    Did you login into the box as Domain Admin? Are you installing hotfix from active node or from network folder? Was other nodes patched earlier or just before this?

    If this is windows 2008 always run program rightclick and runs as administrator don't double click even though you logged in as administrator.

    Let's start with user account being used. Make sure it has adequate permissions for the install files folder.

    Next, where is the media you are using for the installation? Is the Media from a download or is in on DVD?
