128-bit encrypt. - IE 5.0/NT 4.0 SP6

By rgilbert ·
I have a number of new CPQ machines which come with NT 4.0 SP6 pre-installed. They also have IE 5.0 with 56-bit encryption. It cannot install the 128-bit encryption patch and says it will only work with SP 4 or 5. Has anyone seen this or have thefix .... other than D/Ling IE 5.5 ?

Thanks .

You could try d/ling IE 5.5 but I not sure if that will work. It might but I'm not positive if the SP6 is compatible at first. You might want to uninstall the SP6 and downgrade to SP5 then install the IE 5.5 and then upgrade to SP6. Unfortunately NT doesn't offer a broad spectrum of choices.

Thanks for suggsestion. D/Ling 5.5 does work (with SP6). It takes some time but not as much time and effort as downgrading the SP.

If you're in the U.S., you can install the 128 bit version of SP6a.

http://www.microsoft.com/ntserver/nts/downloads/recommended/SP6/128bitX86/default.asp

This will set your OS at the 128 bit level, including IE. You can verify by checking the properties of schannel.dll. If it says "US & Canada", you're at 128.
