You are required to update your SQL 2005 to SP3. Unfortunately my screen shots are gone so you’ll have to try this yourself. Its straightforward but if you bump into any questions just post a comment here.

NOTE! SQL2005 Standard SP3 is a cumulative update, you are not required to install the previous service packs.
