I have the following MS  SQL server with the following info

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (RTM) - 10.50.1600.1 (X64)   Apr  2 2010 15:48:46   Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation  Standard Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.1 <X64> (Build 7601: Service Pack 1) (Hypervisor)

I downloaded the service pack 4 from


When I installed it, I got the error

There are no SQL Server instances or shared features that can be updated on this computer

Any thing wrong with my service pack? I think I need to update to service pack 3, correct?
