    Unanswered: Msde

    Hi Yar,

    This might seem like a silly question but please bare with a newbie. I've discovered a few MSDE installations around the place, & most are on a RTM version. I know no -one else cares about them as they came with small apps. But I would like someone to confirm or deny that they are just as vunerable as any other SQL installation i.e. std edition & should apply the Service Packs ?

    Cheers
    Suze

    Although I've never tried it, I don't think that MSDE will even allow the service to start on Windoze XP without SQL sp3. Yes, without any shadow of doubt, you should apply SQL service packs to MSDE!

    Unlike SQL Server, MSDE has been updated to include SP3. So if its a somewhat new installation it should be patched.

    @ebola: Suze noted on her original post that "most are on a RTM version". So I assumed these are no freshly installed (wiht SP3 included), but rather some older installations (what Suze had found out with osql - "select @@server_version") or something like that.

    I only was regarding/answering exactly this scenario

    @Rudy: Sorry, I'm not a native english speaker - I didn't quite get your comment ? Could you please elaborate a bit ? Did I offend someone in any way ?
    Didn't mean to .. If it was the case, I apologize

    bare = uncover, unsheathe, reveal, strip (i.e. remove clothing)

    bear = carry, sustain; bear with = treat forbearingly (i.e. be patient)
