Problem installing Cumulative Update 6 for SQL 2008 SP1 on Windows XP

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I am attempting to apply SQL Server 20008 SP1 Cumulative Update 6 on my Windows XP desktop. The update executable is unpacked and I get a brief flash of a Command Screen and then nothing. I have searched for any update files but have not found any. My Desktop Configuration: Windows XP SP3, Windows Installer 4. SQL Server 2008 SP1 Developer Edition. I am also attempting to install the Client Tools for SQL 2008R2 on this same desktop and am getting the same results. I click on SETUP and get a brief flash of the Command Screen and the installation does not continue. Internet searches speak of a problem with a registry entry in the Boostrap Key for a valid Setup directory, but this key exists in my desktop registry. Thanks,

SQL Server 2008 offline while installing Cumulative update


I've been asked to install SQL 2008 CU 10 for SP1 and was wondering if the sql server is still available during the install of the cumulative update.  Is a restart necessary after installing a cumulative update?  I don't have a test machine and I need to apply it to a production server.


Problem Installing SQL Server 2008 on Windows Server 2008 R2

I have a fresh install of Server 2008 R2.  I am attempting to install SQL Server 2008 (x64).  Both products downloaded in the last couple of days via MAPS.

On my first attempt at a SQL installation, a dialog box pops up warning of "compatibility issues".  I searched for a solution, and it was suggested to install SQL 2008 SP1, before re-running the main SQL setup, and then to apply SP1 again after SQL Server is installed.

So, I have installed SQL 2008 SP1 with no problems.  When I then ran the main SQL setup, it tells me that I need to install .NET 3.5.  So, I do this from Server Manager -> Add Features (.NET Features 3.5.1).  That installs fine.  I then re-run SQL setup, and it tells me that I need to apply .NET 3.5 SP1.

I then downloaded .NET 3.5 SP1 and when I try to apply it, it tells me that I must use the "Role Management Tool" to install .NET 3.5 SP1.

This is where my problem lies.  Is .NET 3.5.1 (as previously installed using the Role Manager) not the same as .NET 3.5 SP1?  If so, then why does the SQL Server installer tell me that I need to install it, when it is already installed?

I am well and truly stuck at this point.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Installing service pack for SQL 2008 (SQL 2008 R2) after cumulative update packages



First of all, sorry for my English. I have a question.

Whether we should first remove cumulative update packages before install service pack in SQL 2008 (SQL 2008 R2) as it was in SQL 2005?

 I don't found such information in available links, for example http://support.microsoft.com/kb/958734/en-us

Sharepoint 2003 + Windows Terminal Server 2008 + Office 2007 problem?

Hi, We have a customer where some users runs Windows Terminal Server 2008 with Office 2007. They open documents from a Sharepoint 2003 site. When they open an excel sheet they get a button in the document which says "Server workbook: Click edit workbook to edit this workbook" and there is a button: "edit workbook" The users clicks "edit workbook" but get an error message saying there is no connection to the server.  They are able to edit the document, but not save it back to the sharepoint site. Most other users work on their local computer with Office 2003. Here, everything works fine and there are no button/message stating its a server workbook.   Is this caused due to some compatability issues between Sharepoint 2003 and Office 2007?   Best regards, Thomas Hansen ErgoGroup AS

SQL*Server 2008 SP1 applied but still tries to download and install from Windows Update

I had previously posted this on the windows update forum and was advised here was more appropriate. I have installed SQL*Server Express 2008 on laptop with windows7 and appled the SP1 update. This shows as applied correctly when looking at programs/updates from control panel, update logs. The management console confirms version 10.1.2531 is running. Each time I use windows update  the service pack is listed as needing download / install - the same KB968369 is given as the reference. I have run this a couple of times but the update is shown as outstanding each time. Any ideas how to resolve this? Thanks Colin

Error installing SQL Server 2008 R2 on a Windows 7 Ultimate 32 machine

HI all, I'm installing the Developer edition of MS SQL Server 2008 R2 (downloaded today) on a Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit virtual machine (using VMWare Workstation 6.5).  Yesterday I had tried MS SQL Server 2008 R0 with the same results.  Both give an error about 30% into the installation process: "An error occurred during the installation of assembly 'VSLangProj80,Version="",PublicKeyToken="b03f5f7f11d50a3a",Culture="neutral",FileVersion="8.0.50727.1826"' When I click the OK button, the install rolls that last bit back and then continues.  Unfortunatly I didn't take a screenshot of the main install window, just the error window. Any ideas what this error means?  The install yesterday seemed to work, but I'm not through the R2 install yet.  The R0 install also failed to install the documentation for some reason (I left it running during the night) Note that I have VS2010 (original release plus downloaded updates) installed and then just some small stuff like Snagit and Skype on this VM.  I updated Windows 7 completely before I started installing R2 so it is completely up to date as of midnight!

I have some 32bit Dlls which i want to use it in 64bit OS as i do not have a source code of this to recompile it for 64 bit OS.

Whenever i try calling this WCF from the client I get an error as given below.Can anybody please guide as to where I am going wrong and what is needed to solve this issue.
