    Does it apply to Windows Server 2008×64 Standart SP1 ? I couldn't install any of available versions on it.

  2. Will it work on Windows Server 2008 Standart x64 SP1? I wasn't able to install any of available versions on it.

  3. JonCole says:

    The KB article (…/2504602) seems to imply that SP2 is required.  I will check with some folks and get back with you.

  4. JonCole says:

    I was able to confirm that SP2 is required.  If you have further questions, the site has information about the Support Lifecycle for Microsoft products

    Even installing this hotfix the problem is still occurring. Have any ideia?

    Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise SP1

    Sakamoto,  Have you been able to identify the root cause of the problem as described in my original post?   It is possible that there is some other issue occuring that is manifesting itself in a similar manner.

    I have .Net 3.5 SP1 installed on the victim machine. I am trying to apply the patch and it gives an error "KB2504602 does not apply, or is blocked by another condition on your computer"…. This means .Net 4.0 is required for this patch.

    I have downloaded "NDP40-KB2504602-x86.exe" as I have windows xp machine & windows server 2003 machine.

    Do you have any idea about that?
