updating sp3 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have restored a drive image on a hdd because of a drive failure. The os is xp sp3. The image is at least a year old and of course there have been numerous hotfixes etc. Can I download the standalone sp3 package and will it have the latest hotfixes etc. on it to avoid installing about 100 updates?

  • The Service Pack 3 for Windows XP you download is the same as the one posted when it was released.  You will have download and install updates published since SP3 was released - all 100 or so updates.
