Updating Windows the SMART way

4 posts in this topic

This free tool from Heise Security will let you download the windows updates from a patched machine and will burn them to an iso that you can use on a freshly installed copy of 2000, or xp or server to update it before you connect it to the internet.

The tool specifically does not download the wga check and i think it even works with different language version of windows.

Just thought I'd add it for all of you, who like me, have to work on windowz like it or not.

Happy Computing

oh yea, the link

You can download all XP/2003/Vista updates directly from M$ without the wga check;

Either use a 'server' Windows OS (like2003) {no wga} or using the corporate update site and faking your browser agent on a lesser OS.

Either buy a genuine copy or run an alternative OS?

Oops, WGA problems gone...
