SQL2005 Express Install fails with advisory that .NET 2.0 is either corrupt or missing

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
I am trying to install SQLExpress 2005 adv on an XP Pro SP2 machine standalone and keep on getting the same error -- "SQL setup has detected a problem with Microsoft .Net Framework installation and cannot proceed. Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 is either not installed on this system or is corrupt."I have uninstalled/reinstalled .Net 2.0 some many time that I think it come close to the population of China. Still the same message. I had no problems on a different machine so I cloned that Hard drive, re-activated the software and tried on this machine. Still the same problem. I know what you are thinking, it must be machine related. Both machine have identical hardware from motherboard, Bios, peripherals, memory, Hard drives, CDROM and DVD drives. I took the failed HD and put it in the machine that installed correctly and the same thing happened - the install failed with the same message.I used "installer" to check the install info -- Both .Net 1.1 and 2.0 show up properly.I ran MSIZAP !G to get rid of orphans.I uninstalled SQLExpress. Cleaned the registry. ran the clwireg-x86.exe, removed both .Net 1.1 and 2.0 several times. Blew the hard drive away sevral times and restarted from scratch.Still the same perfectly useless message.Any help would be appreciated at this stage.Motherboard is Asus P5QL/EPU, 2.5 gHz Intel P43 Quad core, 4 G DDR2, 160 SATA WD

SQL Server Express R2 Database Engine fails to install on XP Home (SP3)


I have had multiple failed attempts at installing SQL Server 2008 R2 Express on an elderly but reliable machine running XP Home with SP3. 
The support files and management tools loaded OK when I de-selected the database engine.  I was installing as a user with administrator rights. 
I wanted to start the DB as a service following boot without a user logged on.

The failure appeared as a message a 'Library not registered' at stage Slp_Config_SQLEngine_ADHlpr_Cpu32.  I cancelled at this point (although in other attempts I let it run on with similar, unsuccessful results).

Other posts covering failed installation do not appear to cover the same problem.  If they do, I am afraid it is my limited understanding!

The summary log file is below and what I think are the relevant lines from the detail are given after. 

Can anyone help identify the cause and suggest what I need to do to rectify it?

Many thanks.

Preventing SQL Server 2008 Express install fails


I'm working on an installer, that installs SQL Server 2008 Express SP1 (soon I will upgrade to SP2) silently, so that my customers can install it without making choises. It all works fine, except of course when the SQL Server installer fails for some reason.

I start the installer with the following parameters:

/QUIETSIMPLE /ACTION=Install /Configurationfile={tmp}\sql2008setup.ini

The ini file simply looks like this:


I do not wish to keep coding my installer reactively, meaning I want to take care of install issues before they happen on the customer side. Therefore I would like to ask here, and find all possible error scenarios, and code my way around them.

I have read the Installing SQL Server 2008 article, but I still have some questions.

This is what I have come up with for my installer so far:

   1. Only install on OS equal or higher

SQL Server 2008 Express Management Studio fails to install because it thinks visual studio is instal


I tried to install SQL Server 2008 R1 Express with Tools on Windows Server 2008 R2. It installed, but the management studio failed to install because it said I already had Visual Studio installed and it needed Visual Studio service pack 1 before Management Studio could install.

Visual Studio is nowhere to be found in Programs and Features, and when I try to install Visual Studio SP1, it won't install, saying:

A compatible version of Visual Studio 2008 was not detected on the system. This update is designed for only the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (ENU) product family, and is not compatible with any Express editions.

Though I can't find any Express version of SP1 to try, and there is no SP1 in windows update.

I am installing a Client side SQL 2005 Express that needs SQL-DMO. The Client computer does not have SQL Server 2005 Express installed. I have installed all the MDAC and .Net 2.0.

How do I get SQL-DMO installed on a SQL Server 2005 Express Client computer?

SQL Server 2008 R2 fails after Windows XP Pro SP3 install

We recently encountered an issue with SQL Server 2008 R2 failing to run after the upgrade from Windows XP Pro SP2 to SP3. This was tested and reproduced (with varying results) on more than one computer. Steps to reproduce this. On a Windows XP Pro machine with Service Pack 2 installed, install SQL Server 2008 R2. Next upgrade Windows to Service Pack 3. Now upon opening SSMS or trying to start the SQL server service you receive the following message: "This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem". In some instances reinstalling/repairing SQL Server 2008 R2 does fix the issue.  In other cases the installer crashes and you need to use msizap to clean it up before you can reinstall.  In other cases you do not receive any errors at all. After testing in multiple virtual machines it looks like the cleaner the Windows install the more likely you are to run into this issue.  On machines with most or all windows updates (prior to SP3) installed you do not necessarily even get the failure.  On machines with just Windows XP Pro SP2 installed with no additional updates you get the failure every time. Obviously the SQL Server 2008 R2 prerequisites are installed in all cases in order to be able to install SQL server to begin with. Any help with this would be appre

SQL Server Express 2008 Setup fails. Support Rule "Restart Computer" Failed

Hi, I have been trying to install SQL Server Express for most of the day now without any luck.  Whatever I do setup fails at the stage of Setup Support Rules, Rule "Restart Computer" - Failed.  Needles to say I have restarted (several times!) and I have tried downloading  and installing the "Advanced", "Tools" and "Basic" versions, all give the same error.  Trying a repair does the same.  I have been searching the net for an answer without success, any help would be MUCH appreciated. Further info: I am trying to install a stand-alone installation on to a single PC running under XP SP 3 with .NET 3.5 SP1 installed.  The PC did have some earler versions of SQL server installed but I (?hopefully?) removed all of these through Control Panel.  Before trying the first SQL install I installed Windows installer 4.5 and PowerShell 1.0 as per the Microsoft Instructions. Running SQL Server Configuration Manager results in an error (MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap in might not have been installed correctly).  A directory structure for SQL server exists in "Program Files".  Services MSC shows SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS) as Automatic Statup (not running).  Trying to start this manually gives error 14001: "application configuration incorrect - re-install to fix" .......... Which is precisely what I'm trying to do.........:(

Unable to install SQL Server 2008 Express R2 after installing .NET 4.0

Hi experts, I intend to redistribute SQL Server 2008 Express R2 in my installer. I've extracted the setup files from SQLEXPR32_x86.exe and pass in the appropriate command line parameters during the setup. Recently, I noticed if I applied the following Windows Update: .NET 4.0 Client Profile, I will hit into the following error when I installed SQL express. .NET Runtime 4.0 Error Reporting EventType clr20r3, P1 setup100.exe, P2 10.50.1600.1, P3 4bb67524, P4 mscorlib, P5, P6 4ba1da6f, P7 44f0, P8 32, P9 system.security.security, P10 NIL. .NET Runtime Application: setup100.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception. Exception Info: System.Security.SecurityException Stack: at Microsoft.SqlServer.Chainer.Setup.Setup.DebugBreak() at Microsoft.SqlServer.Chainer.Setup.Setup.Main() Running the setup.exe from a file server will give these errors but if I copied the entire setup files to a local folder and run setup.exe from there, it runs fine. May I know what am I missing? I definitely need to support to install SQL express running from a file server location. Thanks, MK  

Which SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack to Install?

I have Windows 2008 Small Business Server Standard Edition.  When I scan for updates I get two different SQL service packs showing up, with the same KB955706 number.  I'm wondering which I should install, or if both, what order to install them in?  The first one is labeled: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 The second one is labeled: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services Service Pack 3 For applications, I have Blackbaud The Financial Edge v7.78 (accounting package for clubs) installed that uses SQL Server 2005 Express Edition for its database engine.  The new upgrade for this software requires SP3 which is why I need to know which service pack to install.  Also, please let me know if there are any tricks to getting the service packs installed on 2008 SBS Standard Edition.  I know sometimes registry settings need to be changed for SQL service packs to be installed properly. Thank you for your help.  

Cannot Install SQL Server 2005 Express due to MSXML 6 sp2

Got an XP Sp3 box - uninstalled SQL server 2008 Express r2.  Now I'm trying to install SQL server 2005 and am getting the ol' MSXML 6 SP2 error which is keeping SQL Server 2005 from installing.  Last time this happend there was the handy Installer Clean Up Utility but now you go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301 and it's gone.  So what is the solution now?  Everything I've googled says to use the installer cleaner but it doesn't exist now so what now?

Net Framework Install fails

Reviewed the links and unfortunately that did not help. When my DYMO Stamps program stopped working I contacted them and they suggested I remove Net Framework 2x and download/install 3.5. Uninstall of 2x modules was uneventful. When I try to install 3.5 it goes through the whole install procedure and then reports it failed. I do not know where to look for an error log. Now "updates" is permanently in my tray trying to install 3.5. I get the following message: The following updates were not installed: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and >NET Framework 3.5 Family Update for .NET versions 2.0 through 3.5 (KB952847) x86.

SQL Server 2008 Express impossible to install.

As part of ARCserve backup r15, SQL Server 2008 Express is to be installed on a windows 2003 sp2 server (french language). All the prerequistes are present (power shell, .NET 3.5, Windows Installer 4.5...). The install fails with an -2147024893 error. I have not found anything conclusive about this error on the net. To get down on the issue I tried to install sql 2008 Express SP1 manually first. It fails with no error, returning to the main installation screen after installing the support files. The SQLSetup.log shows no apparent error but stop abruptly with the following : "Attempting to launch process d:\23ab1738a0f035434457b033\x86\setup100.exe"... as if this attempt was "suspended in the air". I have already tried to uninstall/install .NET 3.5 SP1, PowerShell, Windows Installer 4.5. No previous version of SQL had never been existed on this server. I even run "caspol.exe /machine -reset". I have tried the installation with SQL 2008 Express in english... I made registry cleanups... It's been one week of investigation and for the first time in my career I'm "dry". Is my case desperate ?

After a fresh install of Win XP, MSVCP71.dll and msvcr71.dll are Missing

Hi,   I have a Dell XPS 410 desktop and installed Win XP Media Center with a Service Pack 2.   Evrything looks fine but ...when I run some application, my screen says MSVCP71.dll and MSVCR71.dll are missing.   Even after a fresh install of Win XP Media Center, I don't understand why a few system files are missing... Could you tell me what causes the problem? Do I have a defective Windows XP CD?   Is it normal with a fresh install of Win XP with Service Pack 2, missing MSVCP71.dll and MSVCR71.dll?   Thanks
