. Slipstreamed SP2 and the update pack to create a new CD. On first boot errors were popping up all over, frame.dyn dll is missing, srclient.dll is missing, IE and OE Express are both hosed, etc. I tried it on a different PC with the same result, had to throw out the CD. Went back to using a vanilla XP CD with SP2 slipstreamed.

BAD.
