A kernel rollup hotfix package is available for Windows XP and Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1). The kernel rollup hotfix package replaces the hotfixes that are listed in the Hotfix Replacement Information
section later in this article, and it corrects the following issues:
- The issues that are described in the articles that are listed in the Hotfix Replacement Information section later in this article
- The issue whereby the user interface for multilingual binary files (such as Comctl32.dll) is displayed in English on computers that run Windows XP Professional Language Interface Pack (LIP)
