Service Pack 3 and XP Pro x64

    Question

  • Hi,

    I downloaded XP SP3 from here.
    However, I noticed that Pro x64 is not listed in the system requirements and that the file name has x86 in it.

    Is there a version of XP SP3 for x64 or will the above release be able to install/slipstream into Pro x64? If there's a separate version, could someone direct me to it's location on the Download Centre? No Windows Update please, I like the full packages.

  • Entegy,

     

    SP3 is for XP x32, and is not for XP x64. Windows Server 2003 SP2 is for XP x64.

  • Is Microsoft going to come out with a x64 SP3?  Just wondering because I have a box that can use that SP.

  • I wouldn't count on it.  It looks like Microsoft is putting all their eggs in baskets called Vista x64 and Windows 2003 Server.  Those of us with Windows XP Pro x64 are orphans waiting for the few nibbles that we get from Microsoft.

  • Thomas Lee explained this back in 2008.

    SP3 is for XP x32, and is not for XP x64. Windows Server 2003 SP2 is for XP x64.

      XP x64 is based on the code for Windows Server 2003. SP1 for XP x86 was already released when Server 2003 come out, so SP1 for Server 2003 and XP x64 correspond to XP x86 SP2. Similarly SP2 for XP x64 corresponds to SP3 for XP x86. There will never be an SP3 for x64 just as there will never be an SP4 for the x86 version.

      If you have SP2 installed on XP x64 you are already at the same level as XP x86 SP3.
