SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by this hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for applying the hotfix package
  • Whether you must restart the computer after you apply the hotfix package
  • Whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Whether you must make any registry changes
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package

SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You run Microsoft SQL Server 2000 together with the Full Text Search component.
  • You start the filtering daemon (Mssdmn.exe) to parse Microsoft Office Word documents.
In this scenario, the Mssdmn.exe process may use lots of CPU capacity.

Note You can view the CPU capacity that this process uses by viewing the contents of the Processes tab in Windows Task Manager.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because of a problem in the Office filter. The Office filter returns inconsistent results to the SQL protocol handler. Therefore, the SQL protocol handler repeatedly calls a particular function. The SQL protocol handler repeatedly calls this function until the filtering process times out.
