Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Service Pack for PC

3 Answers

Windows update KB954430 is always in the queue to be installed.

For quite some time every time I shut down I am asked to install KB954430. While the machine is booted I see an icon in my tray that asks to install this same patch. I have watched the download progress window and have seen it say that installation was complete.

    Same thing here. It is persitent after reboot and after installing directly from MS update. It's annoying. Probably will hack it out but if someone has an easy fix, please let me know

    Same here, I looked for the update in the list of installed programs and updates but it is not to be found. Hope this gets solved soon.

    thanks

I had the same problem with Vista. You need to manually download the patch and run as administrator. It has worked several times with me. Try these steps:

  1. Download the patch KB954430 manually from microsoft. Save it temporarily on you're desktop. Just go to http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=96a4413c-5261-4f69-83d0-932c430abd14&displaylang=en

    or if you don't like clicking on links, google "KB954430" and click on the second link labeled "Download details: MSXML 4.0 Service Pack 2 (KB954430)" at microsoft.com.

  2. Close Internet Explorer
  3. Right click on the KB954430 installation file that was just downloaded to your desktop (msxml4-KB954430-enu.exe)
  4. Select 'Run as Administrator'
  5. If you are asked, select 'Run' then 'Continue'.
  6. Select 'Next'
  7. Click on the 'Remove' icon, then select 'Remove'
  8. Select 'Finish'
  9. Follow steps 3-6 again.
  10. Accept License Agreement then click 'Next'
  11. Click 'Next' again
  12. Click 'Install Now' icon
  13. Click 'Finish'
And you're done. Hope this helps.

Mike

There is a problem with the file msxml4.dll, it is not updating.
This needs to be renamed. Then download the KB954430 update file manually from Microsoft update. Install the update (it should be an executable .exe) and the problem should be fixed.

Here are the official Microsoft instructions.

To resolve this problem, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then press ENTER.
2. At the command prompt, type ren %windir%\System32\msxml4.dll msxml4.old, and then press ENTER.

Note After you press ENTER, you may receive the following error message.
Cannot find the file specified.
Ignore this message, and go to step 3.
3. At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER.
4. Visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.update.microsoft.com (http://www.update.microsoft.com)
5. Download and then install the latest MSXML security update.

Have you checked your programs install and remove in the control panel. If you have installed the patch, it should be in there.

Automatically Slipstream Windows XP SP3 plus Hotfixes usign scripts


Ross Smith has one of best methods available to create your self a slipstreamed Windows XP with SP3 installed and all the critical hotfixes, the only problem is that he stopped developing it in April 2009 so the list is about 40 hotfixes short, network installation SP3 version HERE

smithi's great script http://smithii.com/slipstream_xpsp3 please will you update it Ross ?

I also like using RVM Integrator v1.6.7 OR Autostreamer v1.0.30 to slipstream SP3 first to a folder containing the Windows XP SP2 I386 files this will give you a installation folder with all the SP3 files integrated.

Paul Thurrott's WinSupersite gives you a manual method if you prefer tutorial with screendumps HERE also how to exrtract the microsoft image file so that you can create your own bootable CD

Then download the Hotfixes EF2 list for use with using IDM from my public skydrive HERE is my exported list OR if you prefer use Windows Update Downloader and download one of the update lists, you must double click the ULZ file to install it into the interface, update lists HERE


N.B>these 2 won't slipstream, but they can be run after windows is installed:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/7/1/971f55c8-d512-494f-9c5e-7cc3f9b190ee/msxml4-KB954430-enu.exe

http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/7/5/2753aabc-24de-41be-a05b-d41fc76f3aad/msxml6-KB954459-enu-x86.exe

There are other alternatives like hfslip (similiar to smithi's script) and nLite + WinUpdateDownloader I have had limited success with both of them however there are alot of Program Addons available for nLite like WMP11 and IE8 and a whole list from MSFN available HERE

It Says "Installing Updates" but never shuts down


If you are updating windows xp and it says installing updates when you are shutting down your computer, you should let it finish, even if it tales overnight. depenind on how many updates you have, better to go to the updates web site and do it from there. after they have installed then you should be able to do a restart on your computer and compleate. Any thing ells you are best off contacting MicroSoft
