Whenever I try to run the windows server 2003 sp2 update on sp1 it keeps complaining of inability to install the psxss.exe file(setup cannot copy the file psxss.exe) , but the file is there in the folder. Any help pls?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This may cause if the following registry entry error…..
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ProgramFilesDir

Now try the below:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion and on right side the value is “ProgramFilesDir”, just type “REG_SZ” (without quotes)
Double click this value and set the data as c:\program files (if it is loaded in C drive)
Remember, before doing, must take the necessary backup of ur data and registry !

OR there is a better way to download SP2 and install it manually.
