Service pack 3 not updating
After i installed SP1 After I finished my work After steps applied – or in your case the “Windows Activation” INFO may not appear,but that’s fine.like this If SP1 installed already,apply the whole steps. First we need to Uninstall Windows Activation Technologies (WAT KB971033) it has to be removed before we proceed. After you reboot repeat step 1 to check whether the (KB971033) patch is properly removed.Microsoft ships a GDR in the event of the discovery of an issue that Microsoft believes should be fixed through a GDR.
To get the sample pack, download a latest ZIP of the source.
If such discoveries were made for SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 3, then yes, GDRs would be released up to 12 months after SP4 release (10/4/2018). We recommend you contact Microsoft Support Services to get assistance and find a solution to your problem.
You might be asked to upgrade to SP4 as part of troubleshooting.
This will do your work and you dont need to go more deep into the other steps. For those who already have that annoying message called windows is not activated in your black desktop these are the steps for you after i got this message saying that my windows is not genuine.
In my case i already applied Remove Wat 2.2.6 before i installed SP1,but then after i installed SP1 on my PC it was a mess.
