SQL 2008 : “Invoke or BeginInvoke” SP1 Error

SQL 2008 : “Invoke or BeginInvoke” SP1 Error

I recently came across an error when installing SP1 on a Windows 2008 R2 x64/SQL 2008 Standard x64 environment which prevened me from installing the service pack:

“Invoke or BeginInvoke cannot be called on a control until the window handle has been created.”

As a work around I identified that I was able to right-click the update and select ‘Run as Administrator.’ I was then able to complete the update without issue.
