    @abbodi1406 Error 80072F8F is displayed. How about Windows 2000?

    Share WindowsUpdate.log

    i don't think W2K is supported
    does it accept installation of WUA 7.6.7600.256?

    So, this patch for wuaueng.dll x64 is correct?
    Code:
    Offset   Original Patched
    001B4E92 3B       39
    001B4E95 84       85
    001DBE98 74       90
    001DBE99 34       90

    you could enable WU trace to get more info
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Trace\PT]
    "Flags"=dword:000000ff
    "Level"=dword:00000004
    "LogFile"="C:\\WINDOWS\\WindowsUpdate-PT.log"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Trace\Misc]
    "Flags"=dword:000000ff
    "Level"=dword:00000004
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Trace\Setup]
    "Flags"=dword:000000ff
    "Level"=dword:00000004
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Trace\WuRedir]
    "Flags"=dword:000000ff
    "Level"=dword:00000004

    Ah gotcha you were originally posting about 64bit XP. I was attempting to test with a base SP3 32bit install. You had never said that until you gave a copy of the x64 dll.

    That first patch won't work as you have just changed the order of the registers in the cmp instruction.

    What I did was this:
    Code:
    Offset   Original Patched
    001B4E96    CE      00
    001B4E97    01      00
    001DBE99    34      00

    I think It's easier and cleaner as regardless of the previous cmp result, it will simply jump to the next code instruction, which means the same as do not jmp.

    About the WU trace stuff, will try later, just deleted the VM I was making the tests on.

    Later today I'll see if there is some specific to configure in IE or Windows for it to work.

    I still get 0x80072F8F error even after clean install and update certificates.

    @abbodi1406 and @daniel_k

    If my guess is correct, KB938397 or KB968730 on NT5.2 may be able to solve the 0x80072F8F error.
