Missing/Required binary files on one Web-front-end after installed the CU aug 2010 hotfix?

Hi! I have installed the binary files for CU aug 2010 hotfix in a farm with two web-front-ends. In Central Administration you can see that on Web-front-end one (that also is hosting the Central Administration app) the binary files are missing but not on the second Web-Front-End. The installation went fine on both servers with the exception that I had to reboot the Web-Front-end one. When I try to run Psconfig to update my databases I get en error message like this in my command prompt. The upgrade command is invalid or a failure has been encountered. The server farm will not work with missing installs. Add "-cmd installcheck -noi nstallcheck" to the command-line to ignore this warning. The following is missing on web-front-end one: Hotfix for Office (KB2352342) Hotfix for Office (KB2352342) Hotfix for Office (KB2352342) Hotfix for Office (KB2352342) Hotfix for Office (KB2352342) Hotfix for Office (KB2352342) Hotfix for Office (KB2352342) Hotfix for Office (KB2352342) In the event log I get a lot of these errormessages too (EventID 3351): SQL database login for 'SharePoint_Config' on instance 'SqlAliasName' failed.

The thing is that the files is installed in the filesystems aswell as the dll files in the GAC on both servers. You can´t unistal

.net3.5sp1 hotfix.

Hi everyone, I've a custom library written in .NET 40 that implements a WCF client to connect to a JAVA Web Service. For interoperability reasons I have to set to true the EnableUnsecuredResponse of a custom asymmetric binding element. Now, because my customer have Visual Studio 2008 and a lot of servers with .NET Framework 3.5SP1 installed, I try to 'downgrade' the project to that framework. The property above isn't present in that framework but, I read on some other posts, there is a fix from Microsoft that enable that feature on 3.5SP1. The fix (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971493) is there but I can't download it from everywere. After some searches, I find a downloadable hotfix rollup at Code Gallery but is only for Windows 7 and WindowsServer 2008 r2: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/KB981002 Something similar for Windows XP/ Windows Server 2003 ? Maybe someone can help me? Thanks in advance, Gianni Ghezzi.

SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack or Hotfix for ReportExecutionService2005 broken with IMAGE/EMF

Posted by edwardforgacs on 8/23/2010 at 4:13 AM
Vlad_MSFT, any update on the ExecutionInfo.NumPages workaround? It's well over a month since you posted to this thread and by the looks of it I'm not the only person who is unable to get any useful information out of that.

As Bob_eBlueprint mentioned, it always seems to return zero. Do you actually have a tested code sample where it works?
Posted by edwardforgacs on 7/20/2010 at 2:11 AM
Yes, ExecutionInfo does not return the number of pages properly either. I have tried every possible combination including GetExecutionInfo, GetExecutionInfo2, before and after render, and combined with Render, and Render2. Guess we need to open another bug about GetExecutionInfo not working in 2008 either?
Posted by Bob_eBlueprint on 7/9/2010 at 10:32 AM
I tried using the code posted by JasonRAC, but I am not getting an exception thrown when I try to render a page that doesn't exist. Instead a zero byte array is returned. So I'm using code like this to stop rendering when the end of the report is researched:

        Dim DidPageLoad As Boolean
        Dim TempPage As Byte()

Hotfix request links to Cumulative Updates 9 and 10 for SP1 do not work


Last week I was able to obtain CU9 for SQL Server 2008 SP1.  This week, I cannot even make a request for CU10 or CU9.  Since Saturday, I have received the following reply whenver I click on a hotfix link:  Hotfix Request
The system is currently unavailable. Please try back later, or contact support if you want immediate assistance.http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support

If I attempt to contact support in any way, they want to charge me.  What is going on?

SQL 2005 32 SP3 hotfix on 64 bit OS issue

Unable to request Cumulative Update or any hotfix


I need to install the Feb 2010 CU for SharePoint 2007 (x86). This is KB978395. When following the link to request the hotfix, I am presented with the error message "The system is currently unavailable. Please try back later, or contact support..." I have tried accessing for several days. Have checked firewall settings, turned off anti-virus. Tried using Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, IE8, Firefox, Chrome - all with the same result. Although this particular update is what I need (to get a development VM to the same build number as a client's production system for troubleshooting a problem), ANY hotfix request returns the same error. I am in New Zealand, but have used this service fine in the past. The specific URL in question is http://support.microsoft.com/kb/978395 (but any hotfix request has the same problem). A search on the error message shows other people routinely have the same problem.

Any help would be appreciated.



I am facing the following error:

"Hotfix installer has stopped working" when i try to install the MS SQL Server 2005 update using Windows Update.

Please help.


Thank you


The Business Data Connectivity metadata store is unavailable. (WCF hotfix is installed)

Trying to create an External Content Type in SPD and received this message.  I did some research and installed WCF hotfix and still got this message.  After some more troubleshooting, determined that it is related to SSL because when I open the non-SSL site (same site just http instead of https), I CAN create the External Content Type.  Has anyone seen this and have a solution?  Thanks in addvance for you help.

.Net 3.5 SP1 Hotfix for KB981574


I got the hotfix for KB981574 but looking at the naming convention of NDP20SP2-KB981574-x64, is this the wrong hotfix?  I'm wondering because it seems to be for .Net 2.0 SP2 and not 3.5 SP1 like the article says.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/981574/

Any ideas?
