MSDE 2000 Versions

I was wondering if any of you guys can kindly help me in finding all
the different versions of MSDE 2000 that came out since it's first
release. I expected to find something similar like Sun's archive
(http://java.sun.com/products/archive/index.html) for MSDE 2000 too
but failed to find after a few hours of browsing at the Microsoft
Download Center (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/s...isplaylang=en).
They seem more into promoting their new MSDE 2000 Release A for the
time being but nothing much about the previous versions of MSDE to
serve my product testing purposes.
All I need is a complete list of different versions of MSDE 2000 with
downloadable links.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Izzy,

MSDE Release A is the first version of MSDE that is actually available for
free download. All previous versions of MSDE came as part of the license for
another Microsoft product, like SQL Server, Office Professional and Web
Matrix.

Also it is Microsoft's policy to have nothing but the most recent version of
a Service Pack available for download, because Service Packs include
important fixes, like for example the fix for the Slammer worm.

As MSDE is intended for use in self contained applications, you should have
an MSDE instance just for use with your own application (you can have 16
instances of MSDE on one machine). Because your application is the only one
that uses that MSDE instance, you can upgrade it at will and the best way of
doing things is to include the latest Service Pack in your installation and
upgrade package. In this way you only have to test your software against the
latest version of MSDE and you don't put your customers at risk of being
infected by Slammer.
