Greetings Experts!  Here is the situation.  I have MSDE SP/3 installed on a Windows 2003 server that I use for Websense.  I am installing SP4 and I can't figure out the command string since the password for the sa account is blank.  Does anyone know the command?

This is what I have so far:
 setup /upgradesp sqlrun /L*v C:\msdelog.log

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hahahaha!!!  I'll give it a shot.  I don't use MSDE very much at all.  Servers, networking, backups...  No prob.  Databases and programming..  Big prob.
