I'm trying to install patch manager in my non-domain environment. my WSUS runs windows server 2008. I have a blank box running the same version as my wsus server. i chose to install a local sql database, i chose that i will add my own wsus server., but the configuration wizard gives me this error:
"The configuration wizard has failed
• Microsoft Update Sevices installation failed. Details: The specified executable is not a valid application for this OS platform."
(See attached snapshot)
I don't know if i install patch manager on a different server version(Maybe WS2012) will make any difference. the reason why i chose to use server 2008 instead of 2012 i was told that patch manager server and wsus server must be of the same version so that communication can be faster/reliable. my swsus runs server 2008.
and also "MMC cannot initialize the snap-in" when i try to run the actual patch manager launcher icon.
