    This is the beta of Power Pack 1 and Power Pack 2 will not install with this version. Please uninstall this version and then run windows update until you have 6.0.1800.0 which is the RTW version of Power Pack 1. Once this version is installed, you should be able to pull down Power Pack 2 from WU.

    You will have to RDP into your server and uninstall the beta using ADD/REMOVE programs and check the "show updates" box.

    It is if you are in the USA.  What are the current component numbers in the Console?  (Settings button, Resources tab)

  • Thanks Lara,

    I didn't realize I hadn't updated the PP1 yet.
