Default Source for SP3 for WinXP Pro

Hi,

A friend has WinXP Pro SP2 on his PC. He searched
the web for SP3 for his version of WinXP. He asked me
for help. Note: I have WinXP Home Edition SP2.

Does anyone know a site where he can download
SP3 for WinXP Pro?

Thank you in advance, John

Ah, a "friend" who has WinXP SP-2 ... and you also with WinXP SP-2. ;-
Surely you are not the friend. (I know, stop calling you Shirley.)

https://www.google.com/search?q=wind...p-3%20download

2nd result points to:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...ice-pack-3-sp3

but the link to the download gives a page reporting "We're sorry, this
download is no longer available." Well, you and your friend already
knew that Microsoft dropped support for Windows XP quite a while ago
(extended support ended back on April 8, 2014).

Searching online yields download candidates but from non-Microsoft
sites; e.g., https://windows-xp-service-pack-3.en.softonic.com/,
https://windows-xp-service-pack-3.soft32.com/ (and, yep, found using an
online search on "service pack 3 windows xp rtm network installation").

It must take a very long time to download a 33gb file, even on a fast
connection.....

I suppose that any of us who intend to keep using XP, should download
and save this file, but I cant see myself spending a whole day at a WIFI
to download it.

When numbers get that large, I lose count on them...

Yea, it's 330meg. Thats no problem. I have downloaded movies that size
and even larger using WIFI. Probably took me 10 or 15 minutes.

Hi,
I have been sending your replies (Copy/Paste in emails) to this Ham
radio friend of mine, but he did not let me know (I asked him to let me know)
the outcome.

The next time I talk to him on the air (I am a Ham too, N3AOF), I will
ask him.
Again, Thanks for your replies, John

One problem with the MS download site is if you don't have SP3, it
won't let you download anything. Try getting it on an updated machine
and then applying it on the old one.

The link I gave, works in any browser. Or, you could use wget or curl
if you want. And the number on the end is an official checksum,
so you can run your MD5 or SHA1 or SHA256 checker after the download
finishes.

http://download.windowsupdate.com/ms...2300ebfde4.exe

Even if you were running SP2, the browser isn't going to care particularly
when you enter that link.

And I use WinXP with catalog.update.microsoft.com, to fetch updates
for various Win10 VMs, and I don't have a problem doing stuff
like that, in preparation for updating a VM as efficiently as possible.

There's plenty of stuff on the MS site which is "modal", and returns
bad results in a browser. But this isn't one of them. Just about
every MS help page I click, results in browser indigestion.

Hi Paul and Everybody,

I am SORRY for posting the, "Source for SP3....." message in order to
help a Ham "friend" of mine. I just contacted (12-21-17) him on the radio and
asked him if he was able to download SP3 after I sent him, in email, your
replies. To my DISAPOINTMENT, he said he did not get around to it
yet!!!!

Thanks again for all your help, John

Hi Paul and Everybody,

UPDATE:

This Ham friend finally tried the following (below) and he told me via
email that it "worked great". He also wants to THANK everybody for
their responses.

John

331,805,736 bytes

http://download.windowsupdate.com/ms...2300ebfde4.exe

The number at the end of that filename,
is the SHA1 checksum. I just ran SHA1 on my
year 2009 download of SP3, and it's the
same number.
Paul
