Problem with original XP-SP3 Restore-CD

Postby gadrecs » Tue Aug 02, 2011 14:00

hallo,

i have to reinstall several older Esprimos . So XP-SP3 Restore-CD in the drive and lets go
Installation runs fine. But afterwards Windows Update states, when you try to catch up with all the patches and updates until now, that it can´t because the right ServicePack is missing.
so lets check: > Computer -> Settings -> Windows XP ServicePack3

maybe its the old IE 6, so IE8 installed -> same result. Die Update-pages redurect you to here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2497281

so, SP3 reinstalled manually : no chance

i tried this now with 3 different Esprimos and 2 different XP-SP3 Restoremedias -> Results are all the same -> none !

What can i do ?
kind regards,

Markus

Hi

1. Open notepad
2. Copy the following text and past it into notepad

*-- copy text from between these comments
@echo off
if exist %windir%\system32\wups2.dll goto fix32if exist %windir%\syswow64\wups2.dll goto fix64goto error
:fix32net stop wuauservregsvr32 %windir%\system32\wups2.dllnet start wuauservgoto eoj
:fix64net stop wuauservregsvr32 %windir%\syswow64\wups2.dllnet start wuauservgoto eoj
:errorecho Unable to locate wups2.dll operation aborted
:eojpause

3. Save the file and name it sp3fix.bat (change the save as type option to all files *.*)
4. Run the sp3fix.bat file

you should get a regsvr32 confirmation window, click OK

your windows updates should now work.
