SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4 Now Available

May 06, 2005 SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4 (SP4) adds platform support for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition, allowing 32-bit SQL Server 2000 applications to run on 64-bit platforms using the Windows on Windows emulator (WOW64).

SP4 also addresses specific issues discovered in SQL Server 2000 since its ship date and the first service pack to service the 64-bit edition of SQL Server. Because SQL Server service packs are cumulative, SP4 includes all fixes from previously released Service Pack 1 (SP1), Service Pack 2 (SP2), Service Pack 3 (SP3), and Service Pack 3a (SP3a). SP4 can be applied to an original SQL Server 2000 installation or to one where SP1, SP2, SP3, or SP3a was previously applied. This service pack includes the MS03-031 security bulletin released in July, 2003.

Installation of the update to MSDE 2000 is not straightforward, and details are available from the link above.
