Part VIII: Appendixes > Applying a Windows NT Service Pack

Applying a Windows NT Service Pack

The steps for applying a Windows NT service pack depend on the format of the service pack you acquired. The format of the service pack determines both how the service pack was packaged for you to download, and the methods used to apply the pack. It is up to you to determine and then specify which format service pack you need.

One-File Service Pack

In the one-file format, the service pack is contained in one large, self-extracting file. A self-extracting file is actually one or more files compressed into a single file. This single file has a typical executable extension of EXE like other files that you run or execute. When you run the service pack file, however, all of the files compressed into it are extracted into the directory where you ran the file. These files comprise the service pack.
