Because Microsoft believes that Update Rollup 1 for Windows SP4 meets the needs of customers better than a new service pack for Windows 2000, Microsoft will not release another service pack for Windows 2000. Therefore, Windows 2000 SP4 is the final service pack for Windows 2000. Customers who have not yet installed Windows 2000 SP4 should consider installing Windows 2000 SP4 as soon as possible. Windows 2000 with SP4 is a prerequisite for Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4.
Frequently asked questionsQ1: Why does Microsoft believe that Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 meets the needs of customers better than a new service pack for Windows 2000?
A1: Microsoft talked to many customers about their plans for maintaining their Windows 2000 deployments. The most frequent requests were for Microsoft to make keeping Windows 2000-based computers up to date as easy as possible, and for Microsoft to reduce the predeployment testing that customers have to perform. Update rollups may help customers make their computers more secure. Update rollups also help customers build new system images without applying and tracking individual hotfixes. Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 requires less predeployment testing because the number of updates that are included in the update rollup is smaller than the number of updates that are typically included in a service pack. Additionally, Microsoft has already released most of the contents of this update rollup as individual updates and hotfixes.
Because Windows 2000 is a mature product, many of the Windows 2000 hotfixes that were released after the release of Windows 2000 SP4 address relatively obscure problems. These problems affect a small number of customers. At this point, an update rollup provides the most usefulness at the least risk of instability.
Q2: How will Microsoft list Update Rollup 1 for Windows SP4 on the Windows Update Web site?
A2: Update Rollup 1 for Windows SP4 is listed as a high-priority update in the "Critical and Service Packs" category on the Windows Update Web site. During the next few months, Windows Update will transition Windows 2000 customers to a new version of Windows Update. After this transition, Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 will be listed in the "High Priority Updates" category.
Q3: Should I install Update Rollup 1 for Windows SP4 even if I have kept my Windows 2000 SP4 systems up to date?
A3:Yes. Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 contains important fixes that have not previously been part of individual security updates. Additionally, this update rollup contains enhancements that may help increase system security, increase reliability, reduce support costs, and support the current generation of PC hardware. To address minor compatibility problems that were introduced by earlier security updates, hotfixes may have updated some files that were installed by the earlier updates. This update includes the latest versions of these files. Therefore, even if a system is fully up to date, Windows Update still detects and installs this update rollup. Customers who use managed security update deployment solutions should decide whether to deploy Update Rollup 1 within their infrastructure.
Q4: Will Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 be distributed over Automatic Updates?
A4: At first, this update rollup will not be distributed over Automatic Updates. This delay is because of the transition from the Windows Update version 4 infrastructure to the version 6 infrastructure. This update rollup will be made available as an automatic update in September, 2005.
Q5: Will there be an administrative blocking tool for Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 like there was for Windows XP SP2?
A5: No, Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 is not a service pack. Therefore, this update rollup does not require the same level of deployment control. This update rollup is treated like other security or reliability updates. These updates are typically distributed by Windows Update and by Automatic Updates.
Q6: Do I have to install the individual security bulletin updates before I install Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 on new installations of Windows 2000?
A6: No. First install Windows 2000 SP4, and then install the update rollup. After you install the update rollup, run Windows Update to find updates that were released after April 30, 2005, or that were not included in the update rollup.
Q7: Are customers required to install Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4?
A7: Customers are not required to install Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4. Microsoft designed the update rollup to make it easy to keep Windows 2000-based computers up to date. Therefore, we strongly recommend that customers install Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 as soon as they can.
Q8: After Update Rollup 1 for Windows SP4 is installed on a computer that is running Windows 2000 SP4, will the service pack level of Windows 2000 change?
A8: No. The service pack level of the computer remains at Windows 2000 SP4. After you install Update Rollup 1 for Windows SP4, the computer will be up to date from a life-cycle policy perspective until the end-of-life date for Windows 2000. The end-of-life date for Windows 2000 will be no sooner than January 1, 2010.
Q9: Is this the first time that Microsoft has produced an update rollup instead of a service pack?
A9: No. Microsoft has produced update rollups before. For more information about update rollups that were previously released by Microsoft, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
A10: Service packs and update rollups play different, yet complimentary roles. Service packs deliver important updates and new features that customers request before the next release of a major operating system. Update rollups deliver a group of updates between more major releases. Microsoft uses update rollups when there is a longer than typical gap between service pack releases. Later in the life cycle of a product, update rollups make it easier for customers to keep their computers up to date. When customers install an update rollup, customers do not have to individually install all the updates that are available for a product.
Q11: How does Microsoft decide which hotfixes to include in an update rollup?
A11: Microsoft examines the number of times that customers request and download each hotfix from Microsoft Web sites and from Product Support. Microsoft also evaluates the potential cost savings for customers. This evaluation is based on experience in the Windows 2000 data center environment at Microsoft.
Q12: What kinds of updates are included in Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4?
A12: Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 contains all the security updates that were produced for Windows 2000 after the release of SP4 until April 30, 2005. On April 30, 2005, the contents for Update Rollup 1 were locked down for final testing by Microsoft, by external beta sites, and by customer sites. Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 also contains a small number of important non-security updates. Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 contains updates that meet the following criteria:
- Updates that broadly apply to a variety of customers
- Updates that are frequently downloaded by customers
- Updates that have the potential to help customers significantly decrease their IT costs
For example, Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 contains updates to address problems that are time-consuming for support professionals to troubleshoot and fix.
- Updates that were included on new computers by major Windows original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) after Windows 2000 SP4 was released

Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 TAPI informationUpdate Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 changes how telephony server and client computers communicate using the Telephony Application Programming Interface (TAPI).
After you install Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4, a Windows 2000 telephony client accepts only encrypted RPC packets from a telephony server. The client does not communicate with a telephony server that sends non-encrypted RPC packets. However, this restriction does not apply to TAPI deployments where the client computers are using mailslot instead of remote procedure call (RPC) for communications with the telephony server. This restriction also does not apply where the telephony server uses mailslot for communications.
By default, a Windows 2000 client uses mailslot to communicate with the telephony server. A Windows 2000 client uses RPC only when the client is explicitly configured as connection-oriented. To configure the client this way, use the tcmsetup command together with the -x switch. For example, use the following command:
NotesUpdate Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 does not contain updates for Windows components that are not included with a clean slipstream install of Windows 2000 SP4. If components were previously installed or updated, you must download individual security updates by using Windows Update.
Examples of these updates include the following:
- MS03-011 - Flaw in Microsoft VM Could Enable System Compromise (KB816093)
The Microsoft VM is not included in SP4 natively. However the VM may be resident on systems which were updated to SP4 from a prior SP or installed by a third party software package.
- Internet Explorer 6 and Outlook Express 6
Windows 2000 originally included Internet Explorer 5.01. Service packs for Windows 2000 only affect this version. We recommend that you install Internet Explorer 6 SP1 and the current cumulative Internet Explorer security updates on Windows 2000 computers.
Note The log file name for the Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 is named UpdateRollupPack.log. This file is located in the %Systemroot% folder.
