SQL Server 2008 R2 Installation "Server Browser" Won't Allow Password Change

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

I'm trying to install SQL Server 2008 R2 (the one from dreamspark) on my computer for local testing on a database app I'm working on.  For some reason when it gets to the form that handles service accounts and server collation configuration,  SQL Full-text Filter Daemon Launcher greys out the Startup Type box, and SQL Server Browser greys out the account and password boxes.  I can't figure out how to change these in any way to make the darn program install.  The help file told me to uninstall any existing SQL Server items on the computer, and to the best of my knowledge the only ones left were installed with Visual Studio 2010.

I'm using it so that I can ultimately convert a bunch of .DBF files to SQL Server files that I can import into a Windows Form App.  It's not going to be used for any kind of networking or connectivity for some time, I just need it to fuse a bunch of dbf's into a coherent VS compatible file (I've read I have to run them through Access or Excel first, which I can an will do).

Can anyone explain what's going on with this or offer a better help link than the program?  I'm completely confused by their entire set up and installation methods.

May the fleas of a thousand camels feast happily on the lower regions of your enemies. And may their arms be too short to scratch!

SQL Server 2005 - Installation in Cluster Environment - "Service SQL Server Browser (SQLBrowser) fai

Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition SP2 32-bit All updates and patches installed Two-node cluster environment configured. Cluster functions perfectly. Trying to install SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition (32-bit) as a clustered application. Installation proceeds fine until it begins to install the SQL Server Database Services product.

SQL Server 2008 - Installation Woe - .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

On a Windows 2003 R2 x64 server, I have been unable to install SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Edition x64. When running setup.exe, I almost instantaneously receive the following Microsoft SQL Server Setup error:"Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 installation has failed.SQL Server 2008 Setup requires .NET Framework to be installed."What does not make sense is that I successfully downloaded .NET Framework 3.5 from the Microsoft download site (published 8/11/2008) prior to the SQL Server 2008 installation attempt.http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=ab99342f-5d1a-413d-8319-81da479ab0d7&displaylang=enI do need to note that a few nights ago, prior to downloading the framework (3.5 SP1), I ran the SQL Server 2008 setup executable. I was prompted that in order to install SQL Server 2008, the setup program needed to first install .NET 3.5 SP1 and Windows Installer 4.5. I let the .NET 3.5 SP1 install run for about 1.5 to 2 hours and cancelled (now I wish I had just let it go).It is my understanding (correct me if I am wrong) that the SQL Server 2008 setup program initially checks for any pre-RTM versions of .NET 3.5 SP1 Framework. If one is found, it is then supposed to guide the user through both the installation of the .NET 3.5 SP1 Framework and Windows Installer 4.5. I have removed .NET 3.5 SP1 Framework (Add/Remove programs) and rebooted. However, upon runni

MSSQL 2008 R2: Change Server Collation Steps, with user DBs already of desired collation

On the default instance of SQL Server 2008 R2, I want to change the server collation from the usual US default SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS to an application vendor's required collation, Latin1_General_BIN.  I understand that changing the server collation is essentially the same as changing the collation of databases master and model -- is that a fair statement? But my main question is, since there are user databases on the server that I would like to preserve, can I not simply detatch the user DBs prior to performing the server collation change, and then reattach?  The database collation of the user databases is already set to Latin1_General_BIN.  This article, Setting and Changing the Server Collation, at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms179254.aspx says that to preserve the user databases, I should script all DB objects out, and bulk-copy all data out, because the DBs will have to be recreated and repopulated.  Can someone explain why I ought not simply detach and reattach the user DBs, given that they are already of the desired collation (i.e., the same collation that I will be changing the server collation to)? Your help much appreciated. -Tom

SQL Server 2008 R2 Installation and Service Pack 1 Question

I am migrating a SQL 2000 server to a SQL 2008 R2 server (on different physical servers) . When I ordered SQL Server 2008 the volume licensing allowed me to download sql server web 2008, sql server web 2008 R2 and sql server 2008 service pack 1. I don't know why I have three options to download. Don't I just need to just install the sql server 2008 Web R2? Are there any sql 2008 R2 service packs available?
