The next DX4WIN country file will have those two entities re-instated.
Exactly when it gets released depends on my busy schedule. I'll do
the best I can.

Midway and Kure Islands Reinstated as DXCC Entities
On March 31, 2017, the DXCC desk announced the deletion of Midway
Island and Kure Island from the DXCC entities list. The stated reason
for this action was because of changes in the administration resulting
from changes in Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument, formerly
known as the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands Marine National Monument,
of which the Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge and the Battle of
Midway National Memorial, the Hawaii State Seabird Sanctuary at Kure
Atoll, and the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands State Marine Refuge, of
which they are all included.
After further review it has been found that the deletion of these two
entities is not supported by the changes that were made to the
relevant administrations. Therefore, the deletions from the DXCC list
should not have occurred and the two entities, Midway Island KH4 and
Kure Island KH7K, will return to the DXCC list as separate entities.
