Unanswered: SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3a Question
There are three separate downloads for this:
1) Sql2ksp3.exe. Updates for database components.
2) Sql2kasp3.exe. Updates for Analysis Services components.
3) Sql2kdesksp3.exe. Updates for Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE 2000).
Number 2 makes perfect sense. Analysis Services is separate from the rest of the database.
What is the difference between 1 & 3? What is the Desktop Engine, how do I know if I'm using it, and how do I know if it has already been patched?
If you don't know if you are using Desktop Engine, then you probably aren't using it (unless somebody else installed it on your PC without your knowing about it.)
OK, I'm not using it and I don't need to update it. That's exactly what I wanted to know. Thanks!
