Hello,

I've never heard of that happening. Try reinstalling the patch.

thats all i can share because this problem come from uninstall error which cause the patch to install at the last recent directory..

and i think admin or moderator should post the topic about this "An error (-5005 : 0x80000ffff) has occured while running setup. " error.

Thank you..
