Convert Windows sp2 to sp3 in 60 seconds

Yesterday I found that the best game I have downloaded from my friend’s pen drive requires window XP3 to run but I have XP Service Pack 2. Now what should I do, I asked to my IT person. I am a graphic designer working freelance from home.

Here is the idea that most of the programs usually look into the info about the system status in the registry file to locate the software and patches which decides their performance. Now you can make fool such programs which requires Windows XP SP3 patch by altering the Windows XP SP2 version info. For that you just have to press command (Using windows key +R) and then, type regedit to open Registry Editor. Now you see registry editor opened then only browse to the following key shown below.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ CurrentControlSet\ Control\ Windows

Modify “CSDVersion” from “0×00000200” (SP2) to the Windows XP SP3 value of “0×00000300” and reboot the computer or laptop.

If it doesn’t work then you can download the Automatic Registry Settings. Install this and do what you want.

You don't need to update or repair or restore your current window. You will have all the software running by these changes in registry files. It would not effect any software, like file error, update your window version, any kind of error message will not occurred by this change.
Thanks for your time and patience to read this article. I hope you found the answer.

If you are not getting this then you can watch this video here I have used window 7 to show you. You can easily understand by this video that what you will have to do to change your window from xp2 to xp3.
