Dupe. The shell32 update (KB909486) was listed on page 15. The KB article was modified in some way so it comes up in the results for new articles when you do a search.

It's always a good idea to check the back pages before you post a KB announcement.

Availability of Windows XP COM+ Hotfix Rollup Package 11

I did a quick search and didn't see this elsewhere, so here's a new KB hotfix:

KB897696 - Availability of Windows XP COM+ Hotfix Rollup Package 11

This KB supersedes KB896728, which was the Rollup Package 10.

Hope to see Update Pack 1.3.0 soon!
