Troubleshooting Steps

The issue could be caused by the K2 Service that was unable to start in a timely manner due to multiple SmartObject Service Endpoints that needed to be started. 

To resolve this, please disable the SmartObject Service Endpoints in K2HostServer.exe.config (smoServices enableEndpoints="false"). This will allow the FixPack to be installed successfully.
