How can I install SQL Server 2005 SP3 KB955706 (SQLServer2005SP3-KB955706-x64-ESN.exe) silently?

Is there an unattended file or config xml maybe where I could setup or chose the following setup:



I already tried the hotfix.exe that could be extracted from the exe source but the silent parameter provided to it cannot do the required selection.


Please help thanks!

  • But can you not run the complete hotfix.exe silent? it should only update that what is needed/installed.

Type: SQLServer2005SP3-KB955706-x64-ESN.exe /? and it should give you the parameters needed.

For instance, I would run it as: SQLServer2005SP3-KB955706-x64-ESN.exe /quiet /allinstances

For selecting the features, I have no idea. Worth a try checking the logs and adjust the parameters depending on the information you can find there.
