Just a quick not to let you know that the SP2 update for SQL Express, SQL Express with Advanced Services and SQL Express Toolkit are being published to Microsoft Update today. These are automatic updates and will apply to computers based on your Microsoft Update settings for automatic updates. (i.e. Notify, Download and Notify or Download and Install)

The updates will also be part of WSUS so that IT Administrators have control over deployment of these updates throughout an Enterprise.

When applied through Microsoft Update or WSUS, the Express SP2 updates will discover the list of installed features on an instance and update those features appropriately. Additionally, Microsoft Update will detect and update all instances of SQL Express at the same time. This is different from the UI version of the Express SP2 update which must be run seperately for each instance of SQL Express installed on your computer.
