Windows 2012 R2 KB2883200 / KB2919355

In case you ever get round to trying to install vNext (or SQL2016SP1) on a Windows 2012R2 server, you may encounter some problems with missing updates. At least, I did, while following these steps:

  • Create new Windows 2012 R2 VM
  • Apply all updates
  • Apply all updates
  • Wonder why KB2883200 isn’t installing

Grovelling around in MS’s website, you’ll find a link that says that KB2883200 has been superceded by KB2919355 , which is hidden from Windows Update by default. WHY?

So you think “I’ll just install it manually”. Which also fails.

You first need to install KB2919442 .

This then causes KB2919355 to appear in Windows Updates. (I’m fairly sure I saw it and KB2883200 at the same time, but I’ve not been able to replicate that; if this one does appear, then don’t bother with it.)

Confused? You will be. Particularly when you realise that 2919355 < 2919442, implying that this is a fix to fix a cockup that was intended to fix another cockup. Or something like that.

I also liked / enjoyed the way that the link under “this update fixes some issues” just takes you to the Microsoft Support homepage , rather than anything more useful. Helpful.

So, install that update, reboot, re-run windows updates. Oh look. Another 184 updates to install. Deep joy.

I should feel the need to rant, but this happened a couple of months ago, and I’ve only just got round to writing a quick blogpost about it. And even then, I cheated – this is just a regurgitation of an email to a colleague…
