While I’m installing Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 4 (KB2463332) on my computer I keep on getting Windows Update error 534. Does anyone have any advice on how I can fix this error? Do I need to worry about this Update? If not, how can I configure the automatic update feature to ignore this particular update?
Windows Update error when installing Microsoft SQl Server 2005?
SQL SP4 should be installed and can not be ignored. It fixes a couple of bugs that were reported for SQL 2005 Express.
The automatic install of the SQL2005 SP4 may fail if the SQL instance/database/tables are locked or in use.
Below registry key is set when you do a install
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftMicrosoft SQL ServerMSSQL.XSetup]
X is the SQL instance number (1, 2, or so)
The key makes the installer keep a track about the previous install attempts, so all further attempts are marked to be failed.
Make below changes to this key and download the appropriate patch files:
