XP SP2 Change Analysis Tool – Tricky on SP3

Deployment Trick when you are given error during install on XP SP3.  The installer expects XP SP2 and it is fixated.

tip found here:

sp3/

where in the registry you simply flip the CSDVersion data value from 0x300
(SP3) to 0x200 (SP2)

key at:  HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows
