Posted on 2011-10-04
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have MSSQLSERVER 2008 R2 (RTM) - 10.50.1617.0 (X64) Enterprise Edition
on Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition.

With the release of SP1, I requested for the hotfixes but getting the following error message during my updates.

Error Message:
The version of SQL Server instance MSSQLSERVE does not match the version expected by the SQL SErver update.  The installed SQL Server product version is 10.50.1600.1, and the expected SQL Server version is 10.51.2500.0.

With this error, I'm unable to proceed with the updates.

Please how do correct this?
