The installation of Service Pack 3 for SQL Server 2005 Express Edition failed

Service Pack 3 for SQL Server 2005 is not currently supported for The Raiser's Edge versions 7.85 and lower.

 

Since the Raiser's Edge is not compatible with this service pack we need to hide it from the Windows automatic updates feature:

Windows Server 2003

  1. Open Control Panel
  2. Open Automatic Updates (Windows Server 2008- Open Windows Update)
  3. Click on the Windows Update Web Site link (Windows Server 2008- Click on the "Check for updates" button)
  4. Select Custom, will check for latest updates
  5. Under Microsoft SQL Server 2005, un-mark the checkbox for "Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 (KB955706)"
  6. Mark the checkbox for "Don't show this update again"
  7. Close the browser or proceed to install the other updates.

 

Windows Server 2008

  1. Open Control Panel
  2. Open Windows Update
  3. Click on the "Check for updates" button
  4. Select "View available updates" link
  5. Right click on "Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 (KB955706)" and select Hide Update
