I'm having a real headache trying to get SBS 2008 patch rollup 6 installed. It returns the following error
"The patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer patch package"
I have tried downloading through different routers (our UTM router drops data it considers a threat).
The download is a cab file containing one msp file. (SBS2008-KB2729101-X64-ENU
.msp). Running the msp file gives the attached error.
I can also extract the msp file, but there is nothing in there I can run.
I have tried running from an elevated command prompt, and using runas (gives an "ensure this is a valid win32 application message).
Also, for info, the initial run flagged a message that it couldn't find sbs.msi. I had to point it in the direction of the install dvd.
Was thinking of checking checksums on the files but MS don't seem to publish this information.
I can find a lot of information on the error on the web, but mostly surrounding ms office and acrobat. I cant find anything conclusive for a fix though.
Any ideas how I give this server a kick?
