Hi, I have just started to deply a windows auto update system using SUS1.0 on a server machine and WUAU2.2 on the XP clients.
However when I try to install WUAU2.2 on any of the windows XP machines I get the error:
'Microsoft Windows Update Auto Update requires Windows 2000 SP2 or Windows XP'
All of the windows clients have SP1 installed (I checked the page on microsoft.com as it says nothing about requiring SP2)

Has anyone else had the same/a simalar problem and how did you fix this?

thanks

Windows XP after SP1 does not need the Windows update auto update client - you just configure it via Group Policy!

See this from Microsoft:

You only need to install Automatic Updates on computers running Windows 2000 with SP2 or Windows XP without SP1.
