@biro This must be a problem with the urlmon.dll/url.dll version. Please check file versions for both files on the SP4 CD, then use a bootable CD-ROM to check the file version on the system about to be installed - that crashes ).

This is indeed an issue, I have reproduced it. I have created a fix, but since the urlmon.dl_ can be downloaded already seperately it may not be necessary to upload a new EXE.

UPDATE: I will upload the new EXE files to GDrive only.

Delta patches will be also provided.

nLite reports it as MCE because it looks for some media center INF files. It's not MCE unless you have slipstreamed it to a MCE disk. For USB Bootable disk, what program did you use to create it? Many programs, like Rufus and WinNTSetup, do work fine. You can also find a video tutorial about slipstr...

@ricktendo I am building the Post-sp4 update pack and I was wondering whether the latest XPS files in your addon do work in Windows XP ENU.

In addition, how can I extract the MS delta-compressed update files (named 0,1,2,3,...)? Decompression tools that come with Windows 7 cannot perform the extract.
