After installing MOSS 2007 Enterprise edition (64 bits), we had to install SP1 and that went well, afterwards we installed the Portuguese Language Pack and runned the Configuration wizard . . . it was sucessfull. Because we need a post SP1 hotfix (KB95027), we had to install it and afterwards run the configuration wizard again . . . it failed!
the error was:
“The B2B upgrader timer job failed . . .”
“. . . An exception of type Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.PostSetupConfigurationTaskException was thrown. Additional exception information: Failed to upgrade SharePoint Products and Technologies.
Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.PostSetupConfigurationTaskException: Exception of type ‘Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.PostSetupConfigurationTaskException’ was thrown.
After some chedcking we came across an support article that let us realize that the problem was the ASP.NET version in WIndows 2003 Server, it seems that in a 64 bit environment it is possible to have the ASP.NET 32 bit, and therefore the 64 bit versions of SP1 and Hotfixes fail.
