critical update from Windows Update continuously wants to update

    I've installed the same critical update 5 times, and Windows update still
    wants to update my server with the same update. It's "Critical Update for
    SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (Windows) on Windows Server 2003 (KB829358)".
    The history on the Windows Update website says that each attempt was
    successful. However, the Add and Remove Programs window does not have the
    update listed.

    Does anyone know what causes this? More importantly, what is the solution?

  2. Have you run the monitoring wizard? This seems to be the trick that
    makes that patch finally install...this also tells me you don't have SBS
    2003 sp1 installed... you should do that as well.

    it's a "Undocumented Feature"

    You have to Manual Install that update sometimes (I've had to do it on about
    4 servers I think)
    Here are the Instructions.

    And Here is where to download it from.

    Run and install it and you should be good to go...

  4. I didn't know that Monitoring wizard thing fixed it,
    but it does sound like your server needs patches
    (Since I don't remember seeing this error for 9months or so)

    Please make sure you are update on SP1 and Exchange SP2
