Storefront 7.15 CU5 upgrade to CU6 fails with error 1603


Joost Sannen

Question

Hi,

 

We have this fresh install a few months back of Storefront 7.15 LTSR CU5. Today I want to update to CU6 but it keeps failing with this error. Does anyone have an idea how to solve this?

 

Best regards, Joost

 

Calling custom action Citrix.DeliveryServices.InstallControllerCustomAction!Citrix.DeliveryServices.InstallControllerCustomAction.CustomActions.SnapshotConfiguration
Begin SnapshotConfiguration
 Creating version snapshot for version '3.12.5000.134'.

 Loading backup configuration from: 'C:\ProgramData\Citrix\Storefront Install\3.12.5000.134'
 Incomplete snapshot exists for version '3.12.5000.134' so deleting.
 No snapshot exists for version '3.12.5000.134', create one now.

I had that problem, going from 7.6 to 7.15 CU3.

Solved it going from 7.6 to 7.15 and then to CU3.

 

Maybe article CTX206014 helps you out.

 

Thanks wormindb. According to the KB I was able to install Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Packages (x64 and x86). .NET 4.5.2 coul;d not be installed due to same or later version already present. CU6 still could not be installed with the same error. 

 

It's a fallback environment so no rush. I'll log a case today.
