MS04-003, Microsoft Security Bulletin (MDAC 2.8 SP2 Hotfix)
Posted on 2007-04-04
Dell Server running Windows 2003 Server.
MDAC for Windows 2003 Server.
We used software that scans vulnerabilities on our servers. Microsoft Bulletin MS04-003 was flagged and the hotfix needs to be installed on four of our 2003 Servers. The hotfix was downloaded but when we tried to install it, it gave the following error:
“An error occurred while setup was trying to verify the version of Microsoft Data Access Components currently installed on the machine. Either the version currently installed does not match the version of the hotfix package, or setup was unable to determine the version currently installed.”
You click “Ok” and get the following error:
“An error occurred during setup. For more information you can look at the log file: C:\WINDOWS\dahotfix.log. You may need to contact your product support representative.”
Downloaded and executed MDAC Utility Component Checker. Component Checker detected an “UNKNOWN” version 2.82.3959.0 of MDAC on 3 out of 4 2003 Servers. The forth one had detected “2.8 SP2” version 2.82.1830.0.
I’m sure having an “UNKNOWN” version is why I’m having trouble installing the hotfix but why is the fourth one having the same problem.
I compared versions with another 2003 Server that is not having this problem. Version 2.82.1830.0 seems to be the correct version.
How do I change the MDAC version to the correct one so I can install the hotfix for Microsoft Bulletin MS04-003?
