@SelfMan/eethball: issue not reproducible, sorry. In this case, removing KB889333 from hotfix list is the better choice.

@fajar: Addon creator works in x64 systems but it isn't able to create x64 addons/updatepacks.
Don't ask for a different configuration of Onepiece's XP AIO Update Pack: use one of the existing vanilla XP UpdatePack with your preferred addons instead

An x64 IE8 addon exists that works for x64 editions of XP/2003, and should work with several languages.

If you create an IE7 addon with the previous cummulative update and KB889333, and then try to install KB978207 manually by running the IE7-WindowsXP-KB978207-x86-ENU.exe you'll see a message saying something about the following images may not be valid and it says to reinstall the update and try again. Then it points to C:\Windows\System32\iepeers.dll and C:\Windows\System32\dllcache\iepeers.dll. If your test includes KB889333 and the latest KB978207 update then the iepeers.dll from KB978207 is used instead so you have no problems. I had 14 computers all reloaded using an addon where KB889333 was included and the problem existed on all of them. Some of these PCs were reloaded back when you guys used to maintain the addon yourself so I know I know it wasn't just a bad integration or something.

I'm sure all new addons that include KB889333 will be fine for the reason I described above, but the problem will exists for users that installed Windows using an addon that included KB889333 before KB978207 was released/integrated into the source.

I didn't mean for this to come off as a rant or anything because I'm very grateful for all your and OnePieces efforts. I just wanted to let you know how to reproduce the error we're talking about. Thanks again for everything.

Thank you very much for pointing this out and for your clear explanation.
You're right, actually Microsoft hasn't considered the presence of KB889333 on existing systems when you install KB978207 running its executable.
For this reason KB889333 has been deleted from the IE7 hotfix integration list.
