WUA version 7.2.6001.784 is out as described here:
Thanks for the heads up!
I'm working on an update right now.
@TranceEnergy (and anyone else using Windows XP 64-bit)
DarkShadows: I tried finding Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications - KB905474 for XP 64bit sp2, but no luck. Now im sure one could possibly find out what kb that is for x64 with just looking under windir folder and finding the uninstall for it, if it creates a uninstall folder.
I'm just saying that it would be neat if one could have all the x64 links to downloads also. I'm going to check the list and see what other i can find/can't find. Obviously MSI installer 4.5 exists in download link for x64 as well as Windows update agent.
I don't have Windows XP 64-bit to test with. So take whatever I say next as pure speculation
and rely on your own testing to prove things.
As I documented in this guide's Version History
, I updated InstWGAV.inf
as of v3.0 so that it properly registers LegitCheckControl.dll without requiring Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications
. Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications is no longer a requirement for Windows XP 32-bit.
What does his mean for Windows XP 64-bit? I really have no idea. I don't even know if XP 64-bit downloads the same .cab files, or how the ActiveX controls get registered on XP 64-bit. On Windows XP 32-bit, the ActiveX .dll files usually end up in %WinDir%\System32
(one ends up in %WinDir%
). But I suspect this may be different on 64-bit. I also suspect that some registry settings will be different. But without the software to test on and rip apart, I really can't help you 64-bit folks much.
If you know how to read registry settings in an .inf file, it should be pretty clear to look my Inst*.inf
files (inside my MSDBuild.exe
WinRar SFX) and compare the 32-bit registry settings I'm settings to the ones on your 64-bit OS. Who knows, maybe my .infs will work on XP 64-bit without modification? (I doubt it, but might be worth a try on a test PC).
If you can use what I have posted to figure out an air-tight proces for Windows XP 64-bit, I will be happy to post a 64-bit download. But you 64-bit folks are going to have to do some home work on this and report back here.
No one has ever told me if my guide even works on Windows XP 64-bit or not!
