Try, try again with strange SQL 2008 error on Win7/Server 2k8

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

Got this error when trying to install SQL 2008 Service Pack 1 on Windows Server 2008.

Went on a wild search of trying to find yet another solution to a SQL 2k8 install problem, including downloading a CU, but then I found this.
Generally, if you just rerun it won't hit the issue again.
It worked.

Sigh.

Trying again. Its not just for bicycle riding any more!
