Fixing 84b40000 error on SQL Server 2008 updates (like KB2977321 and KB2285068) via: Microsoft Community

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/07/14

When installing SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 3 related updates, some don’t like compressed directories (even if the database files themselves are uncompressed).

I found this holds at least for KB2977321 and KB2285068.

For x86 systems, ensure these directories are not compressed:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition

For x64 systems, ensure these directories are not compressed:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server
C:\Program Files x86\Microsoft SQL Server
C:\Program Files x86\Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition
