I recently installed Win 7 x64 on my machine. I have Visual Studio 2005 Standard, and need to install the KB954961 update for SQL 2008 support, so I can connect to the remote SQL Server within VS. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=E1109AEF-1AA2-408D-AA0F-9DF094F993BF&displaylang=en When I try to run the update, I get this message:The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the Windows Installer service because the program to be upgraded may be missing or the upgrade patch may update a different version of the program. Verify that the program to be upgraded exists on your computer and that you have the correct upgrade patch. I have verified that VS has SP 1 installed, and have even tried reinstalling it. I am wondering if the problem could be that I'm on Windows 7 64bit? Has anyone had this issue?
