I want to install MS SQL 2005 Exp. edition in windows server. For that I had already downloaded the SP2 MS SQL 2005 exp. edition from Microsoft web site. I am geeting error while trying to install SQL: "The SQL service failed to strat .

Our Server configuration is windows 2008 R2 with 32 bit prcessor.

Before that i had install the same but SQL Server Management Studio icon is not showing, so I unstalled SQL and then trying to fresh installation.

Please help me to resolve this issues.

SQL Server Reporting Services not able to install on Windows Vista Home Premium


Recently I had a weird problem while trying to install SQL Server Reporting Service in my local PC. I am using Windows Vista Home Premium and I wanted to configure SSRS in my PC. During the installation, the setup wizard listed all the services that we want to install and I found that only Reporting Server checkbox option was disabled and I wondered why??? I thought it may be becuase of some installation problem and tried again and its useless... I googled lot of sites for 3 days and finally found that due to some IIS issues, it is not possible to install Reporting Server in Vista Home Premium version. Reporting Server needs some specific IIS features to be installed in the machine.

But unfortunately those features are not available for Home Premium users which in term restricts users not to install reporting server in our PCs... Also, Microsoft has accepted it as an issue and its not possible to get it install in Home Premium...just wanted to share and might be useful for someone like me.

SQL Server 2005 Developer on Windows 7 (32-bit)


I've installed this version using a Windows logon configuration.  I have Administrator privileges on Windows.  Problem is, I can't open any of the default databases (AdventureWorks, etc.), and I can't make security modifications.  I can, however, open the default Report Server.  I've never experienced this before -- not even on the two previous occassions I installed this SQL Server on other computers.

Does anybody have an answer?



Error during SQL Server 2008 setup on windows 7 home premium



I have Windows 7 home Premium on 64 bit machine. I have installed Visual Studio 2008 sucessfully and SQL Server 2008 installer also shows "successful" installation. However when I try to login thru Sql mgmt Studio, I get error " No process is on the other end of the pipe". I checked SQL Server configuration and Named Pipes configuration, that seems all right. When I checked event log, it had following msg:

The Tabular Data Stream (TDS) version 0x730a0003 of the client library used to open the connection is unsupported or unknown. The connection has been closed.

on googling, some of posts suggest to download .Net f/w 2.0 SP1. I downloaded the same from MS site, but on instllation, I get msg "this version is not supported on windows vista".

Please suggest any solution/workaround, i have been struggling with this for sometime now.

thanks in advance

Installing SQL Server 2005 Enterprise in Windows 7 Professional



i have Windwos 7 Professional Installed in my computer. also i have installed Visual Studio 2008 as well.

last week i wanted to install SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition in my computer so i came to know that u need the SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 for this as well.

after obtaining both the Enterprise Edition Setup and the SP3 Setup of SQL Server 2005, i began the installation. first i installed the server. and selected The Server and Workstation components. but when the installation was progressing, it gave a message that the workstation componenets could not be installed and hence only the MSSQLSERVER Service got installed. i take think this so seriously hoping that client tools (workstation componenets) can be installed after the SP3 is being installed. so after the setup completed, i installed SP3 as well. even there, the client tools were disabled.

after SP3 installation and System Restart, i couldnt find Managament Studio; so i again went to the SQL server 2005 setup and selected the client tools to be installed. but just before the installation started, an error message prompted saying that "one or more componenets could not be installed" and then exiting the setup..


please advise what i am missing. i tried the same thing using SQL Server 2005 Standard but the same thing happens.
