Hope this alleviates confusion.

1. Click the link. It's a KB article.

2. On the KB article page, choose the download link for your OS.

3. Try to download it.

It's a known glitch that's being addressed. For now, need to open the URL in IE so it can use the non-exe validation tool.

For example, from your page linked above, the x86 Windows 7 version links me to this in Firefox:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/exe-validation.aspx?id=34914[/CODE]

Change it to this and open in IE (swap exe for genuine if the forum truncates it..):

[CODE]http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/genuine-validation.aspx?id=34914[/CODE]

And it let me download it.

Worked for me ! Downloaded Windows6.1-KB2756822-x64 and ran it. It said I already had the update on my computer.

You must have used a URL trick. GenuineCheck.exe has been broken for about 6 months. Maybe longer. My memory betrays me.

Who cares! It's out of date crap anyway.

XP is dead. It's time to move on.

no I did not do any url tricks -- I clicked the url off the page you linked too.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=c5f25ba8-fcaa-4436-b5ab-8725b00e74bc

But seems that embedded url on the top - I did not catch that before did not require validation. When I went down the page and found the normal validation one it does fail.
