Today, Jan. 15, 2015, I installed XP Mode in my Win 7 Pro 64-bit machine - my first ever try at virtualization.

 

Is there a way to use nlite to install ONLY the XP updates after SP3 into my already-running XP Mode (and so that Windows Update in the XP Mode agrees that they have been installed and doesn't try to re-download them)? 

 

See http://xdot.tk/ as one source for those compiled updates, but how can I inject them into my already-running XP Mode?

 

See also http://www.ryanvm.ne...wforum.php?f=25

 

I'm a real noob at this, but I know you experts have the answer!

 

Thanks.

No. nLite creates an install CD. Now that your XP is installed and if you want to keep it, there is not much gain in using anything else than Windows Update.  Alternatively you could check http://www.wsusoffline.net, but for one system that is online, I don't see the point.

Ponch - thanks for the lead - looks good.  Also, the site has a link to an Eli the Computer Guy youtube demo, so it's really clear.  Just started, so I don't know how well it will work, but seems solid.

 

If you have any tricks to using this better, please leave a note.

 

It's pulling the update files in now in the CMD window.  To save the full download (for example if I decide later to redo the entire XP Mode install from scratch if I screw it up this first time), I suppose I just need to save the wsusoffline921 folder somewhere, as it will all be in the "client" subfolder.

 

Will be interesting to see whether (when it installs the updates) it will sense that I already have SP3 and just start from there, and whether afterwards Windows Update will know that all the updates have in fact been installed.

 

After totally finished installing the updates, I will do the POS 2009 hack to bring those updates in as well (as I am doing on my old standalone XP machine).

 

Happy to receive suggestions from all.  This forum IS the right place!!
