    I have tried to install this update at least ten times now it will never

    I even used system restore to warp back and tried to install it again with
    no luck even after installing all the other current updates. I have 11.3GBs
    free on my stem drive and the update is 55.7MBs. Why does this update not
    install. I have 55.0GBs free on my second drive.

    Could someone help me please it gives the error codes
    WindowsUpdate_00006D9E WindowsUpdate_dt000
    after it cannot install the update but I cannot find any information on the
    update errors on Microsofts Website.

    Plese Help???

  2. (cross-post addded to SQL Setup)

    Try converting your hex code to decimal and then do a search with that.
    In fact, you may find that with SQL Server installed it might even tell you
    what it means. E.g. try the following two commands in a cmd window:

    <cmd_output OS="XPsp3">
    E:\>set /a c = 0x6D9E
    E:\>net helpmsg %c%

    Does that command: net helpmsg 28062
    show you anything interesting?

    Otherwise try a web search...

    Here's an answer to a similar question regarding an older service pack

    (Microsoft Search for
    28062 SQL (MSFT OR MVP)
    - second of 5 hits

    BTW once your symptoms are independent of the update distribution
    mechanism, you are more likely to find help for problems with an install
    of an update from a newsgroup or forum which specializes in the product
    being updated. Cross-posting to an SQL NG for convenience.

    Good luck

    How do you find or where do you find the cmd windows screen? How do you
    convert the hex code & where do you find it?

  4. Start->Programs->Accessories

    Or Start->Run and enter cmd.
    It seems that Robert's post showed you just that. But 28062 does not
    seem to be a code that NET HELPMSG translates, so that was a blind
    route anyway.

    At which point does the installation of the Service Pack fail?

    Do you have a file
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\LOG\Hotfix\HotFix.log"
    on your system? In such case, can you attach it?

    Alex396, I am having the same problem. I have tried to understand what the
    techies have given as answers to no avail.

    Have you fixed this problem with your update and, if so, how.

    To the others out there who know the answer, please remember that not all of
    us are programmers or computer techs. So, if you have an answer, please
    provide it clearly and concisely. An explanation of what each step does and
    how to revert back to my normal operating status once the problem is solved
    would be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    For me the solution was simple. I had the dir where SQL Server Express was
    installed 'compressed' and that caused the error. Just make it uncompressed
    and the update installs.
