How to Convert Windows XP SP2 to SP3 without any set up program!!!!!

Updated on April 4, 2011

In these days the technology is grooming highly and with in a short span of time. In the advancement of Technology we need to have some updated softwares or games that can provide the modern outcome. Like me, I purchased a game last Sunday, and I was very exited to play. When I entered the CD into the CDROM, suddenly it requires windows SP3 installed to run. That was very frustrated thing for me, and I was feeling very angry because I didn’t have any SP3 CD. But I decided to overcome this problem to you guys because invention is my hobby, So I am going to tell you how you can change your SP2 pack into SP3 for your convenience.

If there is a version of windows xp SP2 is installed in your computer system, You do not need to worry to change it. These are the steps to overcome this problem:

~ go to start---->Run--> type the word Regedit

 

~ Your windows Registry Editor will open,

 

~ Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ CurrentControlSet\ Control\ Windows

 

~ Than please modify “CSDVersion” from 0×00000200” (SP2) to the Windows XP SP3 value of “0×00000300” and than reboot your system.

 

Now your Window has been upgraded to SP3 and you will be able to installed various advance softwares.

 

This is the easy trick which will bypass the information so that any program or software require SP3 (and if you have only SP2) would exactly work. So now enjoy; with all the gaming stuff. Buy don’t forget to subscribe and enter your valuable opinion in the comments section.

      Nice hack, to pretend having installed SP3, why don't u install the SP3 itself. this trick will make your system unstable and vulnerable to malware attack.

      The moment I convert my computer from xp sp2 to sp3 all i can see after reboot is none of the icons are visible, tried all possible troubleshooting steps including xp O/S setup(my system doesn't allow to do setup) but unable to get icons on my desktop. However,started my computer in safe mode to command prompt and rolled back my system from sp3 to sp2.

      Thank God I finally got my system to normal.It's waste of my 2hrs time along this way you have shown us.Bullshit answers.

      its very tempting but where is the guy to hold responsible if something went wrong not like refunding money if something fails to please you.. better get an sp3 installation Cd. Thanks won't try risking my files getting lost or tampered with.
