when I put KB2681116 to HF folder it says;
Found wrong, obsolete or unknown update(s)
but on here;
Found non-existing update(s) for Windows XP SP3
I think there is a typo.

I found another typo. The script expects version 4.5.6000 of MRT instead of 4.6.6000...
BTW, it is also flagging my WindowsXP-KB2681116-X86-ESN.exe as unknown

Currently there are three active time-zone-updates on the list. The reason ist that KB2681116 is 'just' a hotfix, KB2657025 is optional and only KB2633952 is a high-priority update. I wrote hints to all of these updates.
And also the file-checker knows that:
KB2681116 replaces KB2657025 and KB2633952
KB2657025 replaces KB2633952

I know the script supports the three, but in reality, a user would be OK with just 2681116.
Without wanting to put words into Mim0's mouth, I think he means that:
1. he retains 2657025 in his list for those who don't install hotfixes (as opposed to updates that are generally available, e.g. the ones you don't have to request).
2. he retains 2633952 in his list in deference to Microsoft, who categorises it as a high-priority update (whereas Microsoft calls 2657025 only "optional").
It's true that 2681116 replaces them both. But not everyone will install hotfixes. Microsoft does not test hotfixes (that you have to request) as thoroughly as it tests other updates. On some systems/configurations, some hotfixes have been reported to cause problems. One or two members here don't have a good word to say about them. Having said that, my own experience with hotfixes has been almost entirely trouble-free.
