[access-uk] Re: Windows XP SP2

I thought it was possible to order an SP2 CD from Microsoft?

Hi Andrew

The installation for professionals is only for multiple computers and it sent me to Windows Update. That will only install onto the machine that is connected to the site, which is mine. I realise now I can't connect to the net with my wife's machine until I get an operating system and I can't get that until I have SP2. I'm lost now.

Roger,

You can download the SP2 installation Setup file here:

Hi All

The wife's laptop has just died so today a new one arrived but
without any operating system installed. I have a legit copy of  XP
Home I've not used so I loaded that. At the end of the installation
it asked for the SP2 disc. I haven't got one. She doesn't intend to
have internet connection using mine for that. I've tried to take it
off my machine but it seems when my system is updated no file is left
on Downloads or anywhere I can find. I've tried to download a copy
but again it will install it to my machine but allow me a copy. Short
of connecting my wife's machine to the net just for the download of
the application I can't see any other way forward. Unless someone
here can help me please. As she doesn't intend to use the machine on
the net she doesn't need SP2 but it will not allow me to proceed
without it.
