Spent a day on this one.  GROAN!

If you go to download KB 959605 for Systems Center Data Protection Manager 2007, be warned.

The x86 and X64 version have the EXACT SAME FILENAME!  The only difference is about a 2k difference in filesize (the x64 is marginally larger)

If you go to run the wrong version it will install the C++ runtime modules and then IMMEDIATELY crash.  No version of the system type (IE: X86 installed on X64) will be received.  You’ll get this error and your jaw will drop.

Cryptic huh?

If you get this error, double check on what version of the O/S you are running (and DPM) vs. what version of the service Pack you downloaded. (x86 32bit or X64 64bit) 

the file size for the x86 version is 268,747 kb

the file size for the x64 version is 270,973 kb

It’s an easy mistake to make.   Just don’t panic when it happens and you’ll be ok 🙂
