    What is the current SP level of CR and what SP Level you are trying to apply?

    One of the possible solutions for the error (According to KBA

    1673624 - Failed to update setup engine executables. Program will exit

    Rename the "C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\setup.exe" to "setup.exe.old" and re-run the installer.
