A. This happens only on SQL 6.0 SP3. There is no fix, but theworkaround is :-

  1. Stop SQL Server

  2. Rename sqlservr.exe in binn to sqlservr.sp3

  3. Copy the sqlservr.exe from your SQL 6.0 CD into binn

  4. Re-start SQL Server. It should now recover ok.

  5. Stop SQL Server

  6. Rename binnsqlservr.exe to sqlservr.org for later use

  7. Rename binnsqlservr.sp3 to sqlservr.exe

  8. Re-start SQL Server
