    I've seen this happen when you have the 32 bit CU and try to apply it to a x64 server. If you d/l the hotfix from a 32 bit OS then you will be servers the 32 bit CU without asking which you want. Doh!

    @AaronBertrand Interesting. We don't normally do CUs, but CU9 had a lot of interest from the developers. I just tried CU8 and have the same issue on multiple instances. So something is definitely wrong with our installs.

    @Ismail must be; worked fine here on many instances. Anyway CU #10 should be out in the next ~10 days or so.

    I have to be doing something wrong. So far on two test instances CU9 has only installed for Shared Features and not upgraded the SQL Service version. I remain at 11.0.3000
