What's included in the release - mostly all the important security / component updates. The extras release has a few more
items. Most people compare AutoPatcher with WU/MU to see what may be missing, if it is important we try to add it - look
at the Hotfix Depot to get an idea - Windows XP SP3 x86 Hotfix Depot
Note: I guess the Hotfix Depot details are being updated so the page is rather bland at the moment.
AutoPatcher updates a system with the given service pack in place - meaning - the service pack is a requirement and
not an included update in the release.
They (service packs) are not included mostly due to the size. APUP wont resume a broken download (it restarts at the beginning)
so unless you have a very fast connection it may be impossible to complete the download due to an error in the connection, a
disconnect on a dialup connection etc.
So I will leave it at - install your OS - install the latest service pack - download the AutoPatcher release for your given OS
and service pack level ie: Windows XP SP3 x86.
Service Pack 3 For XP (x86) Network Installation Package
Just in case you are unsure of how to use APUP.
How To Download/Run APUP
A word of Caution: This is my opinion - when updating a fresh OS install...
When using AutoPatcher to update your system - Don't check everything for installation all at the same time - your asking for trouble.
Be logical - meaning - install important components first, preferably one at a time (remember I said this is my opinion - others disagree)
IE7 or IE8 first - reboot, then .Net Framework (a separate release package) - reboot... and so on. The point being, you want to know the
updates were installed properly before you move ahead - also some updates have issues (require IE) unless the proper version of IE is
installed. Ultimatley it is your choice.
