Hi Guys,

Is there any services that I need turned on for my XPHome to take updates? The updates download from Windows site, but it does not install successfully. I do have quite a few services turned off on this machine. I am thinking it might be a service.

Thanks in advance.

windows update fails to install if you have one of the services turned off, i think it may be a windows installation one and/or one of the encryption ones. cant check as im not at home.

Cryptographic Services and Automatic Updates must be running in order for the updates to install.

Thanks, Muzikool

I do know that Automatic Updates actually doesn't need to be turned on (I like to manually take care of that), but I did not know about the Cryptographic Service.......

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
