experts,

haveing some difficulties patching one of my servers. Server specs:
windows server  R2, SP2
with a SQL 200 database

it's not a WSUS or a Sharepoint server, so I'm not sure if i even need KB960082. WSUS has flagged that it needs to be installed on the server however??

i tried downloading it and installing it and got the same errors explained here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/967092/en-us. i applied the fix they recommended and took out the "quiet" parameter and am now getting this error:

SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine Setup
--------------------------------------------------------------
This product is not installed. Check if a appropriate instance of MSDE is installed.

i've used variations of this:

SQLWMSDE-KB960082-x86-ENU /quiet /upgradesp sqlrun DISABLENETWORKPROTOCOLS=1 DISABLEAGENTSTARTUP=1 DISABLETHROTTLE=1 BLANKSAPWD=1 INSTANCENAME=WSUS REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=VEMUS /l*v %windir%WMSDE.log

changing the instance name to null, mssqlserver, nothing (as in blank) but none are working.

what am i doing wrong, and do i ever need this patch since this isn't a SharePoint or WSUS server?

thanks,

You don't need it on a full bore SQL server.  That is for "SQL lite", as it were.  The WSUS server should not have detected it as needed on that machine.  I would suggest declining that update for that server and moving on.
