SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by the hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package
  • Whether you must restart the computer after you install 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

You use a server that is running Microsoft SQL Server 2000 as a back-end database for a Windows SharePoint Services server. On the server that is running SQL Server 2000, you apply the security update that is described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
948111 MS08-040: Description of the security update for SQL Server 2000 QFE and MSDE 2000: July 8, 2008
In this scenario, when you run the SPSBackup.exe utility to back up the database, the operation fails.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the SPSBackup.exe utility does not check the version of the instance of SQL Server 2000 correctly. The security update changes the version of some .dll files for the instance of SQL Server 2000. When the SPSBackup.exe utility checks the version for those .dll files, the SPSBackup.exe utility considers that the version is outside the usual range.
