Hi,

What is the best manual way to update Microsoft products (windows 2000), do I have to download each patch separately or I can download a cumulative patch which includes all required patch till date.

Regards,
OmaniX

First, update your product with the latest servicepack (for Windows 2000, this will be sp4) and update roll-up (for Windows 2000, there's only one update roll-up).
However, after the latest update roll-up, a lot of new patches have been published.
I suggest you try a small utility called "Windows Update Downloader", which can be found here: http://wud.jcarle.com/
Just install the plugin of your choice (e.g. Windows 2000 Professional English) and it will find all the patches for you.

AutoPatcher is nice, but as far as I know it only works on English versions of Windows.
If this is true, it's not very useful for other language versions of Windows.

Mfn,

I only see downloads for the English and Italian versions of Windows 2000. Are there other versions available?
