Unable to install SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services Service Pack 4 (KB2463332)



Rookie here. Using SQL for an eBay software program we have been running for two years. There were simple step by step instructions to install -- point being, I really dont understand this stuff.

Running Windows XP SP3.

Automatic Updates is trying to install the version shown in the Title of this message. It fails to install and gives me the error: SQL BPA command line has encountered a problem and needs to close.

I do not know where to access the error log. I will post if someone can tell me the correct one to find. In the following directory, C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\, there are directories for MSSQL.1, MSSQL.2 and MSSQL.3. Two of them show log directories with today's date.

Any and all help is very much appreciated.

Thank you!

SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 (KB955706) update is successful but repeats installin

  Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 (KB955706) (update 1 of 1) This update seems to be stuck in a loop of installing, each time it successfull installs acccording to automatic updates. Then says it requires installing again straight away. This has been happening for 10 days now. I have tried a manual update from the website rather than automatic updates, no change. Any ideas why? Have posted in Windows update which is where I think the problem lies but they have suggested I post here also.

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.  

SQL 2008 Express with advanced services and Visual studios 2010

Hi could someone please help me. Im running the following software: SQL 2008 Express R2 with advanced services Visual Studios 2010 Ultimate   I am trying to using Sql in Visual studios to use full text indexing but I am attaching a database that already exists. My problem is that I can use the full text indexing? I had it working once but then when i tried to FREETEXT search through my table it said that I didn't have an index on that table when I know I do cause I went to make sure. I think that perhaps its referencing the wrong database because I cant seem to add the database into my project? I am so confused as to how SQL express instances work so not sure what I am doing wrong? PLEASE HELP? 

SQL Server 2005 Express Edition - GUI to set permissions on stored procedures

Hi there, I have SQL Serve 2005 Express Edition (Build 2600: Service Pack 3) installed; I also have the Management Console installed. My problem is that I cannot set execute permission, or any other type of permissions on my stored procedures through the GUI, as the Property menu item is missing from the right click menu. I read somewhere that this happens when you have SP1, but as I stated above I have got SP3 installed... Any help?   Regards, D.

Uable to successfully install SQL Server 2005 (Express Edition) Service Pack 3 (KB955706)

After repeated attempts, I am unable to install the MSSQL Server 2005 (Express Edition) Service Pack 3 (KB955706).  From Live Update, the installation initializes but then reports that it was unable to install.  The first couple of times I received Error Code 0x65B, but that doesn't come up any longer. I have ACT! Database version 2007 (9.0) and it is unable to access the database to open it because it uses the MSSQL??  Also, there used to be an MSSQL icon below in my system tray, but that no longer appears.  When I reboot it will be on briefly, but then goes away.. MS Customer Support has attempted to help (Case ID SRX1135612820) but now tell me that this is beyond their expertise.  They had me try to reload MMSQL 2005 but no change. Please help! Thanks!!  Terry

SQL Server 2005 Express (Advanced) warning msg. Requires 32-.bit ASP.net

accidentally installed 2005 express edition over the full edition

I accidentally chose to install Express when I was installing Visual Studio 2008. Now when Windows Update attempts to update Express Edition to SP3, I get a error code 7367. Following the link to the troubleshooting section doesn't help. I suspect Express was only partially installed, and so Update fails. Any ideas how to rectify this? Thanks, Colin

SQL Express 2005 Backup MDF


Windows Server 2008 Standard

I have been looking through the SQL express management studio to try and setup a scheduled backup for a database but cant seem to figure out how to do this.  Any link or instructions is appreciated.  I am running backup exec 12.0 and currently have it putting the mdf and ldf to tape but I am not sure if this is appropriate for a live database.  I assume I should be using SQL to dump all necessary files (do i need more than mdf and ldf?) somewhere then pick up those files with backup exec?

Thanks in advance!

Developing Windows Services using Express Edition of C#


I've been trying to create a windows service using the express edition of C#. Unfortunately, there are no in-built templates for doing this (like in Pro, and all of the other editions).

Is there a way to download the templates? Or is it possible to program the service without using the helpers in the IDE. For example, I have managed to create a service by referencing the relevant DLL and inheriting the correct class, but I cannot create the installer class.

Has anyone else tried to create a service without using the IDE?

Also, just to clarify here, I do mean Windows Services and not webservices.


Can't install SQL Server Express with Advanced services


I have been trying to install SQL Server Express without success (Windows 7, 64 bit).  All systems are go until I get when I get to the end of the installation process I get the following message:

'' is not a valid login or you do not have permission

and a screen that says that the installation of the Database Engine and SQL Server Replication has failed, along with a pop-up that reads "SQL Server 2008 R2 Setup has stopped working".  It's one of those deadly messages.

Along the way there is a choice for Authentication Mode where I choose the default 'Windows authentication mode'.  'Mixed mode' has a choice for a password.  Also there is a choice to 'Add Current User'.  On one of my installation attempts I clicked this and nothing happened.  On another attempt I chose 'Add' and added 'Local\Adminstrator' (per some post I read).  No worky.

I have also tried installing it as administrator and disabled Windows 7 user account control

Any ideas? Thanks all.

Here is the log file:
