    Default Windows Service Pack 3

    Hello Forumfallers.

    I have a quick question.

    I'm trying to download SP3 for my brothers computer, so he can run GTAIV.
    The problem is, that when i go to the windows update site, it recognises that i am running Vista and that i'm up to date.

    Does anybody know a way around this so i can just download the files and transfer them to his PC which is running XP?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I don't think they do a stand alone version, they want to check you have a valid copy before they fuck up your network card drivers.

    I'm sure there could be a version that you could download from somewhere or other but if i knew telling you anymore would result in brannoc swooping down and tearing out my eyes like a legal eagle.

    Use your brother's PC to download SP3. OMG I know, it took me 2 hours of brainstorming to think of that solution.

    think they might post you a CD with it on if you ask them... not sure tho you will have to check the site, think i saw something about that. I could be wrong tho as i have been awake for 38 hours :/

    Where is your PC? Where is your brother's PC? Does your PC use a wired or wireless connection?

    If his PC is in the same house as yours, plug your UTP cable into his PC.

    EDIT: Hah, nvm, you're 28. I'd hope you don't live with him.

    All i can find on the MS official site is some sp3 proffessional pack. But it says only to get that one if your upgrading multiple PCs. And if you're only updating one, then you should go straight to the update thing. Obviously though, when i do that it says i am up to date and should die in a fire or something like that.
