We recently installed  SQL 2005 Express onto a VPS system using Windows 2003 Enterprise ed. 64 bit. We ran into an error and found the fix at the following link:

However, this raised a new question. Our system had the sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof file as opposed to the sqlmgmprovider.mof which is supposed to be present for our version. Is this difference due to the fact that it we are using SQL Express? Is there a difference in the two files other than the name? Is it safe to run SQL Express with the sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof file?
