Cumulative Updates available for SQL Server 2008 SP2 & SP3

Today Microsoft has released two new cumulative updates for SQL Server 2008.

Cumulative Update #10 for SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 2

  • Knowledge Base Article: KB #2696625
  • At the time of writing, there is one fix listed
  • The build number is 10.00.4332

Cumulative Update #5 for SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 3

  • Knowledge Base Article: KB #2696626
  • At the time of writing, there are four fixes listed
  • The build number is 10.00.5785

As usual, I'll post my standard disclaimer here: these updates are NOT for SQL Server 2008 R2 (where @@VERSION will report 10.50.xxxx).

      I recently re-imaged my machine to Windows 7, 64-bit.
      Here is my dilemma and I am looking for your guidance.
      I want to run the following versions and editions of SQL Server:
      (a) SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition (x64) (Named Instance = ".\SQLEXPRESS")
      (b) SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition (x64)
      (c) SQL Server 2012 LocalDB (x64)
      (d) SQL Server 2012 Express Edition (x64) (Named Instance = ".\SQLEXPRESS12")
      Can you please provide me with a installation path that can help me run all four of the above versions of SQL Server, with no (major) conflicts?

      Ravi, I would do the following:
      1. Install the older versions first, then the newer versions
      2. Install the express edition before you install the SQL server
      i.e.
      1. SQL Express 2008 R2 as .\SQLEXPRESS2008
      2. SQL Server 2008 R2 as .\SQL2008R2
      3. SQL Express 2012 as .\SQLEXPRESS2012
      4. SQL Server 2012 as .\SQL2012
      Newer installers usually know about older installations, but not vice versa.
