Unanswered: MSDE (SQL 2000) Full Service Pack 1 (2)
I need the “full” Service Pack 1 (or 2) MSDE Installation files to include in an Installer. I am not interested in upgrading current MSDE RTM installs but rather need to install an MSDE SP1 (2) Instance on the client machines. I found a lot of places to get the files… but the weird thing is in the supposed MSDE SP2 download files (SQL2KDeskSP2.exe)… the sample.msi and samplupgr.msi files are missing that are the templates to be used to create the unique (GUID) MSI installation files for MSDE. Microsoft “highly” recommends creating the unique MSI files to ensure a previous instance did not use an MSI file with the same GUID.
