[Release] Internet Explorer 8 x64 AddOn v2014-12_1

If Microsoft keeps with their schedule of IE updates every other month then we can expect v2009-09_1 to be very short-lived...

I am curious what tool did you use to create this addon?

All of the new source files then needed to be segregated into DLLs and non-DLLs. Most non-DLLs ended up in IE8.CAB within the addon for installation through 5erIE8.inf. I used jdoe's CAB Tool to create IE8.CAB for use in the addon. The rest of the new source files needed entries added to entries_IE8x64.ini which was written from scratch.
I then checked update.inf within the installer to see where all the files that needed to be added would be installed. My INF (5erIE8.inf) is a heavily modified version of the original update.inf. I removed all unused sections, then removed entries in the INF for most preexisting files and new source DLLs since entries_IE8x64.ini would handle the chore of installing the new DLLs. And I added some sections used by others such as Sereby, YumeYao and MrNxDmX custom-tailored to XPx64.
Some editing of the original ie.inf source file was necessary for Windows to recognize the new IE version. The edited file was added to the addon.
7-Zip was used to package all of the files into a single addon.
Finally, much testing with VMware Server 1.0.9 to make sure everything works as it should.
This isn't a complete history of the steps I took, or the troubleshooting that was performed. But it does basically describe the process I used.

I'd consider adding it if Microsoft had an XPx64 installation package available for it, atolica, but I can't find one on support.microsoft.com, download.microsoft.com, or any reference to such a package within WindowsUpdate.log in %SystemRoot%.
If I could find a package for it, though, it would end up in the update pack. KB898461 is an operating system update, not an update for Internet Explorer.
