The thing is, all the other files in KB4134651 -v2 are superseded by KB4339291 , released on the same day. The only file that matters for the update in question is t...

Re: [Addon] XPSP3 QFE POSReady Updates 20180715

Simply changing an older file's version does not make the file secure, Nikos. That's the solution offered to trick the Microsoft Update website into believing the new version is installed. That's not good enough for me.

The only time zone file that you need is tzupdate.inf from the POSReady addon.
