Bitlocker Drive Preparation Tool won't install on Windows Server 2008 x64 STD


  • Folks,
    I'm setting up Bitlocker encryption on Windows Server 2008 x64 STD.
    When trying to install the Bitlocker Drive Preparation Tool (Windows6.0-KB933246-x64.msu), I get "The update does not apply to your system" error.
    The server in question lives on the single partition, has only the "Hyper-V" role, has "Bitlocker Drive Encryption", "Windows Powershell" and ".Net Framework 3.0" features installed.
    Management is done via RDP.
    Is Server 2008 x64 not supported platform to install that tool? Or am I missing something?
    Thank you in advance,

    Sergey Grigorian

  • I'll reply to myself: got an answer through the Technet Online Concierge Chat.
    The Bitlocker Drive Preparation Tool does not work with Windows Server 2008 x64, at least at the moment.
