Hotfix installation instructions

This hotfix provides a Microsoft Installer (.msi) file that you can use to fix the existing Reporting2007.msi file in the installation media. Then, you can use the fixed Reporting2007.msi file to install Operations Manager 2007 Reporting. To do this, follow these steps:


Copy the following file from the hotfix package to a local folder or to a shared folder:



Run the file that you copied in step 1.


On the Select Installation Folder page of the installation wizard, you can specify a folder in which the hotfix will be installed. By default, this hotfix is installed in the following location:

%ProgramFiles%\System Center 2007 Hotfix Utility\Q951148


The Q951148 folder contains the following files:

A Q951148-x86.mst file for x86 platforms

A Q951148-x64.mst file for x64 platforms


Locate the Reporting2007.msi file in the Operations Manager 2007 Service Pack 1 installation media. The Reporting2007.msi is located in the following folder on the installation media:


Note The platform placeholder represents the platform version of Operations Manager 2007 Reporting that you want to install.


Copy this Reporting2007.msi file from the installation media to the Q951148 folder that is mentioned in step 3.


Change the working directory to the Q951148 folder that is mentioned in step 3. For example, if you used the default installation folder in step 2, open a command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

cd /d %ProgramFiles%\System Center 2007 Hotfix Utility\Q951148


At the command prompt, run the following command:

WiUseXfm.vbs Reporting2007.msi MST_File

Note Replace the MST_File placeholder with “Q951148-x86.mst” or with “Q951148-x64.mst,” as appropriate for your platform.


To verify that the Reporting2007.msi file is successfully fixed, check the last modified time of the Reporting2007.msi file.


Replace the old Reporting2007.msi file by copying the fixed Reporting2007.msi file onto the installation media. If the installation media is read-only, you can install Operations Manager 2007 Reporting directly by using the fixed Reporting2007.msi file. To do this, open a command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

msiexec /i Modified_MSI_Location\reporting2007.msi /l*v %TEMP%\MOMReporting.log

Note Replace the Modified_MSI_Location placeholder with the folder that contains the fixed Reporting2007.msi file.

Note After you follow these steps, the digital signature in the fixed Reporting2007.msi file will be broken. Therefore, you will receive a warning message when you run the fixed Reporting2007.msi file. You can safely ignore this warning message.
