Product: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition -- Error 29503. The SQL Server service failed to start. For more information, see the SQL Server Books Online topics, "How to: View SQL Server 2005 Setup Log Files" and "Starting SQL Server
The error is (1067) The process terminated unexpectedly.
Initially the SQL Server was running over there, later one day it stopped. When trying to start manually I got "The process terminated unexpectedly" error. Tthen I uninstalled it and tried to install again, but got "Error 29503. The SQL Server
service failed to start" error while installation and installation rolled back. If I install it using Local System and without "Enable User Instance" I get same error but after multiple retry it started. However my desktop application is not
running and giving error message "Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failure process for the user instance. The connection will be closed".
I tried "sp_Configure .......... " and "Reconfigure" to enable user instance but still got "Failed to generate......" error.
Another problem is that SQL Server service starts in multiple retry.
I have tried most of the forum solutions however I am still getting the same error in my desktop application. Mos
