  1. Windows Updates

    Guys, I have the vanilla XP SP3 install media and want to make it up-to-date. Do I need to slipstream both of these patches: - msxml6-KB973686-XXX-x86.exe (MSXML 6.0 Service Pack 2) - WindowsXP-KB973687-x86-XXX.exe (Update for Windows XP (MSXML3 & MSXML6)) M$'s KB article states, that KB973686 is only for Win XP SP2.

    Shortly after posting my previuos post, I noticed the remark in mim0's list: When you extract it manually to HFCABS, use all files MonthYear_*_x86.cab, except for *mdx* (see here). Well, so extracting the MonthYear_*_x86.cab files (and no one other) into HFCABS\ folder is the working solution? Or besides MonthYear_*_x86.cab some others are also required in the HFCABS ?

    Thank you fellas for all your replies. I found that selfextracting directx_feb2010_redist.exe contains .cab files for both x86 and for x64 platform. Slipstreaming such a package into 32bit Windows installation CD makes little sense. I plan to extract this redist.exe, then delete *x64* files and repack it (by 7zip) into new selfextracting archive. It will be roughly half the size of the multiplatform redist.exe. Of course, I will include the rest of the files besides the *x86* (setup.exe, dsetup.dll, dsetup32.dll) into the new selfextracting archive. Will such a x86-only stripped down version work?

    mim0, MuppetHunter, or anybody ho knows it.. I found another mismatch in those lists you maintain. The Cumulative Time Zone Update KB979306 have to be placed in HFSVCPACK_SW1\ folder according to list at vorck.com, and into HF\ folder according to mim0's list. Which destination folder is correct?

    Thanks mim0 for your reply. It seems, that I do not stated clearly what I do want. Well, my fault. I plan to slipstream: - IE8, - WMP11, - latest available post-SP3 hotfixes, into XP SP3. After reading your post, I went to your list and read the KB972582 issue once more, now carefully. So, if I will slipstream IE8, I have to: - put the IE8-WindowsXP-KB980182-x86-ENU.exe hotfix (the one intended for IE8) into HF\ folder. - extract (and compress it by makecab) the shdocvw.dll from the WindowsXP-KB980182-x86-ENU.exe (the one intended for IE6) and put it into REPLACE\I386\ folder. Is it correct?

    Mim0, Looking into your updates list, I am confused by the KB972582 issue in Table 4: Non-security updates for Internet Explorer. This workaround: extract the shdocvw.dll from WindowsXP-KB980182-x86-XXX.exe (SP3GDR), compress it with makecab.exe to shdocvw.dl_ and place it to REPLACE\I386. apply only for those, who do NOT slipstream IE8 ? May I completely forget about the KB972582 issue (and a workaround shown in your list), if I will slipstream IE8 and the latest cumulative security update for IE8 ?

    Guys, Do I need to slipstream the WindowsXP-WindowsMedia-KB952069-v2-x86-ENU.exe into XP SP3 install CD, if I plan to slipstream WMP11 also? In the post-SP3 updates list at vorck.com, there is no mention about WindowsXP-WindowsMedia-KB952069-v2-x86-ENU.exe. But Mim0's list shows it as Important update.

    To fdv: Fred, in your XP3 updates list http://www.vorck.com/windows/hotfixes_xp.html there is a typo: WindowsXP-KB971486-x86-ENU.exe is listed both in the "active hotfixes" section and in a "to remove" section. It os obsolete now and should only be found in section "to remove". The same it is with WindowsXP-KB971557-x86-ENU.exe. It only should appear in the section "to remove". Moreover, this text "WindowsXP-KB971557-x86-ENU.exe" appears in the link to patch 975560. The link leads to correct patch, but is incorrectly labeled. Just search for string "WindowsXP-KB971557-x86-ENU.exe" in your list, and you will find it 3 times.

    I have found a litlle typo in this list http://www.vorck.com/windows/hotfixes_xp.html. There is an update 972270 listed with "Low" security bulletin rating. But in the MS10-001 bulletin it is stated to be "Critical".
