Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2000 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2000 fix release.


This article describes the following about this hotfix release:

  • The issues that are fixed by the hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package
  • Whether you must restart the computer after you install the hotfix package
  • Whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Whether you must make any registry changes
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package


You may experience one or more of the following symptoms in Microsoft SQL Server 2000:

  • You cannot connect to an instance of SQL Server. Or, you can connect to an instance of SQL Server. However, the connection is slow.
  • You cannot stop the SQL Server service.
  • Many minidump files are generated.
  • Many log files are generated in the SQL Server log folder.


This issue occurs because an access violation occurs when SQL Server tries to update the performance monitor counters.
