    Hi,

    Update services has happily downloaded this (I have SSIS & SSMS tools
    installed on the server so I guess that's why it wants to install it.) but
    it has failed every time I have tried to install it. I have tried it in
    normal use, during shutdown and immediately after a clean reboot and I get
    this error every time.

    Update Name: Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1
    Update Type: Service Packs
    Error Date: 31/01/2007 11:25:45
    Error Description: Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the
    following update with error 0x80070643: Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1.

    Anyone got a solution to this one?

    TIA
    Nigel Ainscoe

    I just fixed this problem. read KB Article 925336. If its on your SBS Server
    you have to change where it say to go to the local Security policy and
    instead go to Group policy management. Create a new policy called Software
    Restriction policies and add it under there. This allowed me to install the
    update.

    Thank You. Don't forget to go into the policy after you install the update
    and change it back like the KB says.
