Exclamation Re: Trouble in installing SP2

Service Pack 2 will not allow installation on a system which currently has a beta or release candidate version installed

The final Service Pack 2 will update some beta versions, such as those made available through public preview programs. However if you are trying to install the final SP2 onto a system which currently does not have SP2 build 2096 or 2138-2179 installation will be blocked. If this is the case you are trying to perform an unsupported upgrade and have 2 options. First to uninstall the beta build of SP2 currently installed.

The second is to get around the setup block. It is possible, but it is blocked for a reason! Your system may not work correctly or beta components may be left on the system. Do this at your own risk.

1) Go to Start > Run and type Regedit

2) Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

3) Delete the Keys CSDBuildNumber and CSDVersion

4) Run Service Pack 2 Setup

unsure Re: Trouble in installing SP2

The problem may because of:-

1. You are not running Windows XP or Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1). Windows Update offers Windows XP SP2 only to computers that can install Windows XP SP2. You may already be running Windows XP SP2, or you may be running another version of Windows.

2. You, or a system administrator, used a toolkit to temporarily block delivery of Windows XP SP2 to a computer from Automatic Updates or from Windows Update.
A third-party advertising program that is named T.V. Media is installed on your computer. (T.V. Media is from Total Velocity Corporation.) To help you avoid a failed Windows XP SP2 installation from Windows Update or from Automatic Updates, Microsoft have blocked the download of Windows XP SP2 to computers that have T.V.

There are some solution to get off of this problem. Try this:-

1. If you are already running Windows XP SP2, you will not see Windows XP SP2 on the Windows Update Web site.

If you are not sure if you are running Windows XP Service Pack 2, click Start, click Run, type winver, and then click OK. Look for the words "Service Pack 2" at the end of the line that begins with "Version 5.1."

If you are running another version of Windows, such as Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition, Microsoft Windows NT, Microsoft Windows 2000, or Microsoft Windows Server 2003, you cannot install Windows XP SP2. You must install Windows XP before you can install Windows XP SP2.

Or

We discovered a compatibility issue between Windows XP SP2 installation and a third-party advertising program that is named T.V. Media after Windows XP SP2 was completed. The issue occurs when you have T.V. Media installed on your computer, and you try to install Windows XP SP2. In this case, you receive the following error message and the Windows XP SP2 installation process fails:
"A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer... Technical information: STOP: c0000135 {Unable To Locate Component} This application has failed to start because winsrv was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem".
To help you avoid a failed Windows XP SP2 installation from Windows Update or from Automatic Updates, we have blocked the download of Windows XP SP2 to computers that have T.V. Media installed until T.V. Media is removed or Critical Update 885523 is installed to fix the issue.

If you want to install Windows XP SP2, you must completely remove T.V. Media from your system or install the 885523 update. The simplest way to remove T.V. Media is to use the Adware T.V. Media Program Removal Tool (KB 886590) that removes T.V. Media. After you remove T.V. Media or install the 885523 update, Windows XP SP2 will be available to install from Windows Update or from Automatic Updates.

Or you can try one more method...
If your computer contains an Intel Pentium 4 or Intel Celeron D processor that is based on Prescott C-0 stepping, and Critical Update 885626 is not yet installed, Windows Update will not offer to download Windows XP SP2. Microsoft and Intel have released an updated processor driver that will help prevent this installation failure. We recommend that you install Critical Update 885626, and rescan your system with Windows Update to install Windows XP SP2.

Hope you get your solution...
