Reporting Services Install Error: The Report Server requires SQL Server 2000 with Service Pack 3a
Posted on 2004-09-28
I have SQL Server 2000 install on my computer, which is running Windows XP Professional with SP2 installed. To install SQL Server 2000's service pack 3a, I downloaded and installed the following three files from Microsoft web site:
All three installed OK and did not report any problems.
I now want to install the Reporting Services evaluation, so I downloaded RSEVAL.exe from the Microsoft web site. After it unpacks everything it starts the installation. When it gets to the point where it wants to create the report server it gives me the following error and refuses to go further:
The Report Server requires SQL Server 2000 with Service Pack 3a.
* How, in SQL Server, can I verify that it is running SP3a?
* What do I need to do to get past this problem?
