As repeatedly asked and apparently still confusing the IT folks, I'll post some information's and what to consider how, during and while updating WSSv3 and MOSS 2007.
You must run Setup to install new binary files for every server in your server farm. If you have multiple servers in your server farm, run Setup and the configuration wizard on the other servers now, and then return to this server and click OK to continue.
2. Run on all other servers the WSS package and the PSConfig Wizard 3. When all servers are updated, go back to the first server you started and finish the PSConfig Wizard on this Server. Watch the logs for errors. 4. Now Install the MOSS package in same manner as the WSS package and end again with the first server to finish the PSConfig Wizard.
Note: You can install the MOSS update binaries immediately followed by the WSS update binaries. After both of these have been completed PSCONFIG can be used to upgrade the farm for both service packs in one step. The reason I suggest running PSConfig for each SP is that in the event of an upgrade failure it will make troubleshooting that much easier because you only need to check for that particular patch you just installed!
To force a software update 1. Force a software update operation by opening a Command Prompt window and changing to the following directory: %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft shared\web server extensions\12\bin\ 2. Type the following command: psconfig –cmd upgrade –inplace b2b –wait –force (Syntax and description of psconfig)

Back to TOP Hth and greetings, Steve Chen, Support Engineer - EMEA GTSC
Hi Steve, installing June 2010 CU on a SharePoint 2007 (single server) I get the error "The expected version is not installed on your system". On the same farm the WSS June 2010 CU has been installed and configuration wizard has been run. Is there a way to correct my farm?
First of all, you need to install the update packages according to the language of SharePoint you installed at setup. Next to check is if you have installed additionally "language packs for SharePoint" and if they're on the SP2 level updated as well (not SP2 for SharePoint meant here!)And finally, did you have SharePoint on SP2 for MOSS and WSS patched or did you installing the June 2010 CU just on top of any other patch level at SharePoint prior SP2?This might also cause an error as we recommend to have only the CU packages according to its prior published Service packs to be installed.
Hth, greets Steve
Any idea of what version is 184.108.40.20690 ?
Your backup is from a different version of Windows SharePoint Services and canno t be restored to a server running the current version. The backup file should be restored to a server with version '220.127.116.1190' or later. any idea pls
Thanks in Advance
This seems to be a security Update placed on MOSS Server/WSSv3 - please check this Link here for more:
MS14-022: Description of the security update for SharePoint Server 2007: May 13, 2014
Microsoft_office_server_conversions_launcher_exe 12.0.6690.5000 96,976 16-Nov-2013 03:06
Microsoft_office_server_conversions_loadbalancer_exe 12.0.6690.5000 47,824 16-Nov-2013 03:06
So I'd guess, you have the Security fix installed and that's the expected patch level your restore is looking for.
Hope that helps,
Thank you very much.it's working fine.
Thanks for the post.
--> Having a MOSS Server Farm (all on one Box/single Server):
1. Install the WSS package, don't run PSConfig Wizard (simply cancel it)
Unfortunately, I didn't cancel and I let PSConfig run to completion. Now when I try to install the MOSS SP3 package, it fails right away.
What can I do now?!!!
Hi Paul, I'm sorry but this is to be investigated with MS Support. Please raise a ticket for this since this requires deeper technical tweaks to solve and cant be discussed here.
There is just one thing that I would try if applicable, run PSConfig wizard and disconnect that one server from farm if it is not the only one! Then retry to patch the remaining servers and if that works, you can add back the already patched server to the farm again, maybe that could be a workaround...
