SQL Server SP3 was not correctly installed

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server


i am running MS SQL Server 2005 Enterpreis Edition x64.
There are several local disks on the server of sql: ?:\ , X:\ ...
The SQL Server is installed on C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\

The SP3 was installed on SQL Server using WSUS.
Recently i have found out that there is a folder on disk X:\ (X:\596166c4744e026ff11d) with a lot of files and folders like "hotfixsql", "hotfixdts" etc.
I have tried to remove this folder but I got an error message:
Cannot delete sqlrun_tools: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.
In file X:\596166c4744e026ff11d\1033\eula.txt I have found the following info:

So these hotfixes have to do with SQL Server.

I have to move disc X:\ but I can not do it because of these strange files...

But why are these files not on disk C:\?
And why are they necessary for SQL Server?

Please help me..

Thank you for your time

Do SharePoint 2007 and VS2010 have to be installed to the same Windows Server machine?

For WSS 3.0 development using VS 2005, I learned that we need to install VSeWSS to the Windows Server where the WSS 3.0 was installed.  For MOSS 2007 development using VS 2010, do we need to have VS 2010  nstalled to the same Windows Server?  Thanks, Jeffrey

how to format server tag correctly?

I'm trying to display images in a GridView, but have a problem with this code:<asp:TemplateField> <ItemTemplate> <asp:Image ID="Image1" Height = "100" Width = "100" runat="server" //Error message here ImageUrl = = '<%# Eval("ID", "ImageProd.aspx?ImageID={0}")%>' /> //Warning here </ItemTemplate> </asp:TemplateField>The error message says: "Server tag is not correctly formatted."and the warning says: "Validation (ASP.Net): If this attribute value is enclosed in quotation marks, the quotation marks must match." I have this same warning on another interface where I just display one picture and not in a GridView and the image displays fine.Warning 7 Validation (ASP.Net): If this attribute value is enclosed in quotation marks, the quotation marks must match.

VS 2008, in addition to VSeWSS, has to be installed to the WSS3.0/MOSS2007 web server?

We just started to develop SharePoint Intranet by using WSS 3.0.  To get a first hand experience in developing SharePoint Web Parts in VS 2008, I plan to install VSeWSS to the web server where we installed WSS3.0, and MOSS2007 in the future. Do I still need to install VS 2008 to this web server, or I can develop SharePoint web parts from my workstation where VS 2008 was already installed?

Rebooting one Instance on a SQL 2008 Server with multiple instances installed

Hello, Hoping someone can answer the following questions ... If I have SQL Server 2008 with multiple Named Instances configured on it, can I reboot one Named Instance without rebooting any of the other Named Instances, or without having to reboot the entire server ? For example, if I have an application that needs to be re-booted and it requires the Database to be re-booted. Regards, JD

Getting Sql Server Management Studio 2008 installed on local computer

Hello, I have been trying to figure out this problem for a while now so hopefully someone can help me out - I would really appreciate it! Right now I have SQl Server Management Studio2005 installed on my computer for a SQL sever that we have. We recently got a 2008 sql server and if I remotely access the server, I can see that SQL Management Studio 2008 has been isntalled on the new server. I need to build new databases but need SQL Management Studio 2008 on my computer and I have no idea how to get it. I have a "Microsoft SQl Server 2008 R2" folder on my computer, and I have already tried clicking on "Configuration Tools" and then "SQL Server Installation center" and it isntalls a bunch of things, but none of them are "SQL Server Management Studio 2008."  I also found a link on a Microsoft website that says it's SQL Server Management studio 2008 R2 but it was just the same bunch of programs I already downloaded. How do I install Sql Server Managment Studio 2008 on my computer?! Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Preventing the "This program might not have installed correctly" warning when (not) installing .NET

Hi all,I am trying to create an installer using Installshield 2009 Pro, which needs to include .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (the full version or the web downloader, depending on the deployment method). I am using the built-in prerequisites and everything works fine on XP and Vista.However, on Windows7 the installation causes the "This program might not have installed correctly" warning to appear in installer versions that include the .NET Framework prerequisite; I need to prevent this.I understand that Windows7 already includes .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (and that the .NET setup does not support Windows7), however I cannot find a way to prevent the prerequisite from attempting to install on that OS (the built-in checks seem not to prevent it, either). Either that, or the failure to install is what actually prompts the error message in the first place.So can anybody offer any guidance on how to prevent this warning on Windows7? So far the only choice I can think of is to have a separate installer for Windows7 that does not include the .NET prerequisite, however because it is a requirement for the CD version to include the full .NET installer rather than just the downloader, space is already at a premium.Thanks in advance.

Getting .net framework 2 not installed, when setup sql server 2005 express, though framework 4 is in

My platform is windows xp professional sp3, on a dell pc.  I want to install sql server 2005 express edition. sql server 2005 express edition service pack 3, download page, published date 12/15/2008, states "Install .NET Framework 2.0 or later", note the "or later".  It also states windows xp. .NET Framework 2.0 download page states windows xp sp2, and I have seen forum postings about a problem when it is xp sp3. .NET Framework 4 (Standalone Installer) download page, date published 4/12/2010, states windows xp sp3. I download .NET Framework 4, i.e. dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe, and install it. I download sql server 2005 express edition service pack 3, i.e. sqlexpr32.exe, and run it, and it does some file extractions, and then message "The Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 is not installed. Please install before running Setup." Is this the expected behaviour?  Would I be better using sql server 2008 express edition? Other info: There was a .net framework 1.1 on the pc to begin with, but I removed it, and ran the sql exe again and still the message. There was and is a sql server desktop engine on the pc, though it's never been used.  Thank you for any help you can give with this. ----Philip

"This program might not have installed correctly" - Program Compatibility Assistant problem


Hello everyone,

I wrote a small tool in C# which does nothing more than to Unpack a couple of files from A to B.

My Problem with the PCA is that whenever I close the Program on a Windows 7 machine (and my guess is on Vista too) that the a dialog pops up which is asking the user if the program was installed correctly. I can combine the pieces somehow and imagine why windows does it, but I would rather not have the users to be confused. What steps are necessary to stop the PCA asking the questions since it's not really an Installer?


Any help would be appreciated.



Security Update for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 (KB970892) could not be installed


Auto updates picked up this update to install but it wouldn't install. I tried doing it manually with no success. Anyone run across this?I have the service pack 2 with updates already. What would cause this?

Silent install of SQL Server 2005 fails when SQL Server 2008 is installed


We currently install SQL Server 2005 Express silently during our installation, using the following switches


We also attach a 2005-created database immediately after using the following command line (^ is a path concat operator in Installshield):

sqlcmd.exe -S .\\SQLEXPRESS -E -i \"" + svConfigPath ^ "SetupUapDB.sql\" -vmdfpath=\"" + svConfigPath ^ "UapCfg.mdf\" -vldfpath=\"" + svConfigPath ^ "UapCfg_log.ldf\" -o \"" + svConfigPath ^ "SqlCreateDB.txt\" -e

Note that we do not specify an instance name.  We ran into a situation where someone had installed SQL Server 2008 on a box using a default instance name and our install then failed.  I am considering 2 possible fixes, and have questions for both.

Fix #1: Specify an instance name.  Ideally this would install SQL Server 2005 Express side by side with SQL Server 2008, create a unique instance name and we'd be good to go right?  If yes, what is the accepted convention for specifying instance names?

Fix #2: Not sure if this is possible.  Can we detect if SQL Server 2008 is on the box, and if yes, apply our 2005 database to it instead?  In this case (tell me

Help with WSS 2.0 installed server


Hi there, please excuse my ignorance but I have designed a website using html and accessed a server where WSS 2.0 is installed. Currently there is a website on the server and have been asked to remove it.

Once gaining ftp access I dont see any files on the server (eg: default.aspx) yet when i visit the website the main page is default.aspx.

Im assuming that aspx is a technology which i dont understand so just wanted to ask if anyone can guide me with a few words.

Can I just upload my html files and the site will work?

How or where do I find the file/folder that has the default.aspx file in it so that I can delete it?

If it helps, when I login via ftp i see the following.

Install Error -- The install in progress conflicts with a previous installed MS Office 2010 Server P



Working on a development image in Hyper-V.  This image had never had any beta installed of any product.  Had SharePoint Server 2010 and Office Web Apps installed but another installation of another product messed up IIS settings.  It was easier to just uninstall both and start again.  I uninstalled both fine but now when I try to reinstall SharePoint I get an error message saying:

"The install install in progress conflicts with a previous installed Microsft Office 2010 Server Product"

I have done multiple reboots, manually deleted the SharePoint folders on the machine and run CC Cleaner.  Still I get this error.

I even tried the advice suggsted in this blog post: http://blogs.technet.com/chad/archive/2010/04/28/Installing-SharePoint-2010-RTM-Over-Previous-Versions.aspx even though I never had beta installed.

Anyone have anythoughts?
