The combination of Windows XP SP2 and SQL Server Express 2005 SP3 can causes the machine to blue screen during the installation of SQL Server Express. One of the Windows Updates that you can apply to Windows XP SP2 fixes the problem. Unfortunately, if you install Windows XP SP2 and run Windows Update, it will tell you that it needs to install about 118 updates. I would like to know which of the 118 updates fixes the problem. I know that the fix involves updating SXS.DLL to version 5.1.2600.3019.
Other than installing each update one at a time and checking the version of SXS.DLL after each update, is there an easier way of determining which update fixes the problem?
