BDD 2007 Patch Proper Installation
In case you do not want to install BDD 2007 v 1.1 and just want the hotfix instead make sure you install it correctly. Ben Hunter and Michael Niehaus both point this out what could go wrong on their blogs.
Be sure to use the correct installation command line as detailed by Michael Niehaus. If you do not install the patch in the correct manner you may find that it has changed your customized scripts or even updated the location of the distribution share in the registry. Here are some alternatives:
1. Replace all the files with new versions from the patch, without disturbing registry entries:
msiexec /update BDD2007_x86_Patch1.msp REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=as
2. Update without replacing modified scripts:
msiexec /p BDD2007_Patch1_x86.msp REINSTALL=ALL /quiet
