Failure To Install Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition SP2 & SP3 In Windows 7.
Posted on 2010-09-08
Hello. I have an issue I hope you can answer.
Hello. Can not install a Windows Update (Fails!): Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition
Service Pack 2 (KB921896) or Service Pack 3 (KB955706) Installation status: Failed Error
details: Code 6D or 41D randomly given for either service pack. If I attempt to try to install
and then reboot/restart the system and attempt again to install, I will get one or the other
Error Details Code (either Code 6D or Code 41D).
I have tried on several occasions to fix this issue and have had an unsuccessful installation
on my Windows 7 Professional in each instance. I do not know what is causing the install
failure or even how to fix this issue.
I have tried downloading the 32-Bit version (x86) of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express
Edition Service Pack 3 (KB955706) as an EXE file form Microsoft website and installing it
separately in Safe Mode to see if I could get this service pack 3 installed. Unfortunately, I
can not get it installed either in Safe Mode after a few attempts.
To add, I have installed Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate that I know has a feature called
MSSMLBIZ which relates to Microsoft SQL Express. This was installed when I installed
this software suite.
How can I successfully install both these service packs into my system? I had no issues
with Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition in Windows XP when I had installed
Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate? I remember installing SP2 & SP3 just fine on Windows XP.
Please reply with the reason (possibilites) and resolution(s) to this issue.
