Unable to install SP3 on SQL 2005 due to Database Services language being blank

Hi all,   I have an issue that requires me to upgrade to a later SP (currently on RTM), but when I try to install SP3 Database Services cannot be ticked. Upon inspection I see that its reporting "This update requires language ENU.  The language for this product instance MSSQLSERVER is . Download the upadte for langage .", when I check teh Language field to the right it is blank, other parts however are fine and can be upgraded. Can you advise please as I don't know how to manually set the language (which is reported inside SQL itself as English (United Kingdom)) and I cannot un/reinstall. Thanks, John

I have been trying to figure out how to fix this problem for the past couple of days and I was unable to find an answer to my specific problem in the forum.My OS is Windows XP Professional SP3 on MacBook Pro, using Parallels Desktop 4.0. Every single time Windows update tries to install SQL Server 2005 SP2, it fails. I am using Business Contact Manager with Outlook 2007 and SQL Server stops randomly and I am forced to restart the software. I am not sure if it is relevant to this specific problem but I thought I would make a note of this.I have downloaded SP2 and tried to install it locally but that did not work. Here is the error message I get:OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 (Build 2600)Package Language: 1033 (ENU)Package Platform: x86Package SP Level: 2Package Version: 3042Command-line parameters specified:     /quiet     /allinstancesCluster Installation: No**********************************************************************************Prerequisites Check & StatusSQLSupport: Passed**********************************************************************************Products Detected                         Language  Level  Patch Level       Platform  EditionExpress Database Services (MSSMLBIZ)      ENU       SP1    2005.090.2047.00  x86       EXPRESS**********************************************************************************Products Disqua

Unable to install SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services Service Pack 4 (KB2463332)



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.

Thank you!

I am not computer savvy in the least, so please assume I know nothing.

The os is vista and yes before its said I am running it as administrator. Any help/ideas on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
