I'm having a strange problem, on the server running Central Admin(Server 1), I cannot install any .exe files, they all go straigh to "An error occurred while running detection" after I accept the license agreements.
SharePoint is in RTM version 14.0.4763.1000. Only on the server NOT running Central Admin(Server 2), a patch is installed (Microsoft Update for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 (KB2560890) 14.0.6106.5009) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2560890 The PatchStatus page shows this update as Missing/Requred on Server 1.
I can install .exe files on Server 2. (I tried with SP1 but canceled).
I've tried to run different .exe files, run as administrator, logged in as different users. (The account to the guy who had this server before me and got DB access, farm admin, SPFarmAdmin, and my personal farm admin account) None seems to work.
PSConfig will not run, because of the missing KB on Server 1.
I'm kind of stuck, and none of the top google hits provided any usefull tips. Hope anyone here got some usefull tips! Thank you!
