Microsoft Describes the 32-bit SQL Server Hotfix Installer

Microsoft has released an article that describes the 32-bit SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 7.0 hotfix installer. The installer's used to apply hotfixes to stand-alone or clustered instances of SQL Server 2000 or SQL Server 7.0. And the hotfix installer only runs on computers that are running Microsoft Windows 2000 or later version of the Windows OS. You can't use the installer for Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE) or 64-bit SQL Server 2000. Hotfixes for SQL Server are packaged and delivered as self-extracting executable files. The hotfix installer helps you install hotfixes by using a GUI-based setup program. The installer can also run unattended to automate the hotfix installation process for your entire organization. To learn more about the hotfix installer, read the Microsoft article "Description of the 32-bit SQL Server 7.0 and SQL Server 2000 hotfix installer" at
