full text service install fails on sql 2008 over dependant features

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :

I'm running SQL Server 2008 (SP1) Standard Edition on Windows 2003 Server. I tried to install the full text service from the disk but am getting the errors below related to dependencies. Has anyone encountered this before? There was no previous installation of SQL on this box. I cannot find anything on this specific issue anywhere. Thanks!

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 2008 R2 Setup fails to install properly


Hello, I am not able to install 2008 R2 on my laptop. I have 2005 and 2008 installed previously. It says in one of the attached screenshots that the OLAP service cannot be started. I have attached the errors in screenshots and also my summary log, please advise thank you.

Edit: I am able to manually startup the SQL 2008 R2 service, and can login as "sa" without a password... but strangely I did select mix mode authentication and did supply a password during the installation wizard too..


Overall summary:
  Final result:                  SQL Server installation failed. To continue, investigate the

reason for the failure, correct the problem, uninstall SQL Server, and then rerun SQL Server

SQL 2008 Full-Text-Catalog Population Schedule "Repopulate catalog" grayed-out (inactive)


We've recently upgraded our server from SQL 2000 to SQL 2008 and we're having a problem scheduling the recurring repopulation of our full-text search catalogs.

Under the "General" page of the "Full-Text Catalog Properties" window, the "Repopulate catalog" radio button is disabled (grayed out).

Under the "Population Schedule" page  of the "Full-Text Catalog Properties" window, the "Population Type" dropdown contains ONLY "Catalog - optimze".  How do we schedule the full-text catalog repopulation? What setting are we missing?


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

Enable Full Text Index in VWD 2008 / SQL Server Express 2008


 Hi, I am using VWD 2008 Express and SQL Server 2008 Express. I want to enable full text index in some of my table. How do I do that? I only have  SQL Server Management Studio Express 2008. As far as I know, I cannot use SQL Server Management Studio Express 2008 to update the full text catalog according to : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms365247.aspx

My tables are also not enable Full Text Search by default. 


 Any help would be very much appreciated!

 Edit 1: Someone had a similar problem to mine on this link: http://forums.asp.net/t/1169961.aspx
I installed the Sql Server 2008 Express with Advance Services and made sure that Full Text functionality is installed. However I don't get a full text menu in SQL Server Management Studio. 

 Edit 2: I uninstall and reinstall SQL Server 2008 Express with Advance Services but still couldn't be able to enable full text index.

 Edit 3: After see this, I guess I have to do it manually then:  http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?siteid=1&PostID=3912985

How to install SQL Server 2008 shared features in another directory?


The Shared feature directory is greyed out during installation.  I have uninstalled all SQL Server 2008 instances and shared features.

I thought this might be caused by SQL Server 2008 Browser and SQL Server 2008 Setup Support Files were still installed.  SQL Server 2008 Browser was used by SQL Server 2005 instances and was depending on SQL Server 2008 Setup Support Files.  I have uninstalled them but the Shared feature directory is still greyed out.  So, how to install SQL Server 2008 shared features in another directory without uninstalling SQL Server 2005 instances and shared features?  If it is not possible due to shared tools between SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008, can it be done by only uninstalling SQL Server 2005 shared features? If yes, which SQL Server 2005 shared features must be uninstalled?


MSSQL 2008 SP1 install fails: A failure was detected for a previous installation, patch, or repair

When attempting to install SQL Server 2008 SP1, I get the "Setup Failure" message below, along with Error code 0x84B20001.  I did read the summary*.txt files from previous installations in "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log" as mentioned in the error message; the "Final result" and "Exit message" of the previous install is "Passed", so I'm not finding an answer that way.  I have also pasted the version info below.  What would you advise?

A failure was detected for a previous installation, patch, or repair during configuration for features [SQL_DTS_Full,Connectivity_Full,SQL_SSMS_Full,SDK_Full,Tools_Legacy_Full,SQL_BIDS_Full,SQL_SSMS_Adv,SQL_PowerShell_Tools_ANS,SQL_WRITER,]. In order to apply this patch package (KB968369), you must resolve any issues with the previous operation that failed. View the summary.txt log to determine why the previous operation failed.

full-text search in SQl 2005 and 2008


Considering that full text search engine is now integrated into SQL in 2008 version comparing to 2005, has anybody notice any difference in full text search speed after migrating from 2005 to 2008 using the same type of hardware?

Full text search missing from one instance on one node of 3 node MSSQL 2008 cluster


Hello to all, 

I just started at a new client and on becoming familiar with the environment, I noticed that one of our instances on one node is missing the full text search option. The instance is not active on this node but I fear that if we ever need to failover it wont work.

The full text option is installed on the active node instance and the other passive node.

How do I add the full text search option to the instance on the node thats missing it ?

thank you.

MS SQL 2008 SBS install fails on Server 2008 R2 Standard edition


According to edition requirement (http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2009/03/23/requirements-for-installing-sql-2008-standard-edition-for-small-business.aspx), I thought I met the requirements but this link tells me not only I need both the standard edition AND in a domain??  I have Windows 2008 Standard R2 edition.


This is a standalone server and there's no domain.  I can promote it to be a domain controller but don't want that.  Is it the "R2" part that its failing.  I can downgrade to the non-R2 with SP2.  (Windows Server 2008 with sp2).

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.
