 :down: I have a Vista laptop that refuses to install kb943899. *

So I wanted to download the update manually from Microsoft. This was not allowed, unless I would pass Windows genuine Advantage.

You get to download the infamous tool so you can copy paste the code to prove I was genuine.

BUT nowadays that tool has become obsolete! So the tool won't run :( So no code to paste, so no update to manually download :(

WTF?  :'(

Anyone? :)


Karma,

Devvie

LOL - smart thinking and I bet you are right. I checked, and it's still at SP0 after the system restore  ; - ) And as long as not ALL updates are installed, the SP will not come...

So will do that with the offline installers for system administrators (startpage.com it).*

No reposts? Problem solved ;p

Karma!!

No dice - I'm on Vista SP2 now...

Roughly translated, this is the error message when running GenuineCheck.exe:

This version of the Windows Genuine Advantage validation program is no longer supported. Download the newest version and make sure your system clock is correct.

 :down:

Sigh... Shoot to kill,

Ok,

It seems Microsoft is screwing up big time :(

From different pages, through: https://www.google.nl/search?q=This+version+of+the+Windows+Genuine+Advantage+validation+program+is+no+longer+supported.+Download+the+newest+version

DO:
- do not use Chrome or Firefox - use Internet Explorer (http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/666558d1-1205-4919-be7e-c351a91268af/i-need-newer-version-of-windows-genuine-advantage-geniunecheckexe-for-xp)
AND ALSO DO:
- copy link URL and change the URL as follows:
"When you go to a download page, you arrive at a page like http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14
If you now click on the Continue button on the page, MS currently sends you to the wrong place.
The workaround is to amend the existing URL by inserting 'genuine-validation' instead of 'details' in your download page URL
So for the one above: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14 becomes http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/genuine-validation.aspx?id=14 "

and

"In my case there was a slight variance.  I was seeing "exe-validation" instead of "details".  But changing it to "genuine-validation" sent it to the right place.  "

No karma here, except maybe for Samker ; )
