INSTALLING WINDOWS NT 3.5 SERVICE PACK 3

ALPHA, MIPS, or x86 Single Disk Upgrade

Copy the self-extracting file to a directory on your hard drive and type the name of the self-extracting file with a "-d" switch after it. For example, to decompress the file, SP3_35I.EXE, enter the following command:

   SP3_35I.EXE -d
		


After the service pack has been decompressed, run the UPDATE.EXE program to install the updated files.

x86 3.5-inch Disk Set Upgrade



  1. Copy the following files to a directory on your hard disk drive:
    35SP3D1.EXE
    35SP3D2.EXE
    35SP3D3.EXE
    35SP3D4.EXE
    35SP3D5.EXE
    35SP3D6.EXE
    35SP3D7.EXE
    35SP3D8.EXE
    NT35SP3.EXE
  2. Run the NT35SP3.EXE program.
  3. Run the MK35SP3.BAT batch file to create the update disks.

    NOTE: You need eight formatted 1.44 MB 3.5" disks for this procedure.
  4. Read the README.TXT file and proceed as directed.
If you prefer to upgrade direct from your hard disk but cannot download the 9 MB file, you may download the 3.5-inch files and manually extract them (with the -d switch) to your hard disk drive and then install Service Pack 3 without using floppy disks.

RAS Software Compression Drivers Included with Service Pack 3

Windows NT 3.5 Service Pack 3 includes RAS software compression drivers for Windows NT version 3.1 and Windows for Workgroups version 3.11 clients.

ASYNCMAC.SYS supports software compression over RAS on Windows NT and Windows NT Advanced Server version 3.1. ASYNCMAC.SYS should be installed in the %SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS directory.

NOTE: Microsoft has not tested this ASYNCMAC.SYS file on computers running Windows NT 3.1 with Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3, and makes no guarantees as to its performance.

RASMAC.386 supports software compression over RAS on Windows for Workgroups 3.11. RASMAC.386 should be installed in the %Windowsroot%\SYSTEM directory.

To install these drivers, back up your current files with the same name or rename them and copy the corresponding new file in its place. Restart your computer.
