How to back down a Service Pack.

By mbradley91 ·
How can a Service Pack be 'backed-down' to a lower version once it has been applied? An example in this case would be: Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 has been applied and the Microsoft Jet 4.0 Service Pack 7.0 that is within the Win2000 SP4, needs to backed-down to a lower versin than the Jet 4.0 Service Pack 7.0.

Thank you very much!

Unless the "rollback" option was selected at the time SP4 was installed your only option is to reformat and reinstall the OS and then SP3.

To remove Service Pack 4 by using Add/Remove Programs

Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click Add/Remove Programs, click Windows 2000 Service Pack 4, and then click Change/Remove.
Follow the instructions that appear.
When you have completed this process, click OK to restart the computer.


If you choose to remove SP4, a dialog box displays a list of the applications that you have installed since you updated Windows 2000 to SP4. If you continue to remove SP4, these applications might not work correctly.

Multiple descriptions for some applications might appear instead of a single generic description. You should ignore these additional descriptions.
