The Wrecking Bawl Destructuring query language, one keyword at a time.

It took me a month, but I finally figured out how to get SP1 for SQL Server 2005 installed on my test server: by installing SP2.  I was getting errors (something about Debug registry and some other stuff) from setup on the Database Engine upgrade for SP1.  So I tried going directly to SP2, and got a new error.  Turns out I had to delete the msi file from C:\Windows\Installer that was mentioned in the log file.  Not sure if that was the problem for SP1, but SP2 is cumulative, so whatever.

UPDATE Feb. 19, 2007: SQL Server 2005 SP2 RTM has been released!
