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_installer_12May18

First: Best deployment would be from a fresh install of WinXP-uSP4! Upon first boot, place unzipped file on desktop and double click the "install" with in ... it will install each of the updates ... causing a Reboot when finished.

Next: from with-in the OS (Add or Remove Programs - Add/Remove Windows Components) chose to install all 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 again.

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).

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

Code: Select all

Besides KB4074852, as of today, Microsoft Update is showing the following updates after installing Gh0st's latest packs:

KB4093753
KB4101864
KB4093257
KB2564958 - odd, this is an old update from 2011
KB2538243

The latest pack (13Apr18) did update to include kb2564958, not sure why it still offered it to you again unless you have the older version. I have done a full/fresh install, then used my pack to update and first visit to MS Update I was fully updated except the one problem (KB4074852).

I have not looked at todays updates yet, but will update after a few days, to watch this forum and other forums, to make sure nothing goes wrong. So probably for this week end.

I have installed todays updates, but it would not offer them thru MU until I manually installed the latest IE8 (kb4103768), then it would offer the rest.

So today I got: kb4056564-v2, kb4101477, kb4103768, kb4130957, kb4131188, kb4134651 ... also offered two office updates. All is well for me! If no one complains about any of them I will update the post-uSP4 pack.

Remember, it is necessary to FIRST manually install the latest !E8 cumulative update EVERY MONTH to most reliably have MU/WU work effectively.

You might also want to reconsider KB4134651, 5eraph isn't including it in his update pack - viewtopic.php?p=144429#p144429.

Cheers and Regards

I forgot, but found out, thru trial and error. All was feeling good. In the past my issue with kb4074852 was trying to get to services.msc ... and others. This latest does not have that same effect there, but with Computer management. So will avoid KB4124651 ... thanks and also thanks to 5eraph!

does anyone know where I can download a KB, which installs the Microsoft Update?

you know when go to systems properties, Automatic Update tab, then hit the Windos Update Web site, on that site click to go to Microsoft Update site, it installs the MU software ... where can I get that, so I can add to my pack?

@Kurt_Aust, @mooms: I did try and like the (pushd "%~dp0"), but tryed to delete the other switches. The batch installer would stop cause some of the updates were set to reboot. So in the end, rather then try to figure each out, I just places all the previouse switches in place, so it will force it to install each. Then the IE8 update, at end, will cause reboot.

I did try to find place were I can check these switches and possible find better ones to use, but, after an hour of messing around, I could not find much of anything on this topic, at least nothing I could make sense of (4am in morning)

Do you have a site I could use, regarding switches that I could add in the BAT files and such?

I have finished the next version, I am dating 12May18, few days in advance, to give time for adobi to finish his AIO dotNET updater, which will include the two newest updates for dotNet2+4. Then I will do this on a new live install. Just to check see if I have all updates needed. I am just avoiding the one, kb4134651

@GH0st
what about the classic form for updates in batch file

Code: Select all

echo off
for %%i in (*.exe) do %%i /option1 /option2
and to run ie8 update last with restart option
you put it in a folder eg ie8
and you call it with

Code: Select all

.\ie8\ie8update.exe /option1 /option2 /...
the batch file and all updates should be in the same folder
Maybe someone with more experience in batch file command
can correct what i write

I got it figured out, got to do some more testing, on my own machine, if no problems, I will upload

Also to note, Adobi just released his most current dotNET AIO 20180508, very helpful when doing fresh install

WinXP_post_uSP4_hotfix_installer_12May18

I have tested multiple times on my current OS install. Everything works as planned. I will do a reformat and fresh install soon, to make sure I got all available updates included, except the one problem.

Special thanks to 5eraph, Kurt_Aust and mooms ... who played a roll in optimizing this update with their thoughts/suggestions. A good community effort here by all!
