Microsoft deleted XPSP3/2000SP4 Links

Recommended Posts

If we can, let's try and keep this thread just to Windows 2000. Although starting a thread like this in the XP forum would be a great idea as well for those who are looking for these old links and cannot find them on the regular web. But that way it's easier to find when it's in the right forum. :yes:

 

Tommy and SubMix8

 

If you are interested, I created pages that auto-redirect to the archived downloads.

 

People are going to start looking for the original page and then not find it. Because of this, I created a page and programmed it in FrontPage, with a Custom System Variable to redirect to the archived version in 3 seconds.

[Offtopic Comment]
You have got to love loopholes!

If you'd like to try it out, it's here. It took me all of 5 minutes to do this.

I titled them to resemble the title of the original page, so that when someone web searches for Windows 2000 and XP SP2 or SP3, mine will be one of the first to appear:

Archived downloads is good, they seem to work okay on my end. I do like it actually. I'd almost like to create a separate thread for all those kinds of links and then add it to my thread of important links to Windows 2000 topics.

Oy! Slick!

Now how about the XP Post-SP3 EOL list from -X-'s script? :unsure:

Getting into Archive for all of them would be time-consuming. :crazy:

Hey sdfox7, you don't mind if I replace the dead links on my Windows 2000 page with yours, do you? I'll need to mirror KB891861 (Update Rollup 1), KB842773 (BITS 2.0 update), and Windows Installer 3.1 as well (I happen to have German, Japanese, Russian, and Chinese versions of all those updates stored locally)

I don't see why there'd be a problem unless you claim it was all your own work finding them. Having up-to-date Windows 2000 resources is a great idea, it makes it much easier on all of us to find stuff rather than having to spend hours looking for updates. Man, I remember when Windows NT still had a place on Microsoft's website...talk about how time flies now that XP and 2000 links are disappearing.

The links on my http://sdfox7.com/win2ksp.htm link directly to Microsoft's server. I also have the packages directly in my /2000 folder.

 

Once the links go down, I will edit the page to direct to the Internet Archive. I may consider doing it sooner than that.

Hi all.

These should be the original links from microsoft for italian SP4:
1) download page: www.microsoft.com/it-it/download/details.aspx?id=4127
2) direct link: download.microsoft.com/download/4/3/9/4399958A-CAE3-48CF-9FC3-2A36DAAB3A5E/w2ksp4_it.exe

They are already present into Internet Archive

Edited by Tommy
Removed physical links, please copy them into archive.org to use

1) download page http://www.microsoft.com/it-it/download/details.aspx?id=4127

2) direct link: http://download.microsoft.com/download/4/3/9/4399958A-CAE3-48CF-9FC3-2A36DAAB3A5E/w2ksp4_it.exe

They are already present into Internet Archive

Can anyone verify this? I clicked on both links and both produce dead results.

Okay, I see what you're saying. I'm going to break the links then since they don't actually lead anywhere and just leave the text address up for copying.

 

Edit: Done. Now the full address will appear. I removed the http:// since that will continue to trigger a hyperlink but testing it in archive.org, it's not necessary to have anyway.

Getting into Archive for all of them would be time-consuming. :crazy:

 

Unfortunately, because -X- has a robots file, the page cannot be archived. The robots file would need to be removed in order to allow the Internet Archive to crawl.

 

For reasons unrelated to this thread, I think using a robots file is unnecessary; there is a lot of great historical information that can be gleaned from the Internet Archive.

 

Kids growing up in the future can access old pages to read the CBS News on 9/11 or the 2008 financial crisis from CNN. We are doing them a disservice when we use intentional techniques (such as using a robots file) to obfuscate history.

Huh??? His website is a SINGLE PAGE!

There's only ONE "zip" file that matters!

I have (nearly) all of them since "UDC-04.12.11.zip"

The SINGLE PAGE has the MS web Page download links starting from "July 2009". Start there and work your way up.

I see what you're trying to do - get his site via WebArchive. Nope! Ain't gonna happen!

 

BTW, he NEVER store in "downloads" any ZIP file OTHER than the latest.

NO ARCHIVES (I just tride it)! So you can forget that. :(

 

What I *meant* was to get the LAST one for the Original MS Links for the purpose of using on WebArchive in case they go AWOL from the MS Servers. :crazy:

 

The best I can do is supply what I have, but why? Just to have Obsolete/Superseded files? :unsure: BTW, his NEVER had anyything less than SP3 as it was built around it (See WUD). And FWIW, I have several XP WUD ULZ files (including Post-SP2?).

 

I'm not prepared to open my Server (on triple-boot to XP right now) but I could provide what I have and you could collect them. PM me and then wait until I'm ready (so I can give address/access).

All links are still good (for now?) but there's a catch. I managed to collect all links to all languages of the full blown XP SP1a / SP2 / SP3 on Microsoft Update Catalog. Not exactly sure why but somehow they're only providing SP4 Express for 2000.

 

I would like to kindly ask a very generous member with 2000SP3 (or below) to install a sniffer before running the SP4 Express installer, then would you please let us know the direct links to the files being fetched? Many thanks and have a great day:

You'll still be able to access them via the Internet Archive (aka WayBack Machine) once they go dead. Just paste any of those links into http://archive.org.

All these are avalaible on Wayback Machine.You need only copy and paste the relative address on web.archive.orgI hope this will be useful to someone in the future.

A little note... From KB94XXXX i have founded only last five in my list.The strange thing is that all these five are still avalaible from Microsoft (!) :dubbio: and their have been saved by Wayback Machine only 1 time on marzo 10, 2016, i.e. today! What do you think?
