Is this the sp4 for sql 2005 exp Adv?

Hi, I'm using windows 2008 enterprise server.  I just installed  sql 2005 exp Adv and I need to install sp now for it.  At this site, http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=26435597-b28e-4568-9d16-017bdf47abdc
Is the file, SQLEXPR_ADV.EXE, a service pack for  sql 2005 exp Adv that I should download and install?  Thanks.

On point 1, Is it 64 bit version of Windows server 2008? If yes then you need to download and install x64 version of SQL else x86.
On point 2, yes service pack will work - as it's not x64 or x86 specific.

Here are more details to choose which file is appropriate for you:

The 32-bit version of SP4 can be used to update 32-bit instances that run in Windows-on-Windows 64 (WOW64) x86 emulation mode on a 64-bit system. The 32-bit version will not upgrade any components of a 64-bit instance of SQL Server 2005. To upgrade all components of a 64-bit instance of SQL Server 2005, use the 64-bit version of SP4.
 
SP4 packages Operating systems*  
x86
 All supported 32-bit Windows operating systems, including 32-bit instances on 64-bit operating systems.
 
x64
 Supported Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 64-bit X64 editions.
 
IA64
 Supported Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 64-bit Itanium editions.
 
Details at http://download.microsoft.com/download/B/7/3/B73AFEF4-1A6C-42E6-B5A8-CBF990687A9E/ReadmeSQL2005SP4.htm

I hope it works.
