I would like to repeat once again that this update is not required for Windows Update/Microsoft Update to function. Wikipedia has summary of what this update is and it's purpose.

How do I know this update isn't required? Because I can still use Windows Update just fine. Furthermore, once you install this update, it cannot be uninstalled.

So I urge once again to ignore this update. If you don't want it to show up on Windows Update, do the following:

1. Open Windows Update and deselect Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications.

2. Select the option to not show this update.

That's it! If you use Automatic Updates, do the exact same thing when Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications is shown.

If you want to create an add-on:

1- Unzip the located windowsxp-kb905474-xxx-x86.exe with Winrar or 7z.

2- You'll get wganotifypackageinner.exe. Unzip it.

3- Now, just update this one, unzip it and replace its files with your located ones.

You'll have to rename legitcheckcontrol.dll

4- Rebuild the add-on by compressing files with 7z or with the makecab dos command.

This probably isn't the right area to ask but... can these steps be used to automate the install of KB905474? I've followed these steps, but the result doesn't have an installer (probably since it's for use with HFSLIP). Any thoughts on that?

I'll keep looking around, but I'm trying to figure out a way to deploy this to a bunch of machines.

EDIT: answered my own question! Using the unpacked installer and the registry entries in post 73 gets it installed without incident. Thanks anyway!

Deploy on a bunch of machines huh? Are you using this for a corporate environment?

Furthermore, once you install this update, it cannot be uninstalled.

indeed that there is no official way to uninstall KB905474 but you can scrub the WGAN files off your XP computer by using the latest version of xp-antispy.

This is what I do to silently install KB905474:

I extract files from the download, then:

start /wait wganotifypackageinner.exe /passive /norestart /nobackup
regedit /s kb905474.reg

Where kb905474.reg contains:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Genuine Advantage]
"GSSS"=dword:00000000
"EulaState"=dword:00000002
"EulaVersion"="1.9.40.0"
"HDSLN"="00000000-00000000"
"MAC"="00-00-00-00-00-00;"
"UGD"="{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}"
"InstallID"="{30F230D0-7940-499e-8A01-748682288985}"

I change the sensitive private information:

HDSLN (Hard disk serial?)

MAC (MAC address of network card(s))

UGD (random unique serial?)

It seems to work so far.

PS: If you don´t want to install this "update", just add the registry entries and it will not come up in Windows/Microsoft Update.

If you don't want to install the update, the InstallID registry key is all that's required to prevent installation.

That's what I thought. Is there any easy way to extract it from the hotfix INF?

rhadamants - I appreciate your inputs, but please don't post the full up script file. Posting the script file without the software license and credits is against the software license agreement. Please repost the latest from/to changes and I'll be happy to incorporate them.

Thank you very much. :) It works with HFSLIP 1.7.8 Final.

BTW, is the code work really? It just adds "InstallID" to registry. There are many lines to add to registry in update.inf. I am wondering about that it works well with "InstallID" only.

Does not need to edit v1.7.10_betaJ or newer to integrate this update package?
