Everyone is talking about Vista SP1, what about SP3 for XP?

I just installed it and so far so good, no problems. Anyone else installed it?

The only thing I noticed is that it trashed most of the custom themes the XPSP2 install installed but otherwise it seems to be fine.

They just released a refresh build of XPSP3 RC2

Well it most likely puts a new uxtheme.dll in there I guess?

XP SP3 doesn't have anything in there that should stop it being immediately deployed. I will need to do a bit of messing around (extra nic driver, raid driver for single disk intel array - muppets) and then it should be good to go on our network.

Then I will be stopping my work on XP deployment for ever and ever, handing it to someone else in time for the e-series :p

I used a customized XPSP2 that included loads of themes. Though as EP said I think that is what it did, updated the uxtheme.dll and I've gotten contact with the person who made the customized install I used to inform him of that but figure it will be a while before it gets fixed and unless I do something to really fubar the install I can live without the themes

found this in my travels

I have been using Neowin's Multipatcher for along time, yet not updated for SP3. So I searched around google and found a hacked uxtheme.dll files and used replacer to replace my version, worked great.

Was easy enough to slipstream that one :)
I integrated every hotfix I could into the SP2 build we have and it must take 10-15 mins longer to install.
