The issue: I cannot select MSSQLSERVER from the feature list I want to update as part of the SQL Server 2005 x64 Service Pack 4 installation process.

Please note exe file is being raised from C:\ with full administrador privilegies.

enter image description here

Server details: Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard x64 bits
SQL Server details: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - 9.00.5294.00 (X64) (Build 7601: Service Pack 1)
Service Package Details: SQLServer2005SP4-KB2463332-x64-ENU.exe

I have spent the last hour trying to identify where the issue is or similar experiencies over internet but I didn't get it until now. Any comments will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

  • so, you put a checkmark next to "MSSQLSERVER" and what happens?

You are running SQL Server build 9.00.5294.00 that is more current than SP4 which is 9.00.5000. Your server has already been updated. (http://sqlserverbuilds.blogspot.com/) (Build 7601: Service Pack 1) is the version of the operating system.
