What is an SP2 file?

An SP2 file is an update file included in Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2). It contains data used to fix and add features to Windows XP. SP2 files are similar to .SP and .SP3 files.

More Information

Before PCs and operating systems were regularly updated over the Internet, they were updated using physical CD-ROMs. Windows XP updates were stored on Windows XP Service Pack CDs. These CDs contained a number of files and folders, including a data file used to apply fixes and enhancements to a user's copy of Windows XP. On the Windows XP Service Pack 2 disc, that file was named WIN51IP.SP2 (Windows XP SP2 Professional Edition) or WIN51IC.SP2 (Windows XP SP2 Home Edition).

Microsoft released Windows XP Service Pack 2 on August 25, 2004. The many network security improvements it contained were collectively codenamed Springboard and included a major upgrade to Windows Firewall.

Common SP2 Filenames

WIN51IP.SP2 - Update file included in Windows XP Professional Edition Service Pack 2.

WIN51IC.SP2 - Update file included in Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2.

How to open an SP2 file

SP2 files are not meant to be opened. If you still possess a copy of Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can use the disc to apply the fixes and enhancements its SP2 file contains to Windows XP. To do so, insert the disc into your CD-ROM drive, browse to the disc in File Explorer, and double-click SETUP.EXE.
