Microsoft has failed to reveal the changes, if any, implemented in the WGA Notifications update, but the WindowsXP-KB905474-ENU-x86.exe file has gone live on the Download Center on August 25, and in this context it is different from the WindowsXP-KB905474-ENU-x86-Standalone.exe release dating back to early 2007. The only visible difference is in terms of the supported operating systems where Windows XP SP2 is featured alongside XP SP3.

With the release of Service Pack 3 for Windows XP, Microsoft has adapted the installation process and activation mechanism of the platform to match that of Windows Vista. Not only are XP SP3 users installing the client no longer required to enter the product key during the deployment phase, but the product now benefits from a 30-day activation-free trial period.
