Windows Internal Database
I'm trying to install WSUS on 2008 R2, however it appears to fail when trying to install the Windows Internal Database.
Here's the info I'm given:
The problem I believe is on the 5th line from the bottom:
2011-10-01 20:39:54 Success MWUSSetup Detected that setup was launched through Server Manager

2011-10-01 20:40:17 Error MWUSSetup CSetupDriver::LaunchSetup: Setup failed (Error 0x80070643: Fatal error during installation.)
Any ideas how to fix this? Many thanks.

Have you tried downloading it rather than adding it as a role i find lea proxy makes add role fail

If I download WSUS 3 SP2 x64 and run it manually, it fails at exactly the same point - just as when I add it from the Server Manager. WSUS is failing because the Windows Internal Database (WID) cannot be installed.
WID is there though, as it's located in: C:\Windows\SysMsiCache\WSSEE however Microsoft don't allow you to add it manually. It's supposed to get installed when it's needed. I suspect it's something registry related, because if I add another component which also needs the WID - such as the Windows System Resource Manager (under Features), this also fails.

Have you tried installing SP1 for 2008 R2 (if it isn't already)?

Yes it's already installed. It was installed already integrated 'as new' during the summer. All my newly installed servers are running 2008 R2 with SP1.
I downloaded it directly from Microsoft and isn't/wasn't a DVD I created.

I finally resolved this issue by migrating FSMO roles and other critical domain information, formatted the server, installed as new and migrated everything back.
All is now well and the Windows Internal Database and WSUS works perfectly. I can only assume that there was something corrupt or missing in the registry.
