    How to download all Hotfixes for XP-Pro SP2 for later use?

    Hi, I have been looking at ways to distribute prebuilt XP Pro SP2 (Volume Edition) , one of these ways using "nLite" require me to have all the Hotfixes downloaded ready to be slipstreamed into the build.

    How exactly do I download all hot fixes? I have had a look at

    http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/catalog

    Which seems like half of the answer I need, but I am not sure how to filter XP Pro hotfixes. Is there a list (somewhere) of what must be downloaded? How can I be sure I have everything?

    Best Regards.
    Roland

    Windows Updates Downloader

    Have a look at the Heise offline update tool - now that Autopatcher is gone (RIP ) it's the next best thing IMHO. Fire it up, it downloads all XP updates from the MS site then creates an ISO image of a disk ready to install them automatically for you (not slipstreamed media, an autopatcher style updater) - however, you could opt to not create the disk and just use the downloaded updates in your nLite build.
