Theses days the technology is changing very rapidly and with in a short span of time we have to update with the new patches ans supplement for several software, though these are always in the favor of the end user but most of the time we just don’t want to implement these latest changes. Like me, a few days back back have bought anew game CD which requires windows SP3 installed to run it but I just don’t want to do so. So should i left it or there are any alternatives… Yes I have found one… described below
As for most of the programs they usually look into the info about the system status into theregistry file to locate the software and patches which decides their performance. So here is the trick to fool such programs which requires Windows XP SP3 patch by altering the windows xp sp2 version info. To do so go to windows run command (Using windows key +R) and then, type regedit to open Registry Editor. So now you have registry editor opened then only browse to the following key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ CurrentControlSet\ Control\ Windows
and modify “CSDVersion” from “0×00000200” (SP2) to the Windows XP SP3 value of “0×00000300” and reboot
If anyone facing any problem modifying the registry manually; they can download the registry file from the below link and double click on the registry file just download. Doing so will ask a confirmation to modify the registry say yes and it will do the needful task automatically.
