Topic: DPBase Update Checker issue

When trying to update the DPBase via the update checker, I receive the error message that the driver pack is unavailable.  It does this on all the driver packs.  This occurs when running the program as administrator and running in XP SP3 compatibility mode. Any Suggestions?

Re: DPBase Update Checker issue

The DriverPacks BASE 'update-checker' was disabled over 2 years ago due to download hosting issues.

A first and obvious step, is to cease the ability to download/update the Windows 2000/XP/2003 DriverPacks from within the DriverPacks BASE for free. In the first phase, the downloads will stop working, thereby increasing our number of visitors.

Can you please enable Update checker?

Read one post above yours.

Re: DPBase Update Checker issue

Ahh, you can update driverpacks manually, Please go to and select driverpack which you like update.

Re: DPBase Update Checker issue

Those packs listed on are the official Releases.
As you can see, it has been some time since that last official release.

The latest Release Candidates & Nightlies are here in the forum, in their respective sections.

For example:  [ReleaseCandidate] DP_MassStorage_wnt5_x86-32_1304-1307
     The latest nightly is noted in the last post of that topic.
