Microsoft SQL Server update problem

leave a comment

Q. I am unable to install the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 update KB970892 on windows Vista. What should I do?

A. You’ll need to edit your registry for this one so, as ever, back everything up first. If you’re not sure what you’re doing, seek professional technical help first!

  1. In the ‘Run’ box, type in ‘regedit’ (or navigate to C:\Windows\regedit.exe)
  2. Navigate to ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft
    SQL Server\MSSQL.1\Setup\’
  3. Right-click on ‘Resume’ in the right-hand column and select ‘Modify’
  4. Change the ‘value data’ from 1 to 0 then click ‘OK’
  5. Re-boot and then re-install the update
