HPC Pack 2008 Service Pack 1 – Exit Code 1642 and 1603


Trying to install HPC Pack 2008 Service Pack 1 onto Windows Server 2008 Data Center with HPC 2008 – HPC Cluster Manager client/server version 2.0.1551.0 – generate Exit Code 1642. Reason? Running x86 installer for a 64bit OS doesn’t work🙂 However, once I ran the x64 installed, I now get:

MSI (s) (40:B8) [10:45:20:335]: Product: Microsoft HPC Pack – Update ‘Service Pack 1 for HPC Pack 2008 (KB972008)’ could not be installed. Error code 1603. Additional information is available in the log file C:\Users\ADMINI~1.LAB\AppData\Local\Temp\2\HPC_PATCH.log.

Anyone know how to fix this?

  1. Looks like it’s “not supported”.

    I also tried using “Run as Administrator” and fiddling with the Compatibility mode to make it think it’s running as Server 2008, but all those paths lead to the same error.
