JSI Tip 6421. You cannot install driver updates for Windows XP from the Windows Update site?

When you try to install driver updates from the Windows Update site, the installation does NOT succeed.

If you have a large number of .INF files in the %SystemRoot%\Inf folder, you will experience this behavior.

NOTE: This problem should be fixed in Service Pack 2 for Windows XP.

Prior to the availability of SP2, download and install the 814033 package.
