Software Update: RyanVM’s Post-SP2 Update Pack 2.0

Ryan VanderMeulen has released a new update of the Windows XP Post-SP2 Update Pack he developed. This is a collection of all hotfixes released after the second Service Pack for Windows XP. The update is 36.2 MB in size and can be slipstreamed into an installation CD using nLite, for example. In addition, it is now also possible to install the updates separately. Another user of the MSFN forum named Siginet has developed a graphical user interface for this purpose. The name of this program is VM Integrator and it was updated to version 1.0 with the release of RyanVM itself. With this tool, the hotfixes and possibly some add on packs and Windows Media Player 10 are installed. The changelog of this release of RyanVM 2.0 looks like this:
