Hi

I installed the Windows Service Pack Blocker Tool Kit.

Now that Microsoft has ironed out the bugs (hopefully), I would like to install SP3, but I don't want to download the 392 MB version.

How do I delete the toolkit so I can download the smaller version through Windows Updates?

Go to Start> Run, and type cmd, in the window that opens copy and paste SPBlockingTool.exe /U and hit enter. After this the message "Action successfully completed" should appear.

Hello dc3

Thank You very much.

I am really cheesed off at myself. I couldn't figure out how to input the command option.

Now, I have another problem.

The command prompt comes up as C:\Documents and Settings\my name

If I change it to c:\ or c:\Windows and try to input the command it comes up with this message: is not recognized as an internal or external command operable program or batch file.

And it is starting to annoy me. :thumbsup:

Search your computer for "SPBlockingTool.exe" (without the quotes).
Once you locate that file, navigate to that directory in the Command Prompt window.
Then type "SPBlockingTool.exe /U" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
That'll unblock the entry in the registry.

Hi all

Now the problem is, apparently that file is not on my computer. I looked everywhere and I can't find it.

Could I export the key, change its value from 1 to 0 and import it again?

Hi White Warrior.. try this..
Usual warnings apply, before editing the registry, Backup first!.... :flowers:
Go to Start > Run
Type:regedit
Click OK.
  • On the leftside, click to highlight My Computer at the top.
  • Go up to "File > Export"
    • Make sure in that window there is a tick next to "All" under Export Branch.
      Leave the "Save As Type" as "Registration Files".
      Under "Filename" put backup
  • Choose to save it to C:\
  • Click save and then go to File > Exit.
This is so the registry can be restored to this point if we need it. It may take a minute. Just let it go until it's done.

Then..

Please do this:
  • Copy the contents of the Code Box below to Notepad.
  • Name the file as fix.reg
  • Change the Save as Type to All Files
  • and Save it on the desktop
REGEDIT4
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\POLICIES\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\WINDOWSUPDATE]
"DONotAllowSP"=-

Make sure there are NO blank lines before REGEDIT4
Make sure there are TWO blank lines at the end

Then double-click on the fix.reg file, and when it prompts to merge say yes.

That should remove the blocking reg key.. (Just tested it on my system XP Pro and it worked)!.

Regards,
Fred.. :thumbsup:
