Just run the SP2 executable, it should not change your configuration.

I need to reinstall SP2 over genuine XP reinstallation. This pack is now unavailable from Microsoft.


Windows XP SP3 comes separately with its own registration key. No previous versions are needed for a fresh install. Update packs are also available in many websites.

Wrt54g2 wireless doesn't get past the acquiring network address point.I'm using wpa2 with aes - wireless configuration is manual.


Unfortunately you did not give more information, so I 'm taking a wild guess here. If this solution does not solve you problem, let me know.

If you are running Windows XP SP1 or SP2, update the operating system to XP Service Pack 3 for best WPA/WPA2 support.

XP Service Pack 1 computers do not support WPA by default and cannot support WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP1 computer to support WPA (but not WPA2), either
  • install the "Windows XP Support Patch for Wi-Fi Protected Access" (link) from Microsoft, or
  • upgrade the computer to XP SP2
XP Service Pack 2 computers by default support WPA but not WPA2.

To upgrade an XP SP2 computer to also support WPA2, install the "Wireless Client Update for Windows XP SP2" (link) from Microsoft.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Can't use VPC-CG9 as PC camera.


I don't know why this wouldn't work on Vista HP, but this excerpt from the manual suggests that your XP SP1 Pro would not work without the SP2 rollup:

"Please perform the following upgrades before connecting the camera to a computer.
-Upgrade Windows XP to SP2.
Install Windows XP SP2.
-Install Windows Messenger 5.0 or later version.
Download Windows Messenger 5.0 or later version, and install it.
-If using MSN Messenger, please install MSN Messenger 7.0 or later
version."

Perhaps if you are following the steps exactly in the manual and it still does not work, upgrading Messenger will magically help.

Upgrading the OS Windows XP not possible


Upgrading from OS Windows XP:

you can upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista(ultimate, premium, home, business.......),
you have to buy a Windows Vista CD and install a fresh copy or format.

Some Minimum Requirements:

i) Min 2GB RAM or atleast 1GB RAM(if you have>1GB RAM installation of Windows Vista will not continue)

II) External Graphic Card. for some versions of Windows Vista(to run Aero Interface, special feature only   in some versions of Windows Vista)

NOTE:

"Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor" is a software from Microsoft which you can download from internet, this  can help you determine which features and edition of Windows Vista will run on your computer. 

 i.e., when u load this software on windows xp it will suggest which upgrade version of windows vista          will suit your system(based on you system configuration. or hardware components.) and then            you can install the upgraded version of windows xp(mostly windows vista home,.........)


Thanking You

If upgrading an existing PC to Windows XP from an earlier versionof Windows, Canon recommends a "clean install" to ensure reliableoperation of drivers. If a clean install is not possible, it isessential that drivers for your existing Canon Hardware are UNINSTALLEDprior to upgrading to Windows XP. After the installation of Windows XP,the drivers for your Canon Hardware can then be re-installed. Canon has released a software utility to uninstall USB and SCSI Scanner drivers for this purpose. Click here to download this utility.It is recommended to consult our Driver Downloads page and use the latest driver for your product. Canon supports several scanner models with Windows XP. Windows XPsupport is offered for Windows XP Home Edition, and Windows XPProfessional.The following older models are not compatible with Windows XPdue to hardware design: IX-3010, IX-4015, IX-4025, CS 300S, FB310,FB61

Uninstall WIN XP PRO UPGRADE


Unfortunately you cannot "Uninstall an Upgrade" - Do you refer "Upgrade to SP2/ SP3 or WIN98 or WIN2000 to WIN XP? Please clarify? Regardless - you will have to reformat your PC and purchase a new license key as you have used the one on another PC or you should void the license on that PC and use it on the original PC.
In short unless you do not use the license key or purchase a new one, your PC will not log-in after 30 days and you will then have to activate again using telephonic assitance (if you modem and internet connection were no configured before the end of you activation period. There is now Un-install function. Sorry.
