I am not a techie but have been unable to install the update above. I don't know how to look at registry keys, etc. Is there an easy fix to this problem? Does it really matter if this update is installed?
I know this problem has been encountred by many others, but I have not seen a solution yet. There must be a simple way to fix it. If not I will stick with Apple.
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 4 (KB2463332) wont install
1. I have tried the installation mutiple times with the same result.
2. I have tried a manual installation that also failed.
3. I have a windows XP with all the latest updates except this one.
4. If you have a solution please give detailed infomation on the fix so I can follow a known procedure to fix the problem.
Rookie here. Using SQL for an eBay software program we have been running for two years. There were simple step by step instructions to install -- point being, I really dont understand this stuff.
Running Windows XP SP3.
Automatic Updates is trying to install the version shown in the Title of this message. It fails to install and gives me the error:
SQL BPA command line has encountered a problem and needs to close.
I do not know where to access the error log. I will post if someone can tell me the correct one to find. In the following directory, C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\, there are directories for MSSQL.1, MSSQL.2 and MSSQL.3. Two of them show log directories
with today's date.
Any and all help is very much appreciated.
This is what I've been trying to install:
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 4 (KB2463332) for three days now. I have followed directions from the Microsoft web site and from the few who responded - nothing has worked. The last question I received yesterday was a response
from asked if this is what I had:
However, I'm not sure; therefore, I am listing what I do have. I don't know if anything listed below connects to that web address or not or even where to go to find it.
What I have on the computer is: Microsoft SQL Server 2005,
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition (ENU) ,Microsoft SQL Server Native Client, Microsoft SQL Server Set Up Support Files (English),Microsoft
SQL Server VSS Writer. Therefore, I am wondering that since I don't downloaded any other Service Pack is why this one refuses to install. Thanks for your help and please put responses in plain English - not a computer wiz.
