Windows XP SP3 with BITS 2.0 Installed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have several (165) machines that have Windows XP SP3 installed but have bits 2.0.

    I have checked BITS's version using the QMgr.dll version as in this link:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa362837(v=vs.85).aspx

    When I try to install BITS 2.5

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923845

    I get a message saying that this KB is not needed as SP3 is installed:

    Setup has detected that the Service Pack version of this system is newer than the update you are applying. There is no need to install this update.

    But really BITS 2.0 is not installed. The exe installer seems to not have any options to force the install.

    Any ideas on what to try next?

    Thanks
