I’m Proud to announce an autopatcher replacement. The Process isn’t as automated as autopatcher, this is to say you can’t just download one big file and have all the updates. Though that same luxury is what got autopatcher spanked in the first place.
The new process will require you to create your own file, but once you do you can reuse the file on many newly installed XP machines.
This new process has to do with the windows softwaredistribution folder (C:\windows\softwaredistrubution). This is the location where windows stores the automatic updates before it installs them. This is what the process entails. First create a fresh install of XP (preferable in vmware) set automatic updates to “Download updates for me, but let me choose when to install them”. Then wait until all 82 updates have been downloaded but do not install them. You then copy the contents of the softwaredistribution folder to a desired location and create a self extracting zip of the folder called “xpupdates.exe” that automatically extracts to c:\windows\softwaredistrubution. Once done you can use that self extracting exe on any fresh install XP machines requiring updates.
