    SQL Server 2005 sp3 (KB955706)

    I ran windows update, one of the updates was the SQL Server 2005 sp3
    (KB955706) and it failed. I can't start the SQL Server process now. It
    gives me the helpful hint of trying to install the update again, but doesn't
    tell me how to do that, since it no longer shows up in the list. Do I need
    to hunt down the stand alone sp3? Uninstall SQL Server 2005 and start over?

    Hi Charles,

    In my case, the install failed due to KB954459 (MS08-069) for XML Core Services 6.0: November 11, 2008. In Add/Remove Programs, if you see MSXML 6.0 Service Pack 2 (KB954459) or some such thing, remove it. If that operation fails, as it did for me, use the Microsoft Windows Installer CleanUp Utility ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301 ) to remove it.

    Run Windows Update again and, if successful, you will see in Add/Remove Programs that MSXML 6.0 Parser (KB933579) has been installed as part of the SQL Server 2005 EE SP3 update. If the update fails, go to Microsoft Downloads to download the SP3 update, which will install the MSXML 6.0 Parser when you run the downloaded file.

    If none of the above works for you, it appears you aare down to uninstall and start over. :-(
