download all the updates after SP2 and write them to cd

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics,microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

I want to download all the updates after SP2 and write them to cd

I remember vaguely that there was a way to do this from the
windowsupdate.com site

pressing some links, but when I do this now, I cannot find the place to
download.

PS. I am interested in the updates for the Greek version of XPSP2


THANKS

    At Windows Update go to the administrator options and then the Windows
    Update Catalog

    Hello, You may not have accessed the right WindowsXP SP2. I believe there
    are two on the supplied list. Take a look and see if there is another listing
    of WindowsXP sp2, second from the bottom of the list supplied in the window
    that opened.
    Take Care.
    beamish.

    As stated by Mike B.
    Go to Windows Update>Use Administrator Options (bottom left)>Windows Update
    Catalog>Then you will have 3 options, the 2 you want are 1: Find update for
    Windows OS's 2: Find driver updates for hardware

    Choose Find updates for Windows OS's, then you will have to choose the OS
    you want the updates for.

    I think you will find what you want from here :

    the above is correct; follow the instructions carefully and you'll get
    there.

    but there are a lot of updates (over 100, 54 critical or better), and some
    superceed others. so it can be confusing to find the ones you actually
    need, and the proper order in which to apply them.

    you might want to take a look at this:

    http://www.autopatcher.com/

    click the "download" link, it takes you to the forum thread re:
    installation. again, read carefuly!

    here's a related product:

    http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?s=a1ac3d0e67f563d8a4d2eca8be83700b&showtopic=188337&st=0&#entry2453585

    And if memory serves there are other tools that do this same sort of
    thing, google for 'em.

    Yeah, I just find that the Windows Update Catalog makes it difficult to
    figure out which patches you really need. I much prefer the Security
    Bulletin Search http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/current.aspx
    as you can narrow the search down to the patches to what you really need
    and filter out patches that have been replaced by later patches. Or you
    can just look at the list I created that have direct links to the files
    on MS's Server.

    http://www.kurttrail.com/microscum/postsp2

    No need to muck around trying to figure out anything.
