SQL Server 2008 Service pack update

Hi All,

This may be a silly question but I am running SQL Server 2008 (NOT R2) dev copy. I have noticed that service pack 3 is available... Could you confirm that if I was to install SP3 that it wouldn't upgrade to R2?

I am guessing not - but its important that I stay clear of R2 for the time being as I need to replicate my web server.

Thanks,

Rich

Sql Server 2008 is to all intents and purposes a completely different version to Sql Server 2008 R2, so no, this isn't a version upgrade. Hope this puts your mind to rest
