I am in the process of slipstreaming Win XP PRO to SP3 when I get to installing post SP3 updates UDC-12-09-14.bat does not connect to microsoft site or either of the 2 mirror sites. Am I doing something wrong or are the links no longer active? Any thoughts?

You can change (comment/delete) the failing lines and replace them with these (found later in the script).

del cabarc.exe

ECHO Downloading Cabarc.exe from MS...
wget -nc http://download.microsoft.com/download/6/e/4/6e481b67-54af-4340-a534-25de4229cfc6/support.cab
7za.exe e "%~dp0SUPPORT.CAB" -o"%~dp0" CABARC.EXE -y
del "%~dp0SUPPORT.CAB"

Be sure to delete/comment those lines (later in the script) or it will repeat the download.


These are the failing lines to comment/delete.

wget --connect-timeout=10 --tries=3 --waitretry=5 ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/Services/TechNet/samples/PS/Win98/Reskit/NETADMIN/PROFMGR/TOOLS/CABARC.EXE

WARNING! Remove (comment/delete) the "del cabarc.exe" line in the *first* codebox.
