WindowsServer2003-KB3000988-x86 has msi.dll & msihnd.dll with higher version than KB2918614.
Maybe we could use this KB3000988 for WinXP

Good find!
I'm not 100% sure but i don't see why we could not add this KB3000988 to Windows XP.

Latest rvkroots.exe is KB3048051 <http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... kroots.exe>. It needs fixing the registry, just as the previous one... But, before fixing, this one is Ver 007 and has been signed on Tue, Mar 17, 2015 3:16:13 PM, so it's the latest. Is there also any newer rootsupd.exe, with Ver above 041? I've been searching for such one, but so far, to no avail.

I haven't seen one above v41. But I only check KB931125 and the Microsoft Update Catalog website.

It appeared in a Security Advisory from Mar 16 <https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/3046310> and the link to the actual file is in the corresponding KB3046310 page...

Had rvkroots for a few days now. I thought you were talking about rootsupd.

Sure. I was talking about rootsupd.exe, of course.
But I thought the fact rvkroots appeared on a Security Advisory six days after patch Tuesday noteworthy...

I've found an obscure update for POSReady 2009.

KB2782798

No new files, just one registry entry.

Nice find, tomasz86. The registry entry it adds seems to break my INF, so I can't use it in my addon. :(

How come? What happens when you integrate it? What if you add the entry after the system has been installed?

When I try to add the following registry entry installed by KB2782798:
HKU,s-1-5-19\Control Panel\Desktop
or
HKU,"s-1-5-19\Control Panel\Desktop"
or
HKU,"s-1-5-19\Control Panel\Desktop",,0x10
...then any registry entries on the same "AddReg=" line following that one fail to get written to the registry. I have not tried adding that registry entry after Windows setup finishes.

That registry entry already exists in my English install, before any MUI pack is installed. And since I don't see any point in slipstreaming a French MUI pack, I'm not sure it would be very useful for me to put much more effort into adding a preexisting registry entry. The fault seems to lie with the French MUI pack, not POSReady.

I think you need to add them to HKCU. HKCU added during the Windows setup will become HKU once the system has been installed.

I have to say, you are on top of your updates. Wish I had known before I released SP3.49. Thanks again.

The original URL is indeed dead and unavailable in the Wayback Machine too.

For testing purposes you can still use the Windows 2003 Server version of the update which installs the exact same files (which I also use for Windows 2000) but it cannot be used for manual installation (slipstreaming only) unless you modify the installer itself.
