This article describes an issue that occurs after you install Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) out of band (OOB) in Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1). A hotfix is available to resolve this issue. The hotfix has a prerequisite.

Symptoms

This issue only occurs if you first install AD LDS OOB on a computer that is running Windows 7 RTM and then install Service Pack 1 for Windows 7. In this situation, when you try to install update 2853587, the update cannot be applied, and you receive the error message.

Cause

This issue occurs because update 2853587 is parented on the RTM version of the Microsoft-Windows-DirectoryServices-ADAM-Package-Client package that only presents when AD LDS OOB is installed. However, after SP1 is applied, the version of the package is increased. Therefore, update 2853587 cannot be applied.

Resolution

To resolve this issue, we have released a hotfix for Windows 7. Even though this issue has only been observed in Windows 7, the hotfix also applies to Windows Server 2008 R2.

Windows 7 file information and notes

Important Windows 7 hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 R2 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, hotfixes on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.

  • The files that apply to a specific product, milestone (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table:

    Version

    Product

    Milestone

    Service branch

    6.1.760 1.18xxx

    Windows 7

    SP1

    GDR

    6.1.760 1.22xxx

    Windows 7

    SP1

    LDR

  • GDR service branches contain only those fixes that are widely released to address widespread, critical issues. LDR service branches contain hotfixes in addition to widely released fixes.

  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information" section. MUM, MANIFEST, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are very important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
