I installed MSDE 2000 SP3 over MSDE 2000 today. Everything seemed to go fine and I was prompted to reboot.

As usual, I ran SELECT @@VERSION on the server and it reported .194 and not .760 as I would expect.

I checked the setup log and it reported successful completion.

When applying SP2 to MSDE I always get a version number of .534

Has anyone else had this problem?

Is one supposed to apply SP2 before SP3? I always thought the updates were cummulative......
