What is cross version instances ?

      I am in the process of preparing a document for upgrading our SQL Server 2000 servers to SQL Server 2008, I read the details in the technet SQL Server 2008 online books, but I didn't understand the below line, can anyone explain this
in simple words to understand ?
Cross-version instances of SQL Server 2008 are not supported. Version numbers of the Database Engine, Analysis Services, and Reporting Services components must be the same in an instance of
SQL Server 2008.
Is that possible to have different version number of database engine during upgrade ?
With regards,
With regards, Gopinath.

Once you have installed SQL Server with specific features (Reporting Services, etc.) and have
applied service packs and updates, you then may want to add new features like Analysis services from the initial SQL Server media but those new features you will install won’t have the same build (version) number as the other features that received the updates/service
packs. Once you add new features, you need to reapply all updates/service packs to the instance.
The database engine will only have one specific build number at a time during the upgrade process.
Hope this helps.

    If you're running Windows 7, install this patch
    And only use the driver from the system manufacturer's website or Windows Update. Do not use the latest drivers from NVIDIA's website for the IQ700 series

    Dear new users of PC Suite

    The file (normaly) can be found at the following location:
    C:\Program Files\PC Connectivity Solution\ServiceLayer.exe. Right click on it for properties -> version.

    I checked that by myself. ServiceLayer version Product v. 3.4.

  • What is current version of Ilustrator for Mac.

    I have 17.0.2 installed. I see references here of 17.1. In my user folder "Library/Application Support/Adobe/AAMUpdater/1.0/Data/AdobeIllustrator17-mul/17.3" I see this.
    The CC app is so screwed up you never know for sure what the current version of software is.
    This morning I find a 14.2 update for PS, a 9.2 undate for ID but no update for IL.
    So what is the current version version of IL.

    Why can't you just post updates like you used to do instead of trying to depend on a half a$$ working app like CC.
    If the updates are posted where? Give me a link.
    We were receiving some requests for these, readers asking us to post the individual CC product updates (as Adobe used to do with older releases)... 
    So we put together two complete patch download lists ourselves with all updates for all Creative Cloud apps – here they are and hope they help:

  • What is the version of Firefox that I have? Firefox 3?

    '''What is the version of Firefox that I have?
    Is it Firefox 3 or above?'''

    Try out Help->About Firefox
    If it needs updating, it'll update from there, or at least tell you it's version number
    Note: you may need to 'restart' Firefox
    According to the Firefox website, 32.0.3 is the 'current' non-[https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/faq/ ESR] version
    (at least for my system as of this post)
    Was this 'message' or 'notification' from a website, or a website ad?
    Just in-case, You may want to run a real virus check on your system. (not from some random ad, check with a 'geek' for help with this.)
    Typically, don't trust random downloads that just come to you while you surf.
