Re: Welcome to Windows XP Service Pack 4

KB4134651 was meant to replace KB4074852 . Gary should try removing the newer update if it exists (versions 1 and 2, released in May and July respectively). There was a lengthy discussion on MSFN regarding those updates, but the posts seem to be missing now. All posts between February 6th and June ...

Re: [Addon] XPSP3 QFE POSReady Updates 20180917

Yes, KB4343674 was removed from the addon. KB4458000 replaces "mf3216.dll" and the GDI+ assemblies included with the older update.

This addon does not include IE8. See my IE8 Addon for KB4457426. ;)

Re: Beyond TLS 1.0: what could be done?

Thank you, Zephyr. I have verified that the "OSVersion" registry entries work in IE8 when added at T-13 in an unattended XP install.

dencorso is correct. In fact, the only necessary entry for the POSReady2009 hack to work with MU and update package installers is the last one.
