Are you talking about .NET Framework V4? If so, go to the Microsoft Download center for the web install.

Otherwise, so far as I know, there is no public Service Pack 4 for XP just yet.

Go here for .NET Framework 4:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=9cfb2d51-5ff4-4491-b0e5-b386f32c0992

You still have not said what you are talking about: .NET Framework or XP SP4 (not out yet).

I do wish you would say in words what you are talking about. This appears to SQL you are looking for.

Specifically: What application do you want SP4 for?

Thank you. ... Thinkpads_User

I told you it said Service Pack 4, but you continue to disagree with me. That is the code that will not download. It says: Security update for  sql server 2000 service pack 4 (KB96082) not installed.

There are multiple Service Packs 4. I am not disagreeing with you. I don't know what you mean. You are not clear at all.

Now assuming we are finally talking about SQL, the KB update you are referring to is for SERVER 2003 for SQL 2000.

It is not for XP, so it will not install on XP.

Okay, thanks. I thought that I was clear. How can I get it to stop saying that I need the update?

That I do not know. All the searching I did on SQL says that SQL 2000 should run on Server 2003 (even if Server 2003 is a test environment). So if you got it running on an XP machine, I don't know how to make it behave. Sorry. ... Thinkpads_User
