Windows XP Service Pack 3 is at long last now available for download. SP 3 includes all previously released updates and hot-fixes for the operating system.
This new update does bring with it some minor new functionalities but in no way changes the customer experience.
Windows XP SP 3 can be downloaded as a standalone executable from here. The installation package is 316 MB in size and is intended for IT professionals and developers downloading and installing on multiple computers on a network.
If you are updating just one computer please visit Windows Update. The best way to ensure you get Windows XP Service Pack 3 is by turning on the Automatic Updates feature in Windows XP.
Users running Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System (RMS) are advised to install a hotfix for a Microsoft Dynamics RMS issue prior to installing Windows XP SP3. Also if you are running IE 8 Beta 1 then it is recommended to uninstall it before updating to Service Pack 3 and then reinstall after you have successfully performed the update.
