I am installing MS PerformancePoint Server 2007, as a part of the prerequisits, they have asked in install Cumulative update package 3 for SQL Server 2005 SP2, i got the download link from microsoft mailed to me,
the zip self extractor i downloaded is not working as expected.

Is it necessary to install this update?

    As this is a cumulative package, instead you can go for SQL Server 2005 SP3 form the link below:

    Further more issues have been resolved in SP3 nearly 9 CU's. The one which you have provided has only 3 CU's.
