Unable to slipstream SP3

    All internet suggestions regarding slipstreaming SP3 in preparation for doing
    a clean computer install require use of Command Prompt. When I get to that
    part and try to integrate an error message appears:
    "WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe" is not recognized as an internal or
    external comma, operable program or batch file.". Appreciate suggestions to
    get around this "road block"

    Have you tried AutoStreamer or nLite? These are tools to help with
    creating a slipstreamed CD image

    Lew, please post a link to the directions you used. (Perhaps it had a
    typo.)

    Another option is to use a program like Nlite:

    I tried to download nlite and it won't let me. Says there is an error and
    has to do with the referrer or virus/firewalls. I disabled the AV program
    with the firewall, added a referrer patch to Firefox but still won't download
    to my computer. How do you use Autostreamer?

    There are a number of sites available with a Google and they essentilally all
    the same. The exact path in Command Prompt is replicated on each site and I
    have typed this in many times to be certain that backslashes and
    forwardslasches and spacing is exactly as spelled out in detail on all of
    them but the same error response comes back that is on my OP.

    On the computer having the problem: Right-click on My Computer & select
    Properties: What Windows version is
    displayed in the resulting General tab (e.g., Windows XP Professional
    Service Pack 1)?

    *What* won't let you download the installation file?

    Are you able to use another PC to download it?

    If "WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe" is not recognized as an
    executable file, first try to re-download it.

    If you still have the same issue, the fact that you apparently also have
    problems downloading nlite suggests that there is some underlying
    problem with your computer. What is the malware status of your pc, and
    how do you know?

    In that case, I refer you to Lem's post. In the off-chance you can't see
    it, here is the content:

    I suggest follow the instructions in this article:

    <http://www.theeldergeek.com/slipstreamed_xpsp3_cd_final.htm>

    Whenever you have to type anything, you should just copy and paste to
    avoid any errors when following the instructions. Also, you need to
    follow the instructions literally to get the right results especially if
    you are new to these things.

    I was unable to find this at an official Microsoft site, but I *think*
    the details for the stand-alone SP3 update are:

    Filename: WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe
    Size: 316MB (331,805,736 bytes)
    CRC32: C411A9DA
    MD5: BB25707C919DD835A9D9706B5725AF58
    SHA-1: C81472F7EEEA2ECA421E116CD4C03E2300EBFDE4

    First compare the size of the file you downloaded. If it matches, then
    download a checksum checker: see, e.g.,
    http://www.mydigitallife.info/2009/...le-checksum-integrity-verifier-kb841290-fciv/
    and see if the file you have is correct.

    I finally was able to slipstream SP3 with the technique described in Paul
    Thurrott's SuperSite and using a previous slipstreamed SP2 disc made a few
    years ago.
    Thanks for everyone's input and help
