Trouble Installing Cumulative Update 2 to SQL Server 2008 SP1, Hotfix KB958

By akilahm ·
I have been trying to apply CU2 to my MS SQL 08 which is SP1, version 10.0.2531.0

1) I got the hotfix (SQLServer2008-KB958186-x64.exe) from Microsoft and extract it to my C: drive.

2) I double click to open SQLServer2008-KB958186-x64.exe and it does extracts a folder to my e drive.

3) Program entitled "Install a SQL Server Patch" opens up.

4) I click oK

5) I accept the license terms

6) On the select features page, I can't select/unselect any features, so I click ok.

7) Then I get a error window that tells me to check to see what are the validation error.

The error I get is "There are no SQL Server instances of shared features that can be updated on this computer.".

I'm stuck. WHat do I do now?

Just to make things more interesting, when I ran
SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('productversion'), SERVERPROPERTY ('productlevel'), SERVERPROPERTY ('edition')
SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('productversion'), SERVERPROPERTY ('productlevel'), SERVERPROPERTY ('edition')

I got the following results:
10.0.2531.0 SP1 Standard Edition (64-bit)

But when I opened C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log\Summary.txt file, the version for the Database Engine Services is 10.1.2531.0.

A SQL Server patch with a higher version has already been installed on SQL Server instance <no instance name>, so the current SQL Server patch cannot be applied. The version of the SQL Server patch that is already installed is: 10.1.2531.0 with a KBKB968369 and the current SQL Server patch is: 10.0.1828.0 with a KBKB977444.
