I have 2003 x64, but I'm guessing you're looking for 32-bit files--from service pack 2 because SP3 for 2003 doesn't exist. The latest update I know for explorer.exe is KB918033. Despite what's stated in the article, the update is available for Windows 2003 in multiple languages and architectures (x86, x64, ia64).

I don't know where to get explorer.scf.

Sorry for the delay. Been busy lately, and this is not an easy question. Needed time to answer it adequately, and to test the batch commands that follow.

Close enough: 978 files, by my count. What follows is a sorted extraction. But no single catalog file covers all files, which is not typical.I've linked you to all the relevant tools for extracting MSU files before, but I realize they don't come with thorough instructions. I'll do what I can to explain how to get the above result.

In this post I'll describe the use of Sereby's tool and give batch commands for sorting its output. To follow these directions you should be familiar with opening and using a CMD window. The use of Pasha_ZZZ's tool will be covered in a later post.
  1. Start by opening a CMD window by pressing WindowsKey+R and typing "CMD". Press enter.
  2. Long paths will be a persistent issue. To work around it we need to create a temporary folder at the root of the drive. Type the following commands in the CMD window.
    MD "\_MSUTMP"
    CD "\_MSUTMP"
    explorer "."
  3. Download Sereby's Hotfix Extr4ct0r from his site (click on the large blue planet), and extract the "*-enu" file into the folder we just created. Move your MSU file to this folder as well.
  4. Drag your MSU file onto "Hotfix EXtr4cT0r-enu.exe". When it finishes it will ask if you only need the extracted files. Answer "Yes" or "Yes, to all!" to dispose of the TMP folder containing the source CAB files. That folder is no longer needed.
  5. You'll need to type (or copy and paste) the following commands into your CMD window. This creates new folders in the extracted folder.
    CD "Windows6.0-KB2117917-x86"
    FOR %A IN (CAT MUM) DO (MD "%As")
    FOR %A IN (GDR LDR) DO (FOR %B IN (manifests resources) DO (MD "%A\_%B"))
  6. Run the following command to move the CATs and MUMs.
    FOR %A IN (CAT MUM) DO (MOVE "*.%A" "%As")
  7. Time to separate the GDR and LDR branches. The following quote is all one command. I'd recommend copying and pasting the entire thing into the CMD window to avoid errors.
    FOR /F "delims=" %G IN ('DIR /B "x86*" 2^>NUL') DO (FOR /F "tokens=4 delims=_" %# IN ("%~G") DO (FOR /F "tokens=4 delims=." %_ IN ("%~#") DO (IF %~_ LSS 20000 (MOVE "%~G" "GDR") ELSE (MOVE "%~G" "LDR"))))
  8. Let's deal with the manifest files. You shouldn't need them, but let's get them out of the way instead of deleting them.
    FOR %A IN (GDR LDR) DO (MOVE "%A\*.manifest" "%A\_manifests")
  9. For what comes next, we need shorter folder names. The following command will shorten them. The following quote is all one command.
    FOR %A IN (GDR LDR) DO (FOR /F "delims=" %# IN ('DIR /AD /B "%A\x86_microsoft-windows-*" 2^>NUL') DO (FOR /F "tokens=2* delims=-" %G IN ("%~#") DO (REN "%A\%~#" "%~H")))
  10. Resource files (MUIs) are language specific. We need to sort them, too. First we'll create the language folders. The following quote is all one command.
    FOR %A IN (GDR LDR) DO (FOR /F "delims=" %# IN ('DIR /AD /B "%A\*.resources*" 2^>NUL') DO (FOR /F "tokens=4 delims=_" %_ IN ("%~#") DO (IF NOT EXIST "%A\_resources\%~_" (MD "%A\_resources\%~_"))))
  11. Now, move the language-specific files. The following quote is all one command.
    FOR %A IN (GDR LDR) DO (FOR /F "delims=" %# IN ('DIR /AD /B "%A\*.resources*" 2^>NUL') DO (FOR /F "tokens=4 delims=_" %_ IN ("%~#") DO (MOVE "%A\%~#\*" "%A\_resources\%~_" &RD /S /Q "%A\%~#")))
  12. Last step. Time to pull the rest of the files out of their folders. The following quote is all one command.
    FOR %A IN (GDR LDR) DO (FOR /F "delims=" %# IN ('DIR /AD /B "%A\*" 2^>NUL') DO (IF /I NOT "%~#"=="_manifests" (IF /I NOT "%~#"=="_resources" (MOVE "%A\%~#\*" "%A" &RD /S /Q "%A\%~#"))))

I don't believe so, but haven't tried.

Probably not illegal to try it for yourself. Posting your work publicly may be. It would likely earn a take-down notice from Microsoft.

Make what you need if you can't find it online. That's what I do.

Not likely if hardware drivers are involved. Haven't tried.

I generally don't do codecs and runtimes that aren't included with Windows. And I'm still running XPx64, so other architectures are a bit beyond my comfort level.

I would be very interested in your method of installing DirectX 10 and greater to XP and having it work correctly and completely. My understanding was that even if you could get the DirectX 10 and greater files installed on XP, and even if it looked like the files were installed correctly, that actually XP would ignore those files so it was a waste of time. This was also supposed to be true for 2003 and 2000. That was why the default behavior of DXCB is to not install those files for 2000, XP and 2003. I am not a gamer, and I am not familiar with a method that can reliably verify the installation and proper functioning of the various DirectX levels.

As to the legality of posting, while the posting of the files themselves could be subject to a take-down notice from Microsoft, it is perfectly OK to tell us where to find the files and then where to install them. Even better would be to create a "builder" script which would download the files from MS for the user and then either build the addon, or install the files. As long as the files are obtained by the user directly from an authorized source, then the user can utilize those files to modify their OS for their own use. Examples of DirectX tools that do similar things are DXCB as mentioned above, along with the installers/addons/builders offered by user_hidden, YumeYao, code65536, and Redxii. They are all posted here in the forum, just do a search.

Cheers and Regards

hello bphlpt, thanks for your suggestion but those dx 11/12 files are little bit patched to work with xp , and few other win10/7 files are also ported to work and my pack use special dx10 which is created by russian guys (kmsoftware,lwgames) NYE which work well with xp.
My addon is working well with Assens cread 3 and GTA V
