By mistake my answer was only sent to Peter Tirell, should have been sent
to the list.

Here it is

The pre built Windows installers on are only provided for the
planned releases and patch packages, they are not provided for "emergency"
 between or after the planned releases. 18.3 is the latest pre built
Windows installer for the OTP 18 release track.

In order to apply you have to build from source.

Another possibility if it is tricky to build on Windows, is that you build
from source on Linux and then copy the only application changed by the
patch to your Windows system under ERl_ROOT/lib or somewhere else if you
point it out with erl -pa <Path>

Since OTP 20.2 is just a patch it only lists in its README what has been
fixed since the last patch , which was 20.1.7 containing a fix for
OTP-14748. You can look i the release notes for the ssl application in OTP
20.2 and find that OTP-14748 is mentioned there.

So there is a Windows build, namely 20.2 which includes the patch you are
looking for.
