Service Pack 4 (SP4) for SQL Server 7 is now available from the Microsoft Web site. The latest service pack addresses specific issues that were discovered in SQL Server 7.0 and Microsoft Data Engine (MSDE) 1.0 since their ship date. Because SQL Server Service Packs are cumulative, SP4 includes all fixes from the previously released service packs; however, SP4 does not include any updates for the online analytical processing (OLAP) services components of SQL Server 7.0. As a result, to get the latest updates of the OLAP components, the OLAP portion of SQL Server 7.0 SP3 will also need to be downloaded and installed.
The complete list of issues fixed by SQL Server 7.0 SP4 is available at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q313980&. The SP4 download includes updated Data Engine, database client utilities (such as SQL Server Enterprise Manager and osql), and database client connectivity components.
SP4 can be downloaded at:http://www.microsoft.com/sql/downloads/sp4.asp.
