    Could be interesting to just get Windows Update working. Regular Server 2008 updates already work without any modification, but WU stopped working when they bumped the build number to 6003. This could be a solution for those who wish to use WU temporarily.

    licensing ( c:/windows/system32/ )
    yes use licensing folder from server 2008 , rename licensing from vista to licensingbak

    slmgr.vbs -rilc

    slmgr.vbs -ipk ( volume key corresponding to server 2008 * desktop licensing * extracted dont use core licensing ! )

    reboot activate with kms

    launch windows update

    if you have error for à little update it's normal ignore error

    after full update rename licensing to licensingsvr and licensingbak to licensing

    slmgr.vbs -rilc

    slmgr.vbs -ipk ( vista key )

    reboot and you have vista fully up to date !

    Makes sense, considering WS2008 and Vista share the same codebase.

    On the MDL Forum, I noticed some time ago that there is a section dedicated to a Bypass Windows Vista EOL (with Windows Update). Interested in this topic, I would like to know if this Bypass can be applied to a System running Windows Vista Premium Family Edition with x86 (32-bit) architecture. If this is the case, I would like to know the operating instructions and the procedure for the complete installation of this Bypass, including the location or site where the original file is downloaded in .zip, the number and N° of the preliminary updates to be installed before anything else, the Test Update N° and the number of times and the various times the system or computer must be restarted in order to fully master the installation of this Windows Vista EOL Bypass.
    Thank you in advance for any information you may provide or communicate in this regard.

    you need windows server 2008 ( not R2 ! ) iso , for windows vista 32 bits any sku you need server 2008 32 any sku with gui licensing , same for 64 bits , licensi'g must match architecture !

    first apply all update to vista any sku use sp2 iso ! for little speed , after vista fully up to date , apply server 2008 licensing ( bakup vista licensing folder , for instruction follow link indicated

    launch windows update to up date vista up to january 2020 , after fully update to january 2020 , replace server 2008 with vista home premium or any other sku licensing

    use bypass from abbody for up date past january 2020

    According to @abbodi1406, Server updates install only partially on Vista, due to missing prerequisite packages. It's a double-edged sword, for that reason.

    so that means the vista bypass does not work 100%

    new server 2008 updates for March 2020 (KB4550736 SSU & KB4541506 rollup) came out on 3/10

    As mentioned earlier in the post #8 of this Forum dedicated to Windows Vista Bypass EOL (with Windows Update), I have a fixed PC that still runs under Windows Vista Family Edition Premium SP2 with x86 architecture (32 Bits). Still being a novice on this Forum, and following your Post (OP) #4 of 01/27/2020 and (OP)#9 of 02/22/2020, I have a lot of difficulty understanding and interpreting your answers regarding how to apply a Server License on Windows Vista.

    Since your instructions are a little fuzzy and especially not precise enough, I would be very interested if you could provide me or communicate to me a detailed and precise method which consists in applying a Server License on Windows Vista. When I talk about the detailed method, I mean that you indicate the exact path to follow, that is to say to go in a given directory, then in a given folder, then in a given sub-folder, and then the exact and precise manipulation or action to be carried out, to update my Windows Vista PC. For now, I have managed to update my Windows Vista X86 Fixed PC until June 2019 (KB4503273).

    On the other hand, I have another laptop running Windows 7 Home Edition Premium SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, for which I have followed all the indications and recommendations regarding Bypassesu-v4 and Bypass-ESU-v5-AIO-7z, and to date I have managed to maintain my Portable PC by installing all the updates of February 2020 and March 2020 without problems. I hope that will be the case for the next two or three years.

    To this end, I would like to thank the various members of this MDL Forum, in particular "abbodi 1406" and also among others "Enthousiast", even though I probably forget several others.
    Thank you to all the testers and developers.

    I don't think so, SHA2 update applies only to Server 2008.

    sha2 are specific to server 2008

    for certificate is simple ..

    rename licensing folder inside
    = >
    c:/windows/system32/

    to licensing.bak

    copy licensing from server 2008 ( not r2 install and paste on vista computer on
    c:/windows/system32/

    on c:/windows/system32/ you have two folder ! licensing ( taken from server 2008 and licensing.bak ( license file from vista )

    open command prompt with admin right and write

    1: slmgr.vbs -rilc

    wait

    open new command prompt with admin right and write

    slmgr.vbs -ipk (input gvlk key that match server 2008 edition )

    reboot

    Which KMS tool did you use?

    I did the procedure and it worked, but I couldn't activate it because the activators I had didn't work (or they only support the Business edition).

    As Windows Update stopped working, I tested the Mini Tool in offline mode with the July database and it found the updates for Server 2008 (only 2, because the machine was already up to date, I don't know if I should show more), including ESU updates.

    In fact, Bypass 5 did not worked, as it did not detect the prerequisite updates (the preparer, interestingly, did not install), but the first version of Bypass installed and worked without problems.
