This article provides brief information and steps to resolve the following error while installing Patch Manager:


Setup is missing an installation prerequisite:

-Microsoft SQL Server 2012 System CLR Types. To continue, install SQL Server 2012 System CLR Types from and then run the Setup operation again. 




All Patch Manager versions



The Microsoft SQL Server CLR types have been removed.

The link that Microsoft provides is to the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 download which will not help the installation of Patch Manager. You will also see that every file for Microsoft SQL Server CLR types are the same file name so be careful what you save them as.


  1. Go to link that you need the CLR type for, expand INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS and scroll down to the Microsoft SQL CLR types and download the version you are missing.


   2. Once the CLR types that were missing have been installed there is no restart required. You can restart the Patch                Manager installer and it should be successful.
