Update to SQL Server keeps coming back
SQL Server Express 2005, installed on Win7 Ultimate.
All updates to Win7 installed.
Win Update threw up a SQL update KB2463332 last week. Box said I had installed it in January, but I reapplied it. Process said Successfully Completed.
Rebooted. Up came the update again. Installed again, successfully.
I've downloaded the SP4 patch file and applied it manually - successfully.
It refuses to log itself as installed in Win Update.
Searched the web. Changed one registry key. Added another. Every time results in the same - installed successfully, but update says it needs to be done after reboot.
So much for Windows 7 being better, faster, etc.
I've hidden the update for now, but it bugs me that I can't figure out what the dickens is wrong.
Any thoughts ???

Your issue doesn't have much to do with Win7 - the patch you are trying to install is a part of SP4 of SQL Server 2005, so has probably already been installed if you have SP4. There are several reports of issues with that patch - take a look at this thread on the Microsoft social site. If you check the Updates log file you will probably see some sort of buried error message.Wendell
