    Hi,

    Does anyone know how to make this app work? I´ve downloaded the Update Lists, but now what? The app still can´t find them. :rolleyes:

    Btw, because I´m always having problems with Windows Update (you need to enable some stupid services and even then it sometimes won´t work :cautious: ), I was looking for a tool that could download updates from the M$ site. I really hate the Win Updates site, another sorry as$ product from M$. :thumbd:

    Hi,

    Thanks for the help, I already figured out what was the problem, on my machine I couldn´t extract the file, apparently it´s some zip file. Looks like a cool tool, it can show you exactly which patches you need, and which ones are already installed. But can we trust it? Also, I don´t see any MS Office XP security updates.

    You could try this UL for Office XP updates but its outdated.

    As for trust, the downloads come from Microsoft's servers :)
