Missing KB2919355 When Installing SQL Server

Ryan Allport explains how to install SQL Server 2016 on Windows Server 2012 R2 when you get the Rule “KB2919355 Installation” failed error message:

As you can see, the upgrade feature rules check failed around the KB2919355 installation. At this point, reading the error message, I assumed (I know, I know, it’s something we should never do as a DBA!) that the patch had been downloaded and applied during the latest round of Windows patching, and all that was required was a server reboot. I was wrong.

Upon running the upgrade again, I got the same error message. Hmm, annoying. So, after some Googling I was confident I knew what to do to resolve this; download and install the KB2919355 patch. So, I downloaded the patch from the official Microsoft website (KB2919355) and kicked off the installation.

There’s a bit more to it than “install the patch.”
