Updating window xp 2016
The quality update will be available on the Microsoft Update Catalog.
Having a predictable cadence for when you can expect updates, enables you to build regular update maintenance and deployment processes.
Activations will still be required for retail installations of Windows XP after this date as well.
While customers may continue to use System Center, Microsoft Intune, and the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit to manage and deploy Windows XP past April 8, 2014, those products will no longer support Windows XP, and any technical issues which may arise will not be addressed.
The key improvement is that Windows Update will automatically check and proactively notify you when there are updates you should apply.
This helps you get the fixes before you encounter issues and avoid downtime before it ever happens.
You control scheduling a maintenance window and installing the updates when it is best for your business.
For customers who prefer the behavior of previous releases Automatic Updates can be easily configured, including being disabled with group policies.
