Q299444 Update for NT4 Alpha

So far I always thought that Microsoft supported NT4 Alpha until the end of the NT4 platform. But is it possible that they never released the "Q299444 Windows NT 4.0 Post SP6a Security Rollup Pack 1 (SRP1)" update?

https://support.microsoft.com/de-de/hel ... ackage-srp

I can't find anything on it on the internet, not even people complaining about that it would be missing.

Not sure what you are talking about. If you're looking for Q299444 update, download links are in the support page you've referred, they're still alive. Or if you want patch for DECAlpha...cannot find any.

As I wrote, I am looking for the Q299444 update for the Alpha AXP version of Windows NT 4.

I guess, it would be labeled Q299444a.exe. And as Google does not give any results on this, I guess it was never released...

Not quite, Alpha support was dropped shortly after the release of Service Pack 6a. Which also means Alpha users never got Terminal Server Service Pack 6, which was released quite a bit later.

Good to know, thanks! I think it also never got the AD upgrade. At least I have never seen it anywhere.
