In tip 3599 ยป Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 7 will NOT be released?, I reported that Microsoft would be releasing a Security Rollup Package (SRP), instead.

The SRP was released at Knowledge Base article Q299444:


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server, Enterprise Edition version 4.0 SP6a
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 4.0 SP6a


SUMMARY

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. Applying the SRP does not change the encryption level of your computer.

If you add optional services, you must reapply the Windows NT 4.0 service pack and then the SRP. For additional information, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Q196269 When to Reinstall a Service Pack
If you need to add optional services, follow these steps:
  1. Install all optional services and companion services. You will be prompted for the original Window NT 4.0 media.


  2. After the files are installed from the original media, but before you start your computer, reinstall Windows NT 4.0 SP6a. You must reinstall SP6a before you reinstall the SRP because the SRP requires SP6a.


  3. Restart your computer.


  4. Reinstall the SRP.


  5. Restart your computer.


  6. Install other post-SP6a hotfixes as necessary.
