Hi, I've been trying to install exchange 2010 rollup 8, but keep getting errors and doesn't install.
I've attached a rollup.log zip file.

report event 1023 in event viewer

Product: Microsoft Exchange Server - Update 'Update Rollup 8 for Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (KB2787763) 14.1.438.0' could not be installed. Error code 1603. Additional information is available in the log file c:\Rollup.log.

also, I'm running this in an small business 2011 setup that was finished from a migration from sbs 2003 2 weeks ago.

Hope you manually copied the RU 8 and trying to install ?
Is the Installer service running ?
Why arent you simply planning for SP install ?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Though you are an administrator, Run the setup file with Run as Admin option...

Also Check whether your server is installed with Windows Framework 3.0 if yes. uninstall it and try the update again..

uninstalling windows framework 3 worked a treat.
I've installed sp1 rollup 8 and now installing sp2, it's already passed the test procedure. Looks like RU8 was required.

many thanks for the advice.

is there a known issue with framework 3 ?
Is it a good idea to leave it off for the moment ?
