Applying 2008 x64 SP2.0 to administrative image

Hi, thanks for taking the time to help.

I have made an admin image of my SW 2008 x64 Edition DVD (essentially a copy of all the files and folders on the DVD, now in one folder on my C:\ drive) - total size of around 5.70GB.

I have downloaded the service pack 'sw2008-0.0-2.0-x.exe' with the intention of applying it to the admin image.

When I start 'swspmanager.exe' from the 'sw2008-0.0-2.0-x.exe' archive go through the usual steps ('Upgrade an installation of SolidWorks' > 'Upgrade an administrative image of SolidWorks' > 'Open...').

The problem arises because the 'Open' dialog box only allows me to choose an MSI file, whereas the only installer files I can find in the various folders of the admin image ('setup', 'sldim', etc) have the extensions MSP or EXE.

How can I upgrade the administrative image from SP0.0 to SP2.0?

Many thanks.
