SQL 2000 post SP4 Hotfix 8.00.2162

A SQL Server 2000 Post SP4 hotfix has just been released to the public. Bringing the SQL Server 2000 version number to 8.00.2162


This hotfix is a cumulative hotfix containing:


  • Hotfixes that were built since SP4 shipped
  • Hotfixes that were done for SP3 but did not make it into SP4 (because of the cutoff date for fixes that made it into service pack SP4)

This build has undergone more testing than a typical hotfix build but not as much as say a service pack.


The build is available at the following download locations:
