Installing licenced 6.5 over demo
Posted on 1998-11-27
I currencly have SQL 6.5 demo installed. I also installed Service Pack 4.
I have since puchased a licenced version of SQL Server 6.5. When I try to install it, I get the following message:
"This version should be updated using Service Pack 3."
This doesn't make sense, because I have SP4 installed. If I try to install SP3 again, I get this message:
"The installed version (6.50.281) should be at least 6.50.201 and no higher than 6.50.258."
So essentially the installer is saying that I can't continue until I install SP3, but the SP3 installer is telling me that my version is too new to install SP3.
Anyone know what I can do here? I can't afford to reinstall SQL Server because we have a production application on this machine. We did this because we were assured by our Microsoft rep that we could go to production on our demo because the upgrade would be painless. So far, it has not been painless.
Thanks in advance to anyone with input.
