Windows Batman XP V2 is an updated version of a Windows XP SP2 bootleg, Windows Batman XP, which was created by the same author. It released nearly 2 years after Windows Batman XP did, and was added to the archive on December 13, 2021.

A major difference between the two bootlegs is that Windows Batman XP V2 uses Windows XP SP3, instead of Windows XP SP2.


The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP3 ISO. It styles the OS after the famous superhero Batman, and Windows 7, like its predecessor. It comes with less themes, wallpapers and programs than its predecessor, but is more polished and better-looking. In place of using RunOnce to install programs, a fully-functioning WPI has been added in its place instead, with new graphics. All of the included software has been moved there.

It is still unattended and preactivated. The ISO was still made using nLite.
