Here's the installer to install this as a service and run it.
The installer installs the PS3NoUpdate by DC740 as a service in XP.
It will autodetect your IP address, as long as
1) its in the 192.168.x.x range.
2) You only have one IP one the system in the 192.168.x.x range.
It will install the service "PS3NoUpdate" set it to Auto.
Do Not change folder, Its harcoded to the service.
After the install completes. Change the update.txt in C:\Ps3NoUp\Up folder to reflect your region. By default it installs the US 3.15 file. There should be no need to restart the service.
