Hello Fellow Bleepers :hello:

I am running a Lenovo Thinkpad SL510, 4GB RAM, Windows 7 Pro as well as Office 2010 Professional and Business Contact Manager installed.

A few weeks ago a go an optional update (through Windows Update) to install SQL Server 2008 SP2 (KB2285068).
I went through the thing and after downloading and "Preparing to Install..." showed up, it failed the update.

The error code was: 84C40007. It did not offer me a link to this specific error code and mentioned it was caused by an unknown error.
I further examined the Event logs and it showed the failed update with a different error code: 0x80070643.

I tried the following and NONE of these worked:

1) Rebooted the computer and tried again. NO DICE
2) Clean boot (msconfig, disable all services non-microsoft, disable startup items). NO WAY!
3) Followed a suggestion from here: but I already have .NET Framework 4.0 Client installed.

Each time, the same error codes appear. It's only for this update.

If you google the issue, many others are also experiencing the same problem.
Perhaps a bug in the installer?

Any suggestions? :P

You could try this if you haven't done so already.

Looks like I found the solution. :clapping:

http://msdnrss.thecoderblogs.com/2010/12/03/error-0x84c40007-sql-server-2008-service-pack-2-installation-fails-on-a-computer-with-microsoft-net-framework-4-client-profile-already-installed/

Just wondering if there is a need for .NET Framework 4.0 I think this came through a previous Windows Update. By habit, I installed it since I have the other .NET Frameworks.
Should I unintall .NET 4 Client Profile or proceed with the Full install of .NET Framework 4?

Any opinions? :santa:

Unless there is a specific program that requires MS.NET...there is no reason to install any version.

I have a system with 4.0 installed, it works fine. This system has no version of MS.NET and it works fine.

Once it is installed, all security updates pertaining to it should be installed immediately.

Thanks for those who tried to offer assistance. :thumbup2:

I ended up removing .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile using this Removal Tool

I then proceeded with the SQL update and it installed without a hitch. :thumbsup:
