Also, I made sure all IE8 downloads and all the Service Pack 3 download were available.

Seems that this python script should handle the bulk link archiving. It shouldn't skip links if there's an overload (the log argument with level set should imply it), but doesn't hurt to do multiple passes with this tool

I ask because Vista is affected by that and daniel_k has scrapped on Aug last year the update links for them, and since vista is less popular than xp, it would be best to also archive the links somehow.

Can someone start a new thread and at least list those files? Seems that if someone had the list of files from Server 2008 that worked in Vista, after MS killed Vista, that'd be nice too.

Let me clarify:

Links, list the links.

FYI, you can still get WU to work on "POS 2009" (note those quotes :lol:)

I forget the exact steps, but after you install all the updates (from above), you'll definitely need:

http://download.windowsupdate.com/windo ... .6-x86.exe

Oh shit! Don't bother with that download (the update agent), MS apparently broke this today. It's odd, the website loads, but doesn't seem to do anything after. LOL, I guess a few spots on the internet, techtalk.cc included, are now the source for updating old XP. If the actual downloads start disappearing, let us know.
Well, suddenly, it's working again.
