SQL Server 2012 Service Pack install fail

Problem description

Installing SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 3 update, and ran into the following problem:

The install package extracts setup files, flashes a command window, and disappears.  Nothing appears to be installed.  I tried running the package in elevated administrator mode and with the /action=Patch switch – no luck. SQL Server setup log Summary.txt contained no entries at all.

Windows Application event log showed some warnings such as the screenshot below:

NETerror

(.NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.5485 – Error ‘Invalid syntax on line 166’)

Solution

This problem was fixed by running the following command:

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\caspol.exe    

-machine   -reset

If you’re using 64-bit framework, run the following command:

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\caspol.exe  

-machine -reset

 

No system reboot was required in my case.
