    Does anyone know if it is possible to edit the Installation History log in Windows XP Pro?

    imo it reads the XML file in the folder. if you know how to edit it, then you might be able to do so.

    Asklepios, do you have any idea which folder contains the download history, and the application I should use to edit it?

    The folder is typically C:\Program Files\Windows Update\V4 and the file is iuhist.xml

    Make a backup of it first (just in case), then edit it with notepad, or a HTML editor.
