KB955706 failed to install.

Applies to: SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition.


Error Message.

We were installing SP3 on a SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition instance, and we got the following error message while installing the Database Services:


A recently applied update, KB955706, failed to install.




There was a previous attempt to install SP3 on that instance, without completing the whole process.  During that first attempt SP3 Setup created a database named "Temp_MS_AgentSigningCertificate_database, and now during the last attempt to install SP3, the setup program is unable to create that database because it already exists.



Drop that database and run SP3 Setup again.
