Microsoft is determined to bury Windows XP SP4 Download and has stopped releasing updates this year. However, Windows XP SP4 Download still has a large army of loyal fans who are happy with the status quo. Moreover, independent developers even try to maintain the system themselves.
Almost five months have passed since the date of the official “end of life” (end of life, EoL) of Windows XP, but de facto death has not yet occurred.
Now, unofficial support for Windows XP is on the rise. A Greek developer named harkaz on the RyanVM.net forum has been working for almost a year on creating a service pack that can be installed on any machine running Windows XP SP1/2/3 (x86).
Windows XP SP4 Download includes all updates and many of the updated system components. For example, in June 2014, Windows XP SP4 Unofficial Beta 2 was released, which contains the following updated components: .NET Frameworks 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, MSXML40 SP3, Adobe Flash Player 13 (May 2014), IE8, WMP11 , Bitlocker To Go, XPS Viewer EP, Windows Search 4.0 (disabled by default), IMAPIv2, Remote Desktop Connection Client 7.0, exFat update, Windows Installer 4.5, QFECheck, WGA (notifications disabled by default), Windows Feature Pack for Storage 1.0, revoked digital certificates, Windows Rights Management Client, DirectX 9.0c, DirectX for Managed code (included in .NET Framework 3.5), WebDAV update for Office 12 (Rosebud).
The service pack automatically makes a change in the registry with the addition of a line
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\WPA\PosReady], after which it installs updates. By the way, Microsoft promises support for Windows XP Embedded until 2019, so Windows XP on desktops will last a long time.
