How to Download

  1. Click the Download Now button at the top or bottom of this page.
  2. Complete the registration.
  3. Follow the instructions for downloading.

IMPORTANT: Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.01 and Windows NT Service Pack 3 must be installed before you install the Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack. Internet Explorer 4.01 delivers several system level files (DLLs) to Windows NT Server 4.0. These files provide functionality for the Microsoft Management Console, the Java virtual machine and other features. While Internet Explorer 4.01 is required on the system, it does not prohibit your use of other browsers. Service Pack 3 includes a number of new components and application programming interfaces for Windows NT. Click IIS Service Pack 3.0 for more information.

Note for Microsoft Message Queue Server: The Microsoft Message Queue Server (MSMQ) requires Microsoft SQL Server 6.5. An evaluation version of Microsoft SQL Server is provided on the Windows NT Option Pack CD that you can obtain from your nearest software reseller

AFTER viewing the "Read Me First" (above), click on "Next":

The "License Agreement", continue via "Next":




You can select the download method.
Since I like to keep myself control on the download, I selected : Option 2


Select the Operating system: NT Server, NT Workstation or Windows95.
Then click on "Next"
(hidden above behind the drop-down list)


Select the "Language" , then "Next"
(hidden above behind the drop-down list)



Usually, Microsoft downloads are available from multiple site, but
for the "Option Pack" only one download server is available.


I hope you have a fast Internet connection:
