MORE INFORMATION

The checked version of a product is distributed with Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) products and to most vendors, as opposed to the retail version distributed to most customers. The checked version contains more debugging information in the code, which is helpful for tracking down problems to a certain source file and number.

A checked service pack must be loaded onto a checked version of that operating system. For example, you must load a checked version of SP5 onto a checked version of Windows NT 4.0. You cannot load a checked version of SP5 onto a retail version of Windows NT 4.0.
