    Hi guys,

    I need to upgrade sql2000 rtm to sp4.

    I need the procedure to upgrade to sp4.

    I think there are like 4 diff patches that need to installed based on the settings...

    If you have the 32-bit SQL Server engine or client tools installed, you want Sql2k32sp4.exe.

    If you have the Desktop Engine (MSDE) installed, you want Sql2kdesksp4.exe.

    If you have Analysis Services installed, you want Sql2k32asp4.exe.

    If you are running the 64-bit edition of SQL Server, you want Sql2k64sp4.exe.

    what does this mean....????????

    Those are various flairs of sql server ...

    Go to your server and run print @@version .

    That should provide the information you are asking ...

    If you are a dba and not sure wether you have analysis service

    installed it is very likely you did not install it

    Here is the link for MS SQL Server 2000 sp4 download

    You will need to install the Database Components (Download file: SQL2000-KB884525-SP4-x86.EXE)

    If you have Analysis Services installed along with SQL Server, then also install Analysis Services Components (Download file: SQL2000.AS-KB884525-SP4-x86.EXE):

    These patches are assuming that you have a 32bit system and not 64

    I am having the same problem with installing SP4. After I run all 3 files and reboot, nothing changes in the version.
