Boy oh boy did that make the old brain cells churn. Who would of thought this bit of ancient history would rise once again

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

that one should have been filed under 'pointless', anyone still concerned with the Y2K compliance of version 6.5 has bigger issues

I did the right guess! :)

10 Years ago I wasn't SQL Server aware, since then I upgraded myself a few times to what I am now...

I actually remember this one. Thanks for the question. Would you believe that there are still some installs of 6.5 out there in the world?

Jason, I'm actually aware of a few places who are forced by legacy apps to run 6.5....and by the looks of this:

Correct answers: 38% (54)
Incorrect answers: 62% (89)
Total attempts: 143

not too many people were/are aware of the y2k issue on 6.5.

Which really doesnt matter. Because if your where to get any problems because of this you would already have gotten them.

And no i dont know if there where some patches needed for Windows 95/98 to make them Y2K compatible as well either.

Do i care... no.
Is it important... no.
Is it fun... no.
Is it relevant... no.
Did i learn something... no.
Valuable leason... no.
Waste of time... yes.
Is writing this replay pointless... yes.
Is it Friday... YES

And by that note ur forgiven

Although I did get the answer right, I had to pick the closest response to the correct answer.

Technically, it was version 6.50.339 that fixed the Y2K issue. Then, Service Pack 5 came out (version 6.50.415) which was defective and you shouldn't have used it. Then, Service Pack 5a (version 6.50.416) released.

So, you could have fixed the Y2K problem before the release of SP5a if you installed the "Y2K" hot fix to the 6.50.281 (SP4) or 6.50.297 versions.
