Default WSUS - Testing for the First Time - Error Unsupported Operating System

I am testing WSUS for the first time on an in-house computer.
It is running XP PRO sp3.
I created the ISO for XP and English.

The error is 'unsupported operating system'.
I have searched and cannot locate anything that seems to be relevant.

Thank you in advance.

Are you positive that you have downloaded and created the correct iso?

The resulting ISO file name is 'wsusoffline-wxp-enu.iso'.

Dont know if this helps but something changed on my Win 7 machine where I build WSUS and I now need to run WSUS as Administrator otherwise it comes up with different errors when trying to update a clients machine from the resultant ISOs(Didnt before last round of Windows Updates)

By doing this it stopped the errors - Try and see if that helps in this case.

I ran the whole build as a user in the Admin. group.
So, you are suggesting that I delete the ISO and d/l the 1 gb as user 'Admin'?

You can delete the ISO but WSUS overwrites each time it creates a new one. Running as Admin it would simply check if new version available so it shouldnt be a full download of everyone again.

Just realised your building this on XP ( got to stop speed reading) so my suggestion wouldnt apply to you. I'd try redoing the build and ticking verify downloads just in case you've got some corruption. Other than that WSUS 'usually' very robust

Well, I am fairly confident that I choose exactly the same options when I ran the program the second time.
The resulting ISO shrunk from 1.1 Gb to about 800Mb and is currently updating the test machine!

Nice. Don't be shocked if the machine still finds a few updates. Every single machine I've run it on finds something, even if I've just built the ISO earlier that day. Still saves a buttload of time.

Thanks for that bit of information. I have download the ISO a couple of times thinking I didn't have the latest version.

It's still a great tool and saves a lot of time.

I am a big fan of WSUS offline update (although I am planning to set up network server with WSUS for the shop). I have had occasion for the final disk to fail, and in my opinion there are so many opportunities for failure in the process of downloading, verification, assembly of the iso and burning that it is going to fail sometimes. Since my one failure, I have turned the verification switch back on.
