SQL Server SP2 Windows Update fails KB948109

23rd July, 2008 – 8:09 am

It might just be because of my botched SQL Server installation, Vista or the fact I just can seem to rid the laptop I use at work of the evils of SQL Express but if like me you have this update stuck try the following;


1)      Open your Services (CONTROL PANEL | Administrative Tools | Services)

2)      Scroll down and START any services that start SQL Services

3)      If any fail try changing the logon details (right click PROPERTIES | LOG ON) – check the domain, mine was set to the old domain after a recent domain name change in my organisation – I’d changed just enough services to get SQL server working

4)      Rerun the update installation


This thread has some further tips if hte above doesn’t do it for you.




Hope that helps
