March 6, 2003

[From SQLServer Magazine]

Microsoft announced hotfixes for two known bugs. The article "FIX: Cannot Remove Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine After You Upgrade to MSDE 2000 SP2" (available at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;317619 ) explains that all editions of SQL Server 2000 (Personal, Evaluation, Developer, Standard, and Enterprise) include the build of Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine 2000 (MSDE 2000) on the products' CD-ROMs. If you originally used this build of MSDE and you upgrade to MSDE 2000 Service Pack 2 (SP2), you can't remove MSDE 2000 from the computer.
