Possible problem with MS05-052

PSS has found a potential problem with XPE SP1 and SP2 systems after MS05-052 has been added to them using the Desktop QFE Installer versions of the updates. The issue is that ActiveX controls may not activate properly. If you experience this problem, add the following registry keys to your runtime:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Note that you can cut and paste the above snippet into a .REG file and apply it using RegEdit, if it's on your runtime. If not, you can add the keys offline, or using a script.

Also note that you may see this problem with the componentized version - the registry keys are owned by the COM Base component, but I'll do some more investigation and see if I can't resolve this in the components for December.
