I hope you can help.
I'm trying to install service pack 4 to my installation of sql server 2000 on a 32bit windows 2003 server.
I've downloaded the English service pack and when I run the exe I get the following error.

"This service pack is meant for a different language than your installed product."

I've checked the registry and as far as I can see the language for my instance of sql is 2057 which I believe is British English.
I've checked the language inside SQL Server and it also says British.

Can anyone help me out with this problem as I can't seem to resolve it.

You may have already checked this page, but googling for that error message brought up this KB article:

Hi Sunitabeck,

I've checked this page but it doesn't really say anything helpful. I've checked these details and I can see what language is being used and I've downloaded the enu.exe and it still comes up with this error.
I don't know whether this article is suggesting that I change the registry values from British english to us english?
