  • For some reason a reboot of the server cured the issue? Looks like the installer wasn't "smart" enough to "know" that a reboot was required and just hung. Prior to the reboot, no CAB file existed. After successful install a CAB file does exist. Along with all of the files documented in this link:

    Not sure if you need to see a successful set of files?

    The moral of this story; if the SQLServer2014-KB3204388-x64 hangs - reboot your server ? YMMV
