  • Hi Texkonc,


    Based on SteadyState Handbook, Windows SteadyState will automatically install Microsoft Update, Windows Update, or Windows Server Update Services, depending on which of these is currently used by Windows XP.


    However, Windows SteadyState only automates critical updates from Microsoft. It does not automatically install recommended updates, optional updates, driver updates, or special updates that may have their own license agreements. Review the updates available on Microsoft Update periodically, manually download and install the ones you want, and then make sure that the Retain all changes permanently option is turned on in the Protect the Hard Drive dialog box.
