Archived ⇒ Windows XP Service Pack 3 RC


Hi.
Am I the only one using Windows XP SP 3 RC?
The build number is 3244.

I haven't actually noticed anything, but has it increased perfomance for you?

Thank you diz for the link.. I was hoping it wasnt a hack.
When I googled for it all I found were hacks also.

So the topic should be, SP3 RC HACK ... lol if you have to hack your registry to install it, then its not offical, in my opinion.

Its a private download for beta testers only and Microsoft previously said it plans to release the final version of XP SP3 in the first quarter of 2008.

Yes, the hack was privately given out from Microsoft but was and still is intended for beta testers only.

Will the hack work on a Win 2000 Pro SP4? Laughing

No, I downloaded the actual install package from torrent. It installs without any hassle or hacks at all.

Beware, there is NO uninstalling RC patches when FINAL is released. If you PLAN to upgrade install SP3, then DO NOT install this patch, wait for the official release.

This patch is for private beta testers only and has a new tracking code that reports with windows live to track installation and usage. You are being spied on 'so to speak'.

SP3 will also introduce more changes that you may not like. Check out the MVP blogs for serious opinions/flames/trolls/etc.

I got "Windows XP Service Pack 3" and Add or Remove Programs list and it actually asked during the installation for backup of original system files, so SP3 could be uninstalled.
Or did I misunderstood you?

Just because the 'remove programs' entry is there (I do assume the MS will allow one to remove a 'official release; SP, but it's never clean...) did you try? You will find much of the updated system files will now be fully protected forcing advanced replacement. I broke one test box trying this, forcing a repair/install to restore it.

This is typical of RC releases, nothing new.

Now they may provide a upgrade from RC to offical, but I'm not aware of any at this time. Maybe someone else may be aware of such a thing.
