Default Looking for WindowsXP KB955704

Does anyone have WindowsXP-KB955704-x86-ENU.exe

I need it to read 64GB SD cards on my XP netbook, and that includes
the card in my camera.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/955704 would be the place to
go, and several webpages point there, but it doesn't have it anymore.
It has these, including XP 64 bit!!!

The following files are available for download from the Microsoft
Download Center:
Update for Windows XP, x64-based version
Download the WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB955704-x64-ENU.exe package
now.
Update for Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2, x86-based version
Download the WindowsServer2003-KB955704-x86-ENU.exe package now.

Server 2003 Service Pack 2, ia64-bsed version
Download the WindowsServer2003-KB955704-ia64-ENU.exe package now.

Why does it have 64-bit but not 32bit. Can I use the server2003 file?
Or I'm hoping one of you has it stored where it was first dl'd. Is
that the Windows directory?

Backtrack using the archive.

I won't bore you with the details. Here is your link. The
file is not at this address on the Microsoft site, but is stored
on archive.org.

https://web.archive.org/web/20150602...04-x86-ENU.exe

And I've noticed this trend elsewhere. Some hillbillies think it's
funny to remove the link for the x86 version of WinXP, because
"WinXP isn't supported any more", then leave the x64 one sitting
there (which hardly anyone needs) because... well, who knows.
Because it's what hillbillies and web monkeys do I guess.

The 955704 is also *not* listed on the catalog server.

You did it again, Paul. Thank you.

I went to the netbook which has Agent and I dl'd the 3000 posts, I
think it was, in this ng since last September, so I just clicked on
this link and it downloaded, then I ran it, then I had to restart
windows, then I connected the camera, and it saw all the photos on the
card. No suggestion about formatting. So simple once you gave me
the link.

And I've noticed this trend elsewhere. Some hillbillies think it's
funny to remove the link for the x86 version of WinXP, because
"WinXP isn't supported any more", then leave the x64 one sitting


I thought "isn't supported" meant they weren't going to work on
problems, not that they'd take files away from us, just because we
hadn't dl'd them yet.

there (which hardly anyone needs) because... well, who knows.
Because it's what hillbillies and web monkeys do I guess.


I guess so. What happens when one of each mate with each other?

The 955704 is also *not* listed on the catalog server.


I don't know what the catalog server is. Does that mean even the 64
bit people can't get a copy?

BTW1, I do know about the Wayback machine but I very rarely think of
it, expecially wrt files, as opposed to the appearance of pages. That
guy must have some incredibly big harddrives. "491 billion web pages
saved over time" and a very underplayed, one word "DONATE". My gosh,
there are 170 people working on this! I gave him a small amount.

BTW2, earlier when I was trying to resolve this, I looked in the
Windows directory of the netbook, and though for some silly reason I
had deleted all the KB uninstall programs from the desktop (before it
broke) I have loads of empty space on the netbook so they were all
there. Quite a few KB's with numbers higher than 955704, but not
that one. In fact most of the numbers are missing because they were
never suggested by windows update. They really have a lot of nerve
deleting this.

BTW3, I would have had to scale back to 32gig, and though 64 gig will
hold 15,000 photos, more than I will probably take in 50 years, I want
it to be big, just in case I see something worth video-recording. I
would hate to run out of memory in the middle of a big news story.
(The camera says it will take a maximum of 20 minutes, but I can do
that over and over.) Googling, I see that for hi-def video from 24
to 6 mbps, I can get between 640 to 1440 minutes. That's over 6 hours
to 24 hours, minus whatever I've already used for still photos. Though
I don't actually know how to convert what the camera manual says into
any of these values. Still, that should be enough to record until I
fall asleep.

Thanks again, for having the patience to read 'til the end.

Micky

Apparently mpeg-4 Part10 1280x720 is equal 3 mbps so I'll be able to
shoot video for 48 hours. But who's going to watch it.

But SD cards are so cheap now, as low as 8 dollars for 32, and 18 for
64GB.

Hey, this means I can get the big one for the slot in the netbook. I'd
been thinking so much about the camera, I forgot about that.

Yes, USB and SD here have been below 25p/G for a while, at least for
USB2 (most larger ones are USB3 anyway now), so I'm not surprised
they're under 25c/G there. Watch for speed though - probably OK for
stills, but not necessarily for video - or were the prices you are
quoting for higher-speed cards too?

Do you mean to extend the memory? Some years ago, I heard that (they
were talking about USB sticks rather than cards, but I suspect the same
may apply) that they could die in as little as a few hours if used to
give more memory, because of the repeated reading and writing; however,
if you mean just for data storage, that's probably OK (though I still
feel uncertain about using card or stick rather than HD for long-term
storage, because of the suddenness of its usual failure modes).

Yes, class 10. In another ng, someone warned me about that, but
thanks for the warning.

Thanks. I'll make a point not to do that. I don't know what I had
in mind, considering I've only used 60 of the 160 gigs on the hdd.***
if you mean just for data storage, that's probably OK (though I still
feel uncertain about using card or stick rather than HD for long-term
storage, because of the suddenness of its usual failure modes).


So cards and sticks both fail suddenly in the same way? On the last
trip, I only used a flashdrive twice, for taking things to a place
that had computers to rent, so that the guy could print out a lettter,
which I wanted to mail rather than email. That was certainly easier
with a flash drive than with an SD card, so maybe I have no use for a
card after all. "Why do you climb mountains? Because they're
there." Why do I want a card in the card slot? Because it's there.

OTOH the camera and the phone are designed entirely around an SD card.


***(Come to think of it, I've only used 60 of the 75 gigs** on this
computer, where I do 10 or 100 times as much. I wonder why they're
both 60 gigs. Only 75 total HDD storage on the desktop because it
was a friend's business computer, where his staff was probably only
supposed to run a word processor and the proprietary software he uses
to run his security alarm business****, so they sell "business" models
which don't have much storage or much ram. He has three work stations
and also a server I think)

**That's why I'm trying to move to a bigger computer, before the HDD
fills up more.

****When a customer had alarm problems, like he couldn't set the
alarm, my friend used to have to go out there, maybe 20 or more miles,
maybe late at n ight. Now he just phones into the alarm board in the
customer's location and if a door switch won't close, he disables the
switch without leaving his chair, at his office or at home.

Paul this is Lou and I want to thank you for directing me to the ExFat download for WinXP 32 bit. I never knew about it until I bought a one terebyte flash drive and could not use it. By the way there is a separate Exfat download for Linux. It will be provided if you ask software manager for it; unlike Micro$oft.

Many thanks. I run XP in a VirtualBox VM in OS X so I can run exactly one piece of W32-bit application software and not have to upgrade to another version of Windows. I left Windows behind for good when I ceased consulting to Windows-centric clients. But, during those years I accumulated lots and lots of files (C and Perl source, .doc and .xls) that I don't wish to lose. I intend to backup those files on a RAID appliance with an exFAT volume. So, I have a removable USB disk I wish to format exFAT to be compatible with OS X and the RAID appliance. Could not get this download from the clueless folks at MS, who just want to argue with you about "you fool, why are you still running XP." It's none of their ****ing business why I choose which OS to run, but it would cost them virtually nothing to keep those downloads available, particularly since they continue to support the 64-bit version. Go figure... Thanks again and to web.archive.org.
