Thanks for that, I'll include it when the next patch Tuesday comes around.
I think your link is probably the same file that is directly linked to on the hfslip updates page (which contains files from 24 August 2009).

It also seems to me that KB969805 may only apply to server editions of Win2K, but I could just be confused there as well. This isn't meant to be critical: I really appreciate this tool and wish I had taken the plunge years ago.

Another update. I vaguely remember reporting once something very similar (only a minor difference in otherwise very similars URLs for two different files), but I cannot find that again... STUPID STUPID STUPID MICROSOFT!
Please change the link for "muweb_site.cab" from this one:
to this one:
Look almost identical? Only an additional "www"? Yes, that's right! But they refer totally different files. The first one is from 2008/10/17 and contains version 7.2.6001.788 of the MU ActiveX control, whereas the second is from 2009/08/07 and contains version 7.4.7600.226. Using this most recent file, MU was satisfied on first run in Internet Explorer...
I HATE THAT! DO THOSE F****** GUYS IN REDMOND KNOW WHAT THEY DO SOMETIMES?
Thanks for correcting the link in the update list!

If there are no objections I'm going to remove the reference to WMP9 hotfixes to make things simpler. The line will be changed to :-
If you do not slipstream the WMP11 installer, you do not need the WMP11 hotfixes

I'd also feel more comfortable knowing why patches to Remote Desktop Connection like KB958470 don't appear in the list (is it just because no one in their right mind would enable it?).

(KB973346 appears in the deleted-files section but doesn't seem to have been removed from the main list.)

The (optional) root certificates update (also included) came up missing as well. Is this expected behavior (I think I've seen that happen after I manually installed that update)?
Several WMP 6.4 updates are listed as missing despite the fact that I slipstreamed in WMP9. I realize that I can probably just ignore them (unless somehow WMP 6.4 is still lurking in my system somewhere and creating a latent vulnerability if I leave it defenseless), but is this expected behavior from HFSLIP (I tried to search this topic for '6.4' but for some reason just kept getting sent to the main forum page)?
I tend just to ignore updates to things like Remote Desktop Connection, Message Queue, and Active Directory that I never plan to use (or even install), which sometimes leads to strangeness (e.g., 937894 listed as missing but not the more recent 951071 which replaced it or the even more recent 971032 which replaced that). Should this be any cause for concern?
Pure curiosity question: 926122 is listed as missing - a server update which I really wouldn't expect my ancient ThinkPad 570E would require. I remember seeing that pop up missing on one other desktop system once, and never on any others: anyone have any idea why?
Thanks for any insights,

To fix this issue, I just place the correct WMP9 version files in i386.
WMP 6.4 is not removed when you add a newer version of WMP.

Having been pestered by Windows Update about WMP 6.4 updates in the past I do understand that installing WMP 9 does not normally remove WMP 6.4, but since HFSLIP in fact does replace files in \i386 and the driver .cab file (and since the HFSLIP instructions emphasize that you should not include WMP 6.4 patches if you've slipstreamed WMP 9) I had tentatively assumed that HFSLIP removed WMP 6.4 when it installed WMP 9 (though in fact HFSLIP refers to WMP 7 rather than 6.4). Since the behavior of WMP in this area differs from that of replacement-style upgrades to IE, OE, and DX, perhaps the instructions could clarify that.

- ← HFSLIP cannot slipstream KB971276. (WinXP x86)
- always the newest SWFLASH.CAB (11.7.700.224, June 2013) →
