Installation of SQL server 2005 SP1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have the Windows server 2003 R2 Service PAck 2 , we got updated to this version after i installed automatic updates today,and i am having problems with setting up maintenance plan in SQL server 2005 (9.0.1399)

    Hence i am trying to install Sql server 2005 SP1, but the read me file says that this installation is compatible only with Windows server 2003 SP1

    Also, i received this error when i tried to install SQL server 2005 SP1 yesterday

    "The image file hotfix.exe is valid, but is for a machine type other than the current machine"

    I am confused, Can someone help me out in this regard?

    Thanks in advance

    The second part of the post (valid for another type of machine) typically refers to an error you see when you try to install an X64 (64-bit) service pack on an X86 machine (32-bit).  For that one, I'd just suggest to double check that you have the corrent installation package for your machine.
