Windows Update not working
I uninstalled XP SP2 to get some programs to install and work correctly, but
now the Windows Update will not install anything. Running XP professional.

Re: Windows Update not working
And have you reinstalled SP2 yet? SP2 must be installed before you can use
Windows Update or Automatic Update to install any other updates.

Re: Windows Update not working
Thanks for your info. SP2 could not be installed, as it only installs as a
Windows Update, and that would not work. Through further investigation, I
found a MS support article that did the trick - had to register the Wups2.dll
file in Windows. Whatever that did, it allowed 15 up[dates to be installed,
then SP2, then a whole bunch of others.

Re: Windows Update not working
[Installing SP2 manually via the link I posted would've resolved everything.
You needn't have installed any of the first 15 updates, just SP2 and all
post-SP2 updates.]
