    Windows NT 4.0 SRP Info

    Posted on by Daniel Petri in Windows Server


    Post-Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 6a Security Rollup Package (SRP)

    Microsoft has released a Security Rollup Package (SRP) for Windows NT 4.0 that includes the functionality from all security patches released for Windows NT 4.0 since the release of Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 6a (SP6a) . This small, comprehensive rollup of post-SP6a fixes provides an easier mechanism for managing the rollout of security fixes. Please refer to Microsoft Knowledge Base article 299444 for more information about this rollup package.

    Front Page Server Extensions
