Updates failing.

Hi everyone,

A Windows update could not be installed (Error Code 42D9):

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3

So, I downloaded it from:
Download details: SQL Server 2005 Express Edition SP3

I installed it, but the update was still showing and it still wanted to install the update - but I thought that's what I just did manually! Why did it still want to install it?

I hid the update from the Windows Update screen.

The next day, two updates came in - security updates for:
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 and
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2

The update for Service Pack 3 installed successfully but the update for Service Pack 2 failed (Error Code 733F).

I hid the Service Pack 2 update, but it keeps coming back!

What am I supposed to do?

Thanks in advance,

BrassMonkey

1.Reset WU components in aggressive mode How do I reset Windows Update components?
2.Reset WU modules Repair & Fix Windows Updates with Fix WU Utility | The Windows Club
3.Run cmd.exe with administrative previlliges (right click on cmd.exe) as admin and type:

sfc /scannow

4.Run Readiness Tool Description of the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista, for Windows Server 2008, for Windows 7, and for Windows Server 2008 R2
even if this tool don't solve problem it create CheckSur.log file in C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder

If nothing help pack all files from C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder and attache to post or upload on rapidshare.com

Hi Flavius,

Thanks for replying. I tried what you said, but it didn't work. :cry:

I followed the instructions and when it had finished I ran Windows Update. There was one important update - Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3. I tried to install it but it failed again (Error Code 42D9).

I have attached the CBS files, as requested.

Thanks,

BrassMonkey

Seems KB973917 is incorrectly installed.Uninstall this update,make sure you have correct data & time both in system and in BIOS and reinstall this hotfix again

3)It would be also well to reset WU components in aggressive mode How do I reset Windows Update components?
and WU libreries Repair & Fix Windows Updates with Fix WU Utility | The Windows Club

If nothing help empty C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder,again run Readiness Tool and attache to post new CBS.log and CheckSur.log

Hi,

Still didn't work. :( It failed to install "Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3". Same error code: 42D9. I have attached the new CBS.log and CheckSur.log

Thanks for your time with this. I really appreciate it.

Hi,

I don't have a "100" folder. I went to this location - C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server - and could only find an "80" or "90" folder and there's no "Setup Bootstrap" folder in either of those.

However, I found this one - C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\LOG - and I have attached the files.

Is that the right one? Or am I missing something?
