1 Day left for Windows 2000 Support…

With official support for Windows 2000 ending June 30th, 2005 Microsoft is cramming to make the most of it’s final days, or so it seems. Just released:


Microsoft Security Advisory (891861) (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/891861.mspx)

Release of Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 (SP4)


Just in time. Here is the link to the KB http://support.microsoft.com/kb/891861 which will allow you to download the rollup.


Notice that this is a rollup; service packs for Windows 2000 are a thing of the past.


Do you think Microsoft is trying to get everyone on Windows Server 2003 or what?

One thought on “1 Day left for Windows 2000 Support…

  1. After I istalled 891861 I can no longer access the internet nor SQL server 2000 on 2 of my Windows 2000 boxes.

    I can remote into my boxes, but cannot access the internet from with inthe boxes once connected.

    Sql server is installed on both boxes and cannot be accessed, started, unistalled, or reinstalled.

    Suggestions? randy_jones01@hotmail.com
