SharePoint 2007 October Update failed

Posted on 2009-04-16

I ran the SharePoint 2007 October Cumulative Update. It is supposed to update Microsoft.SharePoint.portal.dll to version 12.0.6331.5000. My version is 12.0.6229.5000 - unchanged since running update. Here is what I have done so far:
Ran all 3 hotfixes in the update
Ran the config wizard
Ran all 3 hotfixes again - all returned message that this update had been applied.

I was going to run the December Cumulative Update anyway, but I cannot download it - the page says there is no update available.

I am now downloading the February 2009 Cumulative Update - maybe that will run correctly.

I am hoping for advice/insight.

    Accepted Solution

    I would suggest to install the latest Cumulattive update which will include all previous Cumulative updates as well.

    December Update has been pulled from the MS download site due to a regression which might cause other / new issues after installing.

    Now the latest is Feb Cumulative update
    For WSS:
    For MOSS:

    SP2 will be release by the end of April.

    Always start with the WSS update first, than MOSS.

    Thank you for replying. Funny thing: I did exactly that after I posted. The notes in the TechNet article ( say that after my microsoft.sharepoint.portal.dll should be at 12.0.6341.5000, but mine is at 12.0.6339.5000. Exactly 2 versions below again.

    However, everything seems to be working, so I am not going to pursue this further.
