    I thought 3311 was the final?? At any rate sp3 beats vista rc1 IMHO...

    Thanks for the heads up.

    5508 is RC2 Refresh (i think).

    Windows XP Service Pack 3 Release Candidate 2 Refresh (DEU, ENU, JPN)

    Windows XP Service Pack 3 Overview

    TechNet: Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) Forum


    Edit: No the files are not the same (hmm).

    Yes, the 5508 build is available from the link I provided not from the Microsofts site. Microsoft states this update is only availabke from Windows update but is available from this MS server???

    Ah i got confused by the MS thread, but i didn't read it all the way through. I just thought it was linking to the same DL.

    So it is only when using the Windows XP SP3 Release Candidate 2.exe application (as MS calls it) and then updating through WU that will give you 5508, the full downloads on the same page as Windows XP SP3 Release Candidate 2.exe are all 3311 (right?).

    Maybe they just haven't updated the links yet or maybe they want to test WU first.

    Like you said, it could be just a test through WU? In any case, there is no indication of beta status in the downloaded file. From " SolidBladez " post above in this thread, the site states: http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=9071778
