Error in Configuration Wizard after installing KB95027(post-SP1 hotfix)

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.
at Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.UpgradeTask.Run()
at Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.TaskThread.ExecuteTask()

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.

The resolution can be found
