The self-extracting zip file is part of a multidisk zip file

I require the hotfix Cumulative update package 4 for SQL Server 2008 documented under KB963036.

I sent in a request for the hotfix, Microsoft emailed me the download link. I retreived the file 374964_intl_x64_zip.

When I run it and attempt to extract the archive I get the following message.

"The self-extracting zip file is part of a multidisk zip file. Please insert the last disk of the set."

I am given no option other then to press OK. When I press OK three times I get the following error:

"An error occured while unzipping. One or more files were not succesfully unzipped. The error code is 110."

I believe there may be something wrong with the hotfix. I contacted Microsoft using the appropriate Security Essentials portal for hotfix related problems.

I will update this post when I hear back from Microsoft with the solution.


I redownloaded the hotfix and it now works!
