ok, here it is ... the Post-uSP4 update hotfix batch installer.

This started with trevor12, modified by myself. I removed all the dotNet updates as abbodi86 does a perfect job updating all the dotNets, with his most current AIO installer. I took out a few known BAD updates (kb4056615, kb4074852) and the added March 2018 updates. Installing the latest IE8, which fixes things.

Proper deployment would be from a fresh install of uSP4, upon first boot to desktop, to place the "HOTFIX" folder on the C-drive, proper path would then be "C:\hotfix", from with-in that folder double click the "install" ... it will install all in the order its written. Reboot. With in the OS (Add or Remove Programs - Add/Remove Windows Components) chose to install dotNet 1-3-4, Harkaz does perfect install/optimization, reboot. Then install the abbodi86 AIO update pack, which will update *ALL* dotNET's thru January 2018. Upon first attempt of windows update you will be offered newer dotNET updates and the two dreaded BAD updates listed above, which should avoided!

This will offer the most perfect fresh install, (almost) fully updated, all offline, feels good.

Hotfix post-uSP4 batch installer--> newer version listed below

abbodi86 AIO dotNet update installer--> https://drop.me/on3G0q

I will try to update this file regularly, but I will need some help from 5eraph and user_hidden, so I know which updates to remove, while adding newer files, that replace older ones.

edit: to clarify things better (mockingbird)
I just did a fresh install, and did what I posted here. Worked like a charm!!!!!!! Really impressively easy. I did go to windows update and it gave me the option to add KB4056615, KB4074852 (which I did not) and KB2564958. That last one is much older and I will add it to the next release of "Hotfix post-uSP4 bat installer". Also, Abbodi86's AIO dotNet updater does install all updates to dotNet! Makes for a nice install, feels really good!!

GH0st, you may wish to name the next version of your archive in the form "WinXP_post_USP4_hotfixes_batch_installer_date.7z" as I can see people downloading the current version and then forgetting what it's actually for.

Tested Windows XP SP4 in a virtual machine. Microsoft.NET Framework 4.0 is not wrapped in a package? It was not installed.

OK ... WinXP_post_uSP4_hotfix_batch_installer_13Apr18

Best deployment would be from a fresh install of WinXP-uSP4! Upon first boot to desktop, place the "HOTFIX" folder on the C-drive. Proper path would then be "C:\hotfix", from with-in that folder double click the "install" ... it will cause a Reboot when its complete.

With-in the OS (Add or Remove Programs - Add/Remove Windows Components) chose to install dotNet 1-3-4, Harkaz does perfect install/optimization, then reboot. Then install the abbodi86 AIO update pack, which will update ALL dotNET's, time to reboot.

This will offer the most perfect fresh install, fully updated ... OFFLINE, feels good!

Most recently, 5eraph, listed his updates to his update pack, which updates should be deleted cause newer ones cover the older ones. That and I need to add one more. So will work on this tonight, should be up soon. I will update the upper post, showing changes too.

I named it uSP4 hotfix, but could be used on any x86_enu WinXP computer.

GH0st, you've hard coded the paths in your batch file

Code: Select all

c:\hotfix\windowsxp-kb942288-v3-x86.exe /n /o /q /z
which means that for it to work without editing, people have to extract the archive to C:\Hotfix


As there is no UAC elevation issues in XP, it would be better off without the path, then it could be extracted and ran from anywhere

Code: Select all

windowsxp-kb942288-v3-x86.exe /n /o /q /z

Or you could use the %~dp0 variable to automatically generate the correct path

Code: Select all

"%~dp0windowsxp-kb942288-v3-x86.exe" /n /o /q /z

Also, is there a particular reason that you use the /NoBackup /n and /OverwriteOEM /o switches or use /Quiet /q rather than /Passive /u (which gives visual progress feedback to the user) ?

Or you could use this single line:

Code: Select all

pushd %~dp0
Then the folder of the batch file will be the working folder (no need to put %~dp0 at the beginning of each local files you want to execute).
Alteration of the world
Want to thank me ? If you buy something on Banggood with this link, I will earn a little %.

This was ORIGINALLY done by another member, this is his work, I have just updated it with the current changes ... will see about doing what you say here!

If using mooms' suggestion, better add quote marks around "%~dp0"

Code: Select all

pushd "%~dp0"
