SCCM 2012 R2: Cannot stop tmlisten service when installing KB2905002

December 23, 2013 1 comment

I had an issue with installing SCCM 2012 R2 hotfix KB2905002
Stop services: error

It seems that this hotfix tries to stop the anti-virus service which was in my case the Trend Micro Listener service: Cannot stop tmlisten service on computer

Make sure that you stop the Anti-virus services before installing KB2905002. Probably the same issue with other Anti-Virus products.

Server 2008 R2: KMS Error 0xC004F050 Invalid product key

Recently I had an issue with installing a server 2012 R2 KMS key on a Server 2008 R2 KMS host:

Error: 0xC004F050 The Software Licensing Service reported that the product key is invalid.


However I installed the kms hotfix kb2757817 for Server 2012 support but this was not sufficient. You really need to watch out for the correct hotfix which is kb2885698.

Server 2012 KMS support:
Server 2012 R2 KMS support:

Make sure that you install the correct hotfix 🙂
