IS8 SP2 & MSDE2000 SP3

I've upgraded to IS8 SP2 (about box still says SP1!) and then added the MSDE2000 SP3 (slammer fix).

When I build an InstallScript MSI project and redistribute MSDE2000 I get the following message when I install: "The instance name specified is invalid".
Then it exits!

I took all the defaults when going through the MSDE 2000 merge module wizard.

Any thoughts anyone?

If your about box still says SP1 then the update didn't work. I had to uninstall IS8 and reinstall and apply all the service packs a couple of times before it all upgraded properly.

As for your MSDE troubles, does the workstation you are trying to install on already have an instance of MSDE installed?
