What do you exactly do?
AFAIR, there is option (something like) "Recreate format" in MiKTeX

The 'xelatex.ini' file is only needed when format 'xelatex' is built.

Overwrite MiKTeX 'xelatex.ini' file with one taken from SVN.
Recreate format 'xelatex'.
(optional) upgrade polyglossia.

Note: this would work only if between versions 0.9995.1 and 0.9995.2
were not inctoduced new commands (e.g. to make \newXeTeX... commands

	Eeyore, the old grey Donkey, stood by the side of the stream, and
looked at himself in the water.
	"Pathetic," he said.  "That's what it is.  Pathetic."
	He turned and walked slowly down the stream for twenty yards,
splashed across it, and walked slowly back on the other side.  Then he
looked at himself again.
	"As I thought," he said, "no better from *____this* side.  But nobody
minds.  Nobody cares.  Pathetic, that's what it is.
