Registry hack for XP updates

Post by sparks on Mon Jun 02, 2014 10:37 am

With the end of Windows XP, we showed you how to protect your computer with the best tools and advice of the time. However, it since turns out that support isn't quite as over as we'd thought.

In fact, Microsoft is still continuing to develop updates, although not strictly for Windows XP. Rather, Microsoft is continuing to support Windows Embedded Industry for another five years until April 2019. Previously called Windows Embedded POSReady, this OS is a special version of Windows XP designed for use in industrial systems, such as cash registers and ATMs.

The beauty of the two systems being so interlinked is that updates designed for one system should work on the other. As discovered on BetaNews, tricking your home edition of XP into thinking its Windows Embedded POSReady means you get updates for the next five years.
