x64 Edition Updates Until 2015?
Posted 13 February 2012 - 06:31 PM
So for an extra year, will I be able to manually download Windows Server 2003 updates and use them to patch my system running Windows XP x64 Edition? I enjoy using 64-bit Windows XP and my system is pretty snappy with it. So the longer I can run the OS, the happier I am.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Now it means I have to decide on an alternate lightweight OS that can run select Win32 apps, and yet not be a pig like Windows Vista or Windows 7.

- Extract the update package.
- Copy the patched update.exe into the extraction directory.
- Run the patched update.exe
"%~1" /u /x:"%~dp0%~n1" copy /y "%~dp0update.exe" "%~dp0%~n1\update\" "%~dp0%~n1\update\update.exe"

Of course, no one knows if as of May 2014, Microsoft will change other parts of the updates to make sure XP x64 is blocked out.

I suppose the status of updates never changed here, eh? I suppose the .INF editing would still be necessary?
