An error occurred while running detection. Cannot install .exe files (SP1, or any other KB) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm having a strange problem, on the server running Central Admin(Server 1), I cannot install any .exe files, they all go straigh to "An error occurred while running detection" after I accept the license agreements.

    SharePoint is in RTM version 14.0.4763.1000. Only on the server NOT running Central Admin(Server 2), a patch is installed (Microsoft Update for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 (KB2560890) 14.0.6106.5009) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2560890 The PatchStatus page shows this update as Missing/Requred on Server 1.

    I can install .exe files on Server 2. (I tried with SP1 but canceled).

    I've tried to run different .exe files, run as administrator, logged in as different users. (The account to the guy who had this server before me and got DB access, farm admin, SPFarmAdmin, and my personal farm admin account) None seems to work.

    PSConfig will not run, because of the missing KB on Server 1.

    I'm kind of stuck, and none of the top google/technet hits provided any solution. Hope anyone here got some usefull tips! Thank you!

  • I get access denied when attempting to view that image.  Can you upload it to http://imgur.com or SkyDrive (and mark it public)?

  • Okay cool, can you look in %tmp%?  There should be MSI logs in there that may give better feedback.

  • Textfiles with names opatchinstall is beeing created there.

    There exist no msi logfiles. I've checked Event Log, nothing about the install there, but there is only 5GB free space on the system disk, and a warning about it from the Health Analyzer so I've contacted the hosting provider to increase it.

    The same error shows when I try to install KB's related to the KB that is missing from the server.

  • To avoid the validation check, you must type on command line the next 

    package.exe PACKAGE.BYPASS.DETECTION.CHECK=1

    with this you'll jump te validation.

    Never do this. You'll put yourself in an unsupported state.
