In latest news Microsoft decided to delay XP Service Pack 3 due to
incompatibility with it's point-of-sale app – Dynamics Retail Management System (RMS).
But not all hope getting the RTM SP3 yet! As I'm sure very few of my readers ever used Dynamics and so I just found a solution to help you all out!
Guys from Xatrix Security wound a way:
- Download this file WindowsXPSP3Hack.cmd . Once you have downloaded the file, login as administrator and run the file by double clicking it. Wait for the Confirmation Message on screen.
- The Above file adds a few entries to the Windows Registry that makes Microsoft think that you are a part of the Private beta program.
- Check for new updates on Windows Update. You should now see Windows XP SP3 listed in the available updates.
- Download and install it. Reboot whenever necessary.
Please note this hack is the exact way Microsoft expects its beta testers to try Windows XP SP3 out, so you don’t have to worry too much about Microsoft catching hold of you.
In Case the batch file will be taken offline here are it's contents:
