  • Trouble Installing adminpak.msi

    Cannot install adminpak.msi

    I have a full copy of Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition.

    I installed Service Pack 1 correctly.

    I can use Windows Update

    When I go to install the adminpak.msi, which I downloaded from Microsoft's website, I receive this error message:

    "Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack can only be installed on Windows XP Professional with QFE Q329357 applied, on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 1 or later, or on computers running Windows Server 2003 operating systems."


    What should I do??

    Have you tried using the adminpak.msi that comes on the Windows Server 2003 cd (cddrive:\i386\adminpak.msi)?

      Yes, I tried that.

      Last night, I actually read that this is a known issue without a real solution.

      Someone suggested using some tools like mciuu/msizap which will apparently clean up registry installation files....

      Sounds kind of scary.

        SYMPTOMS
        If you do not uninstall the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 version of Administration Tools Pack (AdminPak.msi) before you upgrade to Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 (SP1), AdminPak.msi is not uninstalled after you upgrade. If you try use Add or Remove Programs or run AdminPak.msi to uninstall AdminPak.msi, you receive the following error messages:

        Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack can only be installed on Windows XP Professional with QFE Q329357 applied, on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 1 or later, or on computers running Windows Server 2003 operating systems.
