    • Windows Server 2003 metadata has been updated to change the Windows Update, Automatic Updates, and WSUS installation user experience based on customer feedback and requests. The actual SP2 update package and the files that are included in it are unchanged. Windows XP SP2 was published with special custom WU user experience screens and with a customized SP installer experience that was implemented specifically for Windows XP SP2 because of the nature of the release. Windows Server 2003 SP1 was published by using more conventional Windows Update, Automatic Updates, and WSUS package deployment metadata (package installer options). Windows Server 2003 SP2 was initially published by using the same switches and options as SP1. However, customers strongly preferred the Windows XP SP2 installation model. We are implementing the SP installer switches and EULAs to enable most of the Windows XP SP2 experience. The special purpose Windows Update UI that offered a custom "button" for Windows XP SP2 and a second button for "show other updates" was hard-coded for Windows XP SP2. Therefore, the Windows Update site will still have the standard experience as it does for all other packages.
    • Changed metadata to remove supersedence for MS07-012.
