I erroneously posted this initially at the Ws7 Forum. My error came about because "XP" is loaded into VirtualMachine ware-Player with a "Ws7" host.

When I attempt to do a manual update the process goes as far as where you chose "Express" or "Custom". Clicking either one does not bring on the searching of my installation for updates.

What needs to be done?

I am 81 years "young" and enjoying becoming computer "savvy." Need help from sites like this from time to time. Thanks to the folks who provide the assistance to those of us in need.

Just my guess, but I could be wrong.

Virtual XP is just an image running in Win7 or Vista , it is a subset of the main OS being run in a box, so there is probably no provision to run the updates because the main system is not WinXP, the XP box does not hook into the system itself.

The updates ran, including all of the post SP3 immediately after my first installation of "XP" in VMwP. I carelessly deleted the VWwP installation and had to start all over. Hence, I am trying to bring "XP" "up to snuff." There are no apparent problems other than this one. I am downloading programs, installing them, and using "XP" routinely.

Thanks for the response.

I decided to try auto updates with notification and no download nor installation. This morning I found that the large number of post SP3 updates (hotfixes) are waiting for my OK. I will proceed this way, at least until I can find a way to do manual updates.
