Hello everyone i am new to these forums and partially new to SQL server.
Question: I am trying to install KB956717 on a windows xp embedded box. This system already has sql and windows installer 4.5 installed on the box and everything is working fine. This KB Hotfix helps us with reporting services issue that we encountered. The problem i am having is that when i go to install this KB hotfix it starts by unpacking all the files to a random location. Then when it is doing the MSItiming packages it states that a resource could not be found and asks for a sql_common_core.msi file. Well i located where it is but its not an MSI file it is a MSP file. I can not get the kb hot fix to complete the upgrade of my sql server instance. If you need more information i can provide this.
I have also tried unpacking the kb hotfix using the /X command and then running setup but i can not seem to determine which file to start manually.
The exact error is:
the feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable
Then it states its looking for SQL_COMMON_CORE.msi. It appears the path its looking for it is in C:\xxxxxxx however it extracted to d:\xxxxxxxx.
Thanks in advance
