SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 3 (KB3045316) Will Not Install

Hello:

I have a 64-Bit Windows 7 Professional laptop with SQL Server 2008 R2 on it.  Today, I tried to install SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 3 (KB3045316).  It failed, for both of my instances.

I conduct SQL updates on this laptop, regularly, and this is the first time that this has happened.  Also, I never have issues with SQL or its apps on my laptop.

Attached is the summary log file, as well as the detail log files for the two instances.

Can someone please help me determine how to successfully get this service pack installed?

Thank you!

John

KB3045316 is NOT he SP3. That's a security patch to be installed AFTER SP3.

SQL Server 2008R2 SP3 is KB2979597 and you can download it from here.

Hi Vitor:

Thank you!  It's strange that Windows Update would try to install that security patch.  I would have thought that that "mechanism" would have been smart enough to know that I might not have service pack 3 on.

Again, that's very strange.

Let me try putting both on, then, and I'll let you know.

Yes, I never saw Windows Update failing with hotfixes. It might being confused for something else.

Hi Vitor:

Actually, per the attachment, my SQL instance actually is on service pack 3 already.

So, is there some other way of getting KB3045316 installed, so that Windows Update doesn't prompt me for this?

Windows Update hasn't prompted me, since I entered this case.  But, every month, our company's laptops including mine are prompted to run Windows updates.  I just want to make sure that Windows does not error on this, again.

Thank you!

So, there is still an issue.

Thank you!

Well, I just want to know if there's a way of my getting this service pack installed successfully, prior to the next  week or two, when my company has our laptops conduct Windows Updates.

You told that SP3 it's already installed:
"Actually, per the attachment, my SQL instance actually is on service pack 3 already."

How often is your Windows Update checking for new updates?
You can also try to install it manually.

Hi Vitor:

The answers to your most recent questions, are below:

How often is your Windows Update checking for new updates?  Once a month.
You can also try to install it manually.  Actually, I reviewed online the version of SQL that this patch references.  When I run "select @@version" in SQL Management Studio for SQL Server 2008 R2, it shows that I'm already on this version.

I simply want to make sure that the next time Windows Updates runs on my laptop at my company, which may be as soon as later this week, the Windows Updates service doesn't given me an erroneous message saying that it could not install this patch.

Thanks!

I would say that's the expected behavior but for you be sure of that you'll need to wait for the next update period.

Great to know.
That should be the expected behavior so everything ran fine.
