Updating windows xp home to windows xp professional
The problem is my registry doesn't have a (Windows Update\AU) How can I fix that. williamp, i am using windows xpsp3 and i don't have the regkey that you mentioned on my computer.. go into windows "services" and make sure that the "automatic updates" service and the "background intelligent transfer service" are enabled..
both of those "services" have to be enabled in order for windows automatic updates to work, and for being able to use the "microsoft update" website to install windows updates.. now that i see that you are installing "win xpsp3" on the computer, i assume that you will have to install a lot of additional windows updates, after that.. I now have SP3 but it still won't scan for updates on Windows Update site. How do I enable the background intelligent transfer service?
This doesn’t install or add all the features from Windows XP Professional, such as Remote Desktop Server (Install Remote Desktop on XP Home) and Group Policy Editor (GPedit) utility tools, which was removed from Windows XP Home edition.The latest update is the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update which is now available on general release (17 October) and comes packed full of features including improvements to its mobile experience and creative capabilities.
