Which version of SQL Server are you trying to update?
Only apply the files needed.
a.. Sql2ksp3.exe. Updates for database components.
b.. Sql2kasp3.exe. Updates for ysis Services components.
c.. Sql2kdesksp3.exe. Updates for Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine
If you are not using MSDE and don't have ysis Services run sqlksp3.exe
only. It sounds like the MSDE update is trying to install a new instance.
Make sure that you read the readme first!
