Upgrading Exchange 2013 to SP1 failed

I'm trying to upgrade my Exchange 2013 CU3 to SP1. I'm upgrading thru the command line interface using the guide from http://www.peters.com/Blogs/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=85 
However I encounter the following error during the last stage of installation. Please see attached picture. In the ExchangeSetup.log file, it shows

Using Windows Explorer, I went to 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\bin\Setup\ServerRoles\UnifiedMessaging\MSSpeech_SR_TELE.ca-ES.msi' and I don't find this path there. I probably do not have UnifiedMessaging installed. Can I know how do I continue?

Hi totallypatrick,

Instead of using PowerShell do it from a command line with Elevated Privileges.
If it fails try to download again the SP and issue again the setup.exe from the command line instead of the PowerShell.


Let us know.

manually creating the folder and copying language pack files seems to have resolved the issue.

under exchange logs it says c:\program files\......msi does not exist.  Does it look for that file? That path does not exist if i navigate to it from windows explorer. Does upgrading using cmd or gui makes a diff?

The first thing to always try when a setup like this fails is to download the update file again fresh.
Why install SP1? It is very out of date - download CU7 or CU8 instead (SP1 is effectively CU4). Otherwise you will simply need to upgrade again.

But do you have any kind of Unify Communications installed?

If not the problem could be related with some services running or the organization not prepared to receive the SP1, doing it from the cmd you will be sure that these services will be prepared or stop and also the organization will be prepared before starting the Upgrade.


I hope it helps.

Hi simon, is it advisable to upgrade from cu3 to cu7 direct?

The syntax must be right.

.\Setup.exe /m:upgrade /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms
compared to:
Setup.exe /m:upgrade /IAcceptExchangeServerLicenseTerms

No problems with doing that. There is no need to go through the updates at all. They are all the complete product. You can install a fresh server with the CU download.
