Cannot Download KB2756822, KB2749655 and KB2661254 for XP

    Question

  • We apply and test selected WSUS updates and then download the tested ones and supply them to our regions for testing.  These 3 updates, KB2756822, KB2749655 and KB2661254, do not provide the option to download, just to apply directly.  Any suggestions how to physically download them?

    HUH?

    Can you provide some more explicit detail on exactly what you are doing? Downloading updates occurs automatically as a result of *approving* the updates, so I totally do not understand the question concerning not providing the option to download -- that's not an option that's selectable, it happens automatically -- so I really don't understand what you mean by "how to physically download them".

    I also do not understand what you mean by "apply directly".

  • each of these KB's is available via the MU catalog, eg:
    http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=KB2749655%20xp

    or via MS DLC, eg:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2756822

    I'm not sure what issue you are experiencing?
    Are these updates not appearing at your WSUS console after a sync?
    Do you have the necessary products and classifications enabled for sync?

  • The first option does nothing for me... the second, once I go to the 32-bit XP option gives me only the option to "CONTINUE" for that update, which then forwards me to a page to apply the Genuine Validation Component...

    We do have an outdated process, due in part to remote outposts (literally) that sometimes require physically sending updates due to network limitations.  We do need to download patches.  We sync to our test area, then dwnload patches to have them available internally.

    The first option? Do you mean the MU catalog? What do you mean it does nothing for you?
    Does it not display the updates for you? (You will need to install the ActiveX control for the catalog when prompted)
    You can use the catalog to find updates. Generally, if an update is listed in the MU catalog, it will be available via WSUS, and mostly, available via SUM in CM. (there are some exceptions to this, but not many)
    You can use the MU ActiveX control to download the update cabfiles and import them into WSUS.
    I often use the MU catalog to check the metadata for an update (is is in the catalog, what classification it is, supersedence etc)

    As for the MS DLC, yes, some updates will require genuine validation before the DLC will permit download, and yes, this requires you to install the genuine validation components on the PC performing the download.

    Hello, perhaps a method could be clarified to allow direct download (not install from web) of the XP x32 update

    (Update for Windows XP (KB2756822)
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=161f1e17-8787-490c-8c13-3dfc182269e0

    My scenario is to download the update and apply to an isolated machine which has no internet or WSUS system access.

  • have you tried:

    1) on in internet connected PC, browse to the MS DLC link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=161f1e17-8787-490c-8c13-3dfc182269e0

    2) perform genuine validation

    3) select the download you need

    4) save the downloaded update package(s) to suitable physical media

    5) transport the physical media to the isolated site

    6) install/apply the update package(s) to the necessary computers, ensuring to comply with the licensing terms.

    7) repeat as required :)
