    This update needs to be installed interactively. It failed for me when I
    used the auto-update. So I downloaded it and ran it separately. I also,
    beforehand, made sure all instance of SQL were started (mine is a dev't
    machine with several instances). Also, in the course of the install (and
    this is what breaks it in auto mode) you are asked to kill some processes --
    like Microsoft Integration services and the SQLExpress process.

    I started all SQL services, and unticked the SQL express box. Still have the
    same failure...

    I turned off both the firewall and anti-virus software and it didn't work
    for me.

    I fixed this just by getting all services running in SQL Server Configuration
    Manager before applying the update (I even didn't need to download the
    package, it worked fine just with the Automatic Update)

    Haven't solved it completely but I did manage to update all SQL Server
    instances except SQL Server Express. The downloadable patch
    (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...cc-2c4c-4190-872c-84993a7623b7&DisplayLang=en)
    lets you select which instances to upgrade and it’s more verbose during
    installation. See the log file afterwards. SQL Server Express had the status
    "upgradeable" instead of "upgraded" as all the others did. I also had to stop
    the SQL Server Express service before being able to continue.

    I finally made it!!!

    Stopped all Anti-Virus and Firewall services (Sophos in my case) and then
    -that´s the way the cookie crumbles- set the "Hilfsdienst von SQL Server für
    Active Directory" from disabled to manual and started it.

    As this a german windows copy, the english name for this service should be
    something like "SQL Server Helper Service for Active Directory".

    After starting this particular service I downloaded KB948109 from MS and ran
    the Setup interactively.

    This way round the patch could be successfully applied.

    Hope anyone can find this helpful. ;-)

    Cheers,
    Joshua

    I also have had this problem, and I tried the above fix - which did not work
    for me. In my case, the express edition is all I have installed – so
    unchecking that option made no difference. I think there is a problem with
    this fix as applied to the express edition.

    Guys,
    The problem is not with ticking checkboxes or with the patch itself. The
    problem is that not all the SQL server instances can actually start up
    because the master database and log files are compressed (by Disk cleanup).
    You usually only use one instance in a SQLExpress installation but there are
    more than one, which only gets accessed with a patch or service pack update,
    hence the reason why it fails.

    Update worked fine on my desktop (X86, XP SP3, 2GB ram).

    Fails on my laptop (X86, XP SP3, 4GB ram, almost identical software to my
    desktop). Have tried all suggestions I can find from many sites...
    * Tried to get it to work using automatic updates - always failed.
    * Reboot PC - still failed.
    * Reinstalled automatic update software and try again - still failed.
    * Checked SQL server databases not compressed.
    * Checked SQL server instances running (tried all combinations of running
    and stopped).
    * Downloaded the X86 patch and installed manually - still failed.
    * Tried disabling parts of the patch (e.g. switch of SQL Express) - still
    failed.
    * Finally gave up and disabled the update!

    Am looking again for information on the net to see if a solution has been
    posted.

    Same problem here

    Tried all the above suggestions incl som others found in other forums
    Im runnning Vista SP1 and SQL Express i have two SQL instances one for CRM
    and one for MAPS....MAPS patch ok but CRM keeps getting the update error.

    Strange thing is the update removes the "network service" from the
    SQLSErver2005MSSQLUser... group making the service unable to start. i
    manually has to add to the group after to make the sql service start.


    Would be nice with a solution soon

    I found the solution on my laptop:

    I use a number of substituted drives: T:, U:, V:, W:, X:, Y: and Z: (all
    created using the SUBST command in a command file run at login).

    The patch works perfectly if I remove all of these using several
    SUBST <drive-letter>: /d
    commands from a command window.

    What I do not understand is that the patch worked on my desktop which also
    has substituted drives: T:, X:, Y: and Z: (U:, V: and W: in this case are
    networked drives).

    The opposite here: it doesn't ask to stop anything, but each time I try to
    install the update on my development machine, I get a popup from Vista
    saying the SQL server service crashed (or ermmm, "stopped working").

    I have only one instance installed, SQL 2005 developer edition (from MSDN),
    so there's no Express to uncheck in the interactive installer either.



    Next thing I'm going to try (I can spare some time now) is detach my user
    databases and make sure I have backup copies of the mdf and ldf, uninstall,
    reinstall, get all updatees, and then re-attach my databases.

    Regardless of whether it works or not, I'll post the result somewhere in
    this thread.

    Well, that does not explain why sql server won't get patched. I don't have a
    master database on my pc. I only have the client tools. The patch indicates
    it could not perform the update on one of my pc's but worked fine on another
    pc.
