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.
