Problem with "Error 0xD59 when trying to install the Microsoft SQL Server Express edition Service Pack 3 (KB955706)"

    Question

  • Hi Folks,

    I've been jumping from site to site trying to find a solution for this and still no luck.  I have tried this update many times but it always fails.  I have the results of the installation log here if it helps.  I am on HP hardware using XP.  Any help is most appreciated.  Thanks for reading!
