one must access the Microsoft Knowledge Base article that describes an

link, just under the KB's title or, download a released hotfix from the
links on the page.

should be able to download the update for French systems:

So, if MS is recommending that this Hotfix be appllied they sure don't
make it easy for one to obtain it for XP and much more difficult to
obtain if for French editions of XP
