I am attempting to install MS09-008 onto my Microsoft Server 2003 SE sever but keep receiving this message, "Setup cannot continue because one or more prerequisites required to install KB961063 failed. For More details check the Log File c:\windows\KB961063.log".  Has anyone else encountered this issue? If so, then can you please assist?

You are attempting to install MS09-008: Description of the security update for DNS server: March 10, 2009, yet I would gather that your server isn't being used as a DNS server (which I believe is why you are getting the error).  

The patch is checking the "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\OC Manager\Subcomponents\dns" key to see if you are using a DNS server.  I am assuming that you show a value of 0 that implies that you aren't using the DNS server portion of the server and therefore stops the installation.

Changing the value in "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\OC Manager\Subcomponents\dns" from 0 to 1 and then trying to install the patch should resolve your installation issue by taking care of the prerequisite.

You can change the key back afterwards.
