Attempting to save Windows Update Agent to a CD
Just updated my wife's computer with XP SP2 and SP3. (Thanks to all who
got me through that). The computer is not yet connected to the internet
so I can't download directly to that computer. To obtain a needed file,
I must download to my computer and copy to a CD. Then I can install on
my wife's computer from the CD.

I'm attempting to obtain a download of Windows Update Agent. Checking on
www.support.microsoft.com I cannot find a way to download the file and
save to a CD. The only option I can find indicates that this is only
installed on the accessing computer.

Is there some way I can download this program and copy to a CD?

Re: Attempting to save Windows Update Agent to a CD
As the old saying goes, if you have to ask, it's an x86 machine. (x64
Edition would've cost you a *whole* lot more!)

How to determine whether a computer is running a 32-bit version or a 64-bit
version of the Windows operating system:
