Post Sp2 Update file from Ryanvm

Post by beached » Wed Nov 21, 2007 6:00 pm

Every time I try to download the Post Sp2 Update file or any of the Add-ons I get the following message.

"Service Temporarily Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later."

This has been going on for days. Can anyone help as I need the Sp2 Update file etc to make a customised WinXp disk

Welcome to the forum!

The best way to get those files is by torrent... Here's the link to the tracker: http://tracker.ryanvm.net/

And just in case a tutorial on torrent: http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4879

Yep, pretty much the tone here.

For the current (old June) update pack try MajorGeeks (http://www.majorgeeks.com/RyanVMs_Windo ... d5085.html).

If, however, you are looking for any of the update pack addons don't think they can be found mirrored anywhere else.

You could of course choose to open up holes in your firewall, contravene company torrent policies, and run a bit torrent - but then again maybe not.

Well, pretty much all the addons on my site are out of date anyway, FWIW.

I'm going to try to come up with better download options for next month's release.

Do you have numbers of d/l for your Update pack?

Numbers from the beginning would be great if you have them :)

I'm thinking about writing a short paper about 3rd party windows update movement or sort of and your work will be frontpage filler.

Thanks

From the beginning? No way. However, 2.1.11 has gotten over 26000 downloads from the tracker alone. I think Majorgeeks shows their download numbers as well.

So yeah, it's high.
