The most recent significant update for Windows XP Pro 64-bit is called Service Pack 2 (SP2), and it comes with SP1 and other older upgrades.
Note: You must download the 32-bit version of Windows XP Pro in order to obtain Win XP with Service Pack 3. Win XP 64-bit does not have access to Service Pack 3.
Overview of Windows XP Professional 64-bit
Since its introduction in 2005, the most widely used version of Windows XP is the 64-bit version. Windows XP Home 32-bit and Windows XP Professional 64-bit were the two versions that were available at first. Users started to favor Windows XP x64 ISO more and more over time.
All of the operating system’s previously issued updates are included in the Windows XP 64 Bit ISO. Although there are a few new features in this version (service pack 2), the user experience with the OS is mostly unchanged.
