Q: Do you have any patches for Windows Server 2000 running Exchange 2000? Do you have the procedure manually run the update on the Exchange 2000?
A: There is a patch available for Win2000.  However it is only available to customers who what purchased the Extended Hotfix Support - DST contract.  $4000 is the cost of the Extended Hotfix Support-DST contract.  That gets you access to ALL DST-related hotfixes for products in the extended support phase of the lifecycle.  That includes Windows 2000, Exchange 2000, Outlook 2000, and Outlook 2002.  You can purchase EHS-DST by calling 800-MICROSOFT.  Otherwise you can follow the manual workaround described in

For Windows 2000, you can also follow KB914387 to manually patch your Windows 2000 OS. For Exchange 2000 CDO patch there is no alternative. The Exchange CDO update is a binary.  There is no work around for it.
